CORD LEARNS TO SWIM!
Cord was an 8mo Labrador Puppy who was nervous about swimming. He didn't want to get into his pool at home, and his owners knew he was missing out on a lot of fun and healthy exercise. This video documents his triumphs!
TRICK & TREAT
Tricks are a fun and engaging way to challenge your dog, keep him fit, and build a strong bond. Trick training is offered in private lessons, or can be added as an extra activity while you're on vacation and your dog is boarding with us!! It's so fun that have a dog that loves to perform!

JAYCEE THE HYPER HUSKY
SADIE THE FREAKED FOSTER

The quality is not the greatest, but I treasure this video. This is my dog, Daphne, who passed unexpectedly on 14 March, 2019. She was not only a wonderful dog, but also living proof that little dogs can do big things. Her training in obedience allowed me to include her in all areas of my life, her trick training and
