My daughter, Aida, and I have cared for and trained horses, dogs, cats, and birds all our lives. Our overall goal is to help people and animals get along better. It has been said that the best reward for a well-trained animal is the ability to include your pet, or to be included as a pet, in all aspects of the family life.
We have three dogs whom we adopted and trained ourselves, and we welcome one more dog at a time to join our pack for daycare or overnights. We will come to your home and pick your pup up for a fun day of activities, including playing and training in dog parks, swimming or wading in lakes, trekking in the woods, and snowshoeing in (unsurprisingly) the SNOW! Your pup can chill in our home or play with my pups in our large, grassy, fenced-in yard. After your pup's stay with us, we can drop him off at home again. We can also include an overnight stay at your house to keep your pup company if you are traveling and do not want him to board away from his comfort zone; alternatively, he/she can spend the night here with us.
In terms of doggie care-givers, what sets us apart is the following: we create a lesson-plan for walking, training, and day/overnight care that works for both you and your dog with training interventions while your dog is with us. Thus, you will see gradual and long-lasting change in your dog as he/she develops a relationship with us and the rest of our pack.
Finally, we LOVE herding dogs like AUSSIES AND BORDER COLLIES--they will get lots of exercise here, and trips to an associated training facility for Agility and Obedience competition is also an option.
Extra notes: If you have a horse needing grooming, lunging exercise, riding, or just socialization, please let us know! We also love parrots and had one for years.
We look forward to meeting you and your animal friends soon!
