Is your dog shy and apprehensive around people and other dogs? We call this the “country curse.” Often dogs that live away from other people and animals need help socializing.
Each Sunday and Wednesday, we bring non-aggressive dogs together for an hour of supervised play. Owners come, too! Our Dog Sports & Fun Programs are perfect for socialization and exercise.
We have group on Wed 7:15pm, Sunday 10-11 & 11:15-12:15 for dogs 20 lbs and up.
Please enroll ahead of time.
A “Play Card” is available, which offers one free playgroup for every 5 purchased playgroups. Ask the playgroup professor about purchasing your card.

Trick training is a fun and exciting way to bond with your dog. The limits of skills your dog can learn is restricted only by the time and energy you’re willing to spend!
Tricks are not just fun and games (although they are really, really fun), but educational for both you and your dog. Trick training often involves many detailed steps; far more challenging than simple obedience skills.

I honestly can't believe the change in such a short space of time and am so so proud of her and so thankful to you Karen for making life with our dogs even more enjoyable.
