Dogs thrive on structure and grow through enrichment.
Every dog in our care – be it for the day, week, or longer-term – receives highly structured and enriched routines of human and animal socialization, play, training, feeding and rest periods. All staff is trained to support the development of a well-mannered and psychologically balanced animal. Dogs are here to learn and ritualize proper behavior and attitude, rather than to simply be housed.
Enrichment stimulates the animal’s mind to promote learning, elevate confidence, alleviate boredom and lower stress.
Attitude is everything in a companion dog and so we design everything we teach to foster cooperation over competition from your pet. We actively work to promote cooperation between the dogs in our care and their human caregivers,
both here and at home.
We apply academic principles to promote appropriate behavior from your dog. We manage the dog’s environment to prevent inappropriate learning leading to problematic behavior.
Every stay with us works to foster a well-balanced companion dog, one that is subordinate yet confident, playful and yet more responsive to you at home.
