Ahhh . . . a new year. A clean slate. A chance to start over and do everything right this time.
Perhaps your new challenge comes in the form of a new dog, either a new puppy or a newly adopted rescue dog. With your new pup, perhaps it’s time to begin training. Perhaps you didn’t get a new pup, but are wanting to build on the relationship with the dog you already have
We all strive to be good pet parents, but busy schedules and competing priorities often make it hard to find time for training, exercising and bonding. But this year will be different! Consider joining one of our classes to help you become the pet parent you always wanted to be!
4 Classes Beginning THIS Week! Puppy, Tricks, Family Dog Level 1, and Family Dog Level 2.
