As a dog trainer and pet sitter I provide the highest quality care for my doggie guests on walks, sleep overs and in training sessions.
When I moved to Maine my first dog was a Rottweiler named Benson. When Benson was a pup, I tried several trainers and was never comfortable with the advice she was given. I thought there had to be a better way with out the use of punishment and force.
A few years later we adopted a sweet and crazy boxer named Tyson. Tyson came with a box full of behavioral issues. That is when my passion for dogs, dog behavior and nutrition brought me into the world of dog training.
In 2003 I moved my passion for dogs into the world of rescue. As a volunteer I am the Adoptions Coordinator for several rescues, I also do temperament evaluations on incoming dogs, I participate in fundraising/adoption/education days, and am active on the Board of Directors. Through rescue I took on some of the more difficult fosters who needed behavioral help.
In 2008, I started developing my training skills and looked into the different available options to working with dogs. I was in the process of deciding wether I would start a dog daycare or dive right into becoming a full time dog trainer. So while studying to become a dog trainer I decided to take a job at a local dog daycare to see how much was involved in running a dog daycare. That is when I decided there was a real need for training, especially in a daycare setting.
We provide a wonderful combination of training, nutrition and pet care. We use reward based training methods with our clients in an effort to develop a close bond with their dogs during training.
We offer boarding in a home environment for dogs that are good with other dogs and cats. They will spend the night in our home where they get to be a part of our day to day activities. We go on daily walks/hikes in the woods near our home to a nice beachy area.
Contact us today to see if your pup is a good fit for our services!
