Boarding Add-Ons

Dogs that are exercised and educated make better family pets!

My dogs LOVE to train. Why? Because it’s FUN and dogs LOVE to learn!  Learning channels their energy, improves focus and self-control, builds confidence, and brings out their personality. When trained with positive methods dogs learn quickly. Positive training keeps dogs excited and motivated. Thus my vision for a boarding facility that offers fun activities providing mental and/or physical stimulation.

Activities can be paired with your dog’s personality, learning style, likes and dislikes. Just like humans, some dogs are jocks, some are braniacs, some are serious, some love water, others prefer land. Dogs have different learning styles and learn at their own pace. We understand that! Together, we can choose your dog’s preferred activity, rotate through the various activities and/or let your dog decide which they love the most.

Because we only use Positive Training Methods, dogs must be food motivated to participate in TRICKS, SCENTWORK AND/OR YOGA.

Splash

We have two brand new underwater treadmills that offer the latest in technology. Underwater treadmills combine the benefits of buoyancy which minimizes pressure through the joints while providing resistance which strengthens all of your dog’s muscles. Jets in the treadmill can provide resistance for a more challenging workout, or a relaxing whirlpool-type massage. One of our trained staff from our Rehab department will go in the underwater treadmill with your dog to be sure it is a safe, fun and a positive experience.  Dogs must be in good health.
