"We absolutely LOVED working with Denise and Bailee to train our dog, Maggie. They are both extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind-hearted, and reliable. By the end of our training, Maggie’s obedience and skills had improved beyond what I had hoped for. More importantly, they helped me break a ton of bad habits as a first-time dog owner, significantly improving my confidence. This duo is incredible and I’d recommend them to anyone."

  • Private Electronic Collar Lesson:

The Electronic Collar Could Save Your Dogs Life
-2 Hour Private Lesson with Bailee-

Having an electronic collar lets your dog be off leash and have the freedom they deserve but still allows you to be in full control of them. 

 

In this lesson we teach you how the electronic collar works and how to properly train your dog with it. 

We use low stimulations to create a line of  communication between you and your dog.

 

This Lesson Typically takes 2 hours. Half determining what level your dog needs to start at, how tight the collar needs to be, and then teaching your dog what to do when they feel the collar. 

The other half of the lesson is going over what the next steps are, and how to properly use it to stop bad behaviors off leash.

Training with the electronic collar is for dogs 5 months and older.

 

* We highly recommend and use the Garmin Delta XC Collar

If you participate in a lesson and follow the instructions we give you, you will have your dog totally off leash, with full control of them in 6-8 weeks in a high distractive situation. 

A follow up lesson in not required but may be recommended .

  • Dog Sitting and Walking:

Allow Your Dog To Stay In The Comfort Of Their Own Home While You Are Away

IMG_0094_edited.jpg

There’s no place like home and there are many benefits of keeping your pets home while you are away:

 

-Your Dog Is Used To a Routine, and they thrive on consistency. Keeping your dog on his or routine and keeping them comfortable is my biggest goal. 

 

-Less Exposure To Health Risks, In a Kennel environment dogs can pickup many contagious diseases like Kennel Cough or Parvo. I always spray my shoes with Cleaner before and after going to a Clients House. 

 

-Leaving Your Dog In An Unfamiliar Place May Cause Stress. They are already stressed you’re gone. Changing their environment may stress them out even more. I recommend leaving a blanket that smells like you if you’re going to be gone for more than a few days. 

 

-Your Dog Is Getting More Social Interaction, And Exercise. Most boarding kennels are a small, confined space. I take the time to make sure your dog gets the mental and physical stimulation they might need.

 

-I Have Over 10 Years Of Professional Dog Sitting Experience and over 16 years of dog handling experience. (More about me and my experience is on “About Us” Page.)

All Drop In Visits Include:

-Full Care: Fresh Water, Food, Potty Time, Cleanup and Wipe Down if needed. And any other requests such as medications and treats. 

-Exercise: A Walk in your neighborhood or playful exercise in your fenced in yard. If it is pouring, extremely cold, or if your pet feels more comfortable, playtime will be inside your house.

-Relaxing Time: A few mins for your dog to settle after exercise where they will receive pets and belly rubs if wanted. 

Visits Times We Offer:

 

-Half an Hour Visit: 

Perfect for one large older dog or two small dogs about the same age. 

 

-Forty Five Minute Visit: 

A 45 minute drop in visit is perfect for 2 large dogs about the same age.  

 

-Hour Visit: 

An hour visit is perfect for high energy, young dogs that need extra mental and physical stimulation, or a family of 3 or more dogs.

Exercise activity time per visit depends on number of dogs, dog activity level, and care needs. If you have an elderly dog, I am able to sit down and spend some quality time with him or her. 

Walks and Playful Exercise are for those who are gone during the day at work, or an event, and will return in the evening.

Every Walk or Playful Exercise includes:

-Exercise: A Walk in your neighborhood, and/or playful exercise in your yard
