The healing power of a dog

Here is a heart warming update from the new owner of “Bundy”, the dog we were trying to urgently find a home for a few months ago.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you and your families. We hope you enjoy the holiday and have a well-deserved break. Read our Easter Newsletter for some important information, news and ideas.

Obedience for Life

We can all appreciate the importance of training our dogs to help them coexist with their human counterparts.  The pleasure of having a well-balanced and well-behaved dog in our lives can’t be overstated. You are able to share more of your life with them as they are more acceptable in everyday society, going for car rides, going to the beach or for walks, being part of our family functions, and possibly allowed inside with the family.

With all of this in mind, we offer puppy pre-school for our younger puppies (aged 8 weeks to 18 weeks) to get them started off on the right track, which is very important on many levels. read more
