I’m a family dog trainer; my training methods are “relationship based. I will teach you how to build a rewarding relationship with your adult dog or puppy and training ourselves first is the best, and only way, to start!
It is critical to establish a Behavior Foundation (behavior training) and House Rules for our dogs to add structure and calmness to their life. You will also receive a detailed training manual complete with instructional videos to guide you thru the simple daily training routines.
We had an introductory meeting with Pete. He was outstanding orienting us as new "dog parents" to caring for and training our 1 1/2 year-old rescue dog and new 4-month old puppy. He provided very helpful written material to read and videos to watch before our next session in two weeks. We cannot speak highly enough of him personally and professionally, and we look forward to working with him in the future!

Jen is as good as it gets! The first time I met her, one of the newer pups recently added to my regular group ran up to her to give her cuddles and kisses and it turns out it is because she walked her a couple of times in the past! The pup remembered Jen so fondly after only meeting her a couple of times and it was truly moving, as well as a testament to the kind of care, consideration and quality Jen provides to each pup in her care. I see her at the dog park regularly and she is always attentive, playful and interactive with her dogs. In my experience, she is professional, reliable and skilled. I have already reached out to her for coverage assistance and for referrals for clients seeking coverage I cannot accommodate. As a Dog Walking Professional myself, I am honored to have Jen as part of my network.
Furball Fitness is dedicated to the health and well-being of your beloved puppy. We specialize in dog day care, walking and pet sitting services.
Going above and beyond for my clients. To build trust and true friendship.
What inspired you to start your own business?
Founded by Sheri Villa in 2012, Furball Fitness began as a one-woman show, operated modestly by a fun-loving dog walker. Soon, the business grew into a full-service doggie daycare, opening doors to a 2000 square foot Dog Camp facility in 2017.
As a passionate dog lover, Sheri was inspired to pursue this dream, to share in her belief of providing our fur-friends the best lifestyle possible with daily exercise, socialization, and purpose; that being mental stimulation through structure and routine (light training). These are three basic needs for a dog’s wellness, all administered and paced appropriately with proper supervision.
Furball Fitness is a special environment. All dogs get individual attention both on the trail and in daycare. To maintain a low dog-to-human ratio, only 30 spots are available for reservation. This regulated attendance will ensure a calm and safe play environment. Small groups also allow for a very pleasant outdoor experience as well. You’ll know all of your caretakers personally, creating the supported, communicative, and intimate experience that is so important to us.
Why should our clients choose you?
…because Furball Fitness knows how important adequate exercise is in maintaining optimal physical and mental health for your dog. Plus, you probably don’t want your baby home alone all day, bored, and wreaking havoc in your home!Dog Exercise
What you (but mostly your dog) get(s):
Dog Camp – playtime and socialization in Furball Fitness’ 2500 sq/ft. indoor AND outdoor dog park. Fully turfed!
Adventure Hikes – stretch legs, sniff butts, and poop to your heart’s content! I know I appreciate a little bit of fresh air every day, so my guess is the dogs do too! We hike places like Point Isabel, Albany Bulb, Dimond Canyon, Leona Canyon, Wildcat Canyon, and much more!
Hands-on Training – preserve consistency in your home training by utilizing pre-established commands; in addition, fine-tune manners and other skills, like off-leash recall.
Small Play Groups – safety and comfort in keeping a maximum capacity; 8 dogs per group. Just the right amount of dogs. Just the right amount of energy. Plenty of room to roam. We’re not trying to build a doggie empire over here with hundreds of dogs circling through each day. Furball Fitness is deliberate in staying intimate with the goal of servicing each and every one of you to the best of our ability.
Lasting Friendships – experienced staff who develop a personal relationship with you and your dog. No revolving door of walkers. We’ll build trust. You’ll know your dog’s caretaker well.
No Crates – because we cap group sizes and have plenty of space, no crates are utilized. The puppies treat the indoor dog park as their own backyard – run around and rumble OR sprawl out and lounge. Cage free!
Flexible Schedules – choose any combination of days that works for your busy schedule. Morning and afternoon sessions available. Minimum 1 day per week.
All Inclusive!!! – no sneaky, a la carte charges. Your membership covers all of the fun! Daycare playtime AND adventure hikes. This is part of what makes Furball Fitness special. Elsewhere, once the dogs are in, they’re in. Here, your dog will get the best of both worlds!
How’s all that sound? Your dog is about to be living its best life!
