Not only will you be taught obedience, you will also learn how to teach your dog manners & basic etiquette such as "leave it!", no jumping up, how to greet people properly & use very soft mouth at all times. You will be shown fun games to play at home with your dog to teach all of these.

Day walk

(daycare alternative)


As an alternative to doggy daycare, have your dog walked under the supervision of a master dog trainer!

Not only will your pooch exercise and have fun, they'll have the opportunity to socialize in group settings. For the energetic ones, fetch to run and chase will be available. For our older dogs, the pace will be a nice slow walk. 


Basic obedience commands like "come" will also be enforced. Pick up your happy and exhausted friend on the way home!
