Let's Go For a Walk

During our walks with your dog we will strive to give them the best possible outing, enrich their day, and even help train for polite leash walking.

Benefits for Daily Dog Walking:
We'll help train your dog how to walk politely without harsh pulling, making walks more enjoyable. The great perk about this is adding a little training to your dogs walk makes it even more enriching and stimulating.

Walks provide your dog with exercise, mental stimulation, socialization, and can help relieve problem behaviors that can occur when your dog is alone or bored for long periods of time.

You are relieved from guilt, worrying about your dog being cooped up or home alone.

​​Every walk we do is for your dog. It is your dogs time to enjoy, and we will guide and supervise them while they have fun! Let us make your dogs day, while we take one more thing off your to-do list!

Our Training Philosophy

We train dogs using modern scientific techniques to understand, address, and modify dog behavior. We know that behavior only exists when it is rewarded, and therefore we use positive reinforcement, and clicker training, to train dogs what we would like them do, increasing the likelihood that the wanted behavior will happen again.

Kay Rutland, our lead dog trainer, loves helping people learn how to communicate with their furry family members. Part of what she loves doing is giving her clients the skills to train their dogs for their lifetime. With a little time and coaching, Kay can get you all on the same page, and well on your way to a great family dog.

We will make training easy with our Day Training Packages!

We work hard to make training easy for you. We understand that you have busy lives, so let us do the leg work in your dogs training journey! We are the experts after all! We will train your dog while you go about your usual lives, teaching them the manners they need to be the perfect family dog. If you struggle to get your dog to respond to you, or have issues with your puppies house training, or your dog struggles to meet people politely, we can fix those things for you, then give you the right tools and techniques to communicate with your dog in the way he or she understands.
