  •  Doggie Daycare

For a change of scenery and tons of furry friends to play with, consider taking your dog to a doggie daycare in your area. Once or twice a week will do wonders for your dog.  He’ll be worn out when he gets home and will look forward to these special trips!

  • Play Hide and Seek with Your Dog

Dogs have a natural ability to seek out their owners using sight, sound and smell. Stay indoors when the weather outside is frightful and train your dog to heed commands by playing a fun game of hide and seek. Hide yourself and then encourage your pooch to locate you.

We wish you and your pets peace, love and happiness this winter.  Prevent your little fur babies from getting the winter blues by keeping them occupied with the above ideas put together by our team.
