Puppy Love or Doggie Drudgery?

Dog messMeet Janice and Buster

They were perfect for each other, Buster provided Janice with unconditional love and she gave him that forever home he so longed for. However, working 40 hours a week Janice could only give Buster her fractured attention after the long day’s work. She started to limit their walks and play sessions and replaced them with treats. And sometimes it was just a quick belly rub…Janice started to feel as though she wasn’t giving Buster enough.

After a while Buster’s demeanor changed when he was left home alone. He would protest by tearing up the garbage, chewing on furniture, and wildly barking at people passing by the house. Janice became frustrated because she only wanted to do what was best for Buster. He was such a good dog, why was he so unhappy? Little did she know that help was just around the corner…

Did You Know?

  • That most puppies learn fear of new people, other animals, and surroundings when not properly socialized at an early age.
  • That a lot of destructive behaviors in the house are due to boredom and excess energy.
  • That dogs can live within a group of dogs at home, but not be well socialized with dogs outside the home.
  • That puppy mouthing and barking are behaviors that can be addressed within a group setting.

How we can help you inspire a happy, well behaved dog…

We add value to our daycamp by not only appealing to your dog’s playful side but also by incorporating an element of education.  The activities are high-energy play periods meant to expend energy while developing social skills. The lessons are fun based learning activities designed to appeal to the canine instinct of enjoying having a job and being rewarded for doing it well.

We’ll make sure that your pooch is happy and tuckered out by pick up time. You can enjoy peeking into their day and scoping out the fun they had by checking out the pictures and videos posted on FaceBook and Instagram.
