walking

Any stay-at home dog will tell you, sleeping on the couch and working on chew toys is not as easy as it seems.

Whether it’s a stroll through the neighborhood or a romp at the park your dog and his walker will have a fetching good time! For young puppies, we are happy to visit your home to clean up the wee-wee pads or newspaper & spend some play time (or lap nappy sleep time) with your little one.

As mom always said, practice makes perfect! This rings true with your pooch’s manners!

If he doesn’t practice manners routinely, the behaviors will never get stronger.We will happily install new basic manners, hone and polish those you’ve started, or even teach a trick or two!

You will receive a daily write up on our training session along with appropriate handouts and exercises to work on with your pup.

Do your dog a favor!
