A dog behavior assessment is a series of structured interactions with a prospective day care dog that are designed to determine whether the day care environment will be a safe and successful social setting for both the new dog and the established day care dogs.
Pet owners are sometimes surprised that while doggy day care can be an excellent environment for some, it is not the right fit for many other healthy, social, normal dogs.
Taking our dogs for longline walks (sometimes called “Decompression Walks”, a term coined by professional dog trainer Sarah Stremming) has proven to be an excellent way to decrease daily stress and anxiety in dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds, and behavior, as well as a healthy, low-impact form of exercise.
For new puppy owners, whether or not to play tug of war with their puppy is a common question! Living with a young puppy can sometimes feel like living with an adorable piranha.
