Dogs have been a vital part of my life for a very very long time. I’ve been involved with dog rescue (horses too!) and adoption for many years, and used my dog training expertise to help these frightened, tossed-away dogs gently reintegrate into environments where they would be cared for and loved for the rest of their life. I coordinated with shelters to teach their shelter dogs what would be expected of them in a forever home. That helped tremendously in making the adoptions “stick”. And, if you have a recently adopted shelter dog, ask for a Custom Quote.
To me, caring and training for dogs is one of the easiest and best ways to have fun and make a difference for those dogs! Making a difference in the lives of dogs and their people is my driving passion…It’s so important that I offer the option of training for your dog while they stay with me. Sometimes the most annoying things dogs do, like jumping, barking excessively, pulling on a leash, are some of the easiest to fix.
Senior dogs often have a difficult time in boarding situations. When they come here, though, they will absolutely love the comforts and care they will find....cozy, soft blankets and doggie beds. Toys and soft chewy things. Help to get up on the sofa, if they choose, and help to get back down. And all the extra sensitivities that Senior dogs may have will be cared for. Seniors have provided their people with their unconditional love for many years, so they get that back here, just as they do at your home.
Currently, I have three marvelous rescue dogs who enjoy meeting and romping with our guest dogs. They also teach them some of the cool things they know, like which couch they can jump on, which door we go out to potty and which door we go out for walks. Both doors are exciting…but walks usually get the happiest wide doggie face grins! Dogs are great learners by watching how other dogs do stuff. How cool is that! I love teaching my dogs (and yours, if you choose) by way of playing games….we all learn better when we have fun doing what we’re doing.
Some of the cool things we will do includes agility games, ball tossing and retrieving, hide n seek and more. Weather and crowds permitting, there are walks along the beach and chasing the waves and other cool stuff. I’ll keep your dog on his or her regular schedule of feeding, exercise and play. Your dog will thank you because she will be calmer and happier. That’s a pure joy!
