Puppy Potty Break - 6 mths & younger

Have a new member of the family in the house?  
 

This 20-min break begins with the all-important through assessment of fingers and toes on all four paws and a happy puppy demeanor.  Then, a look around for possible messes on the puppy and inside crate (or designated area, if no crate).  A quick minute to positively attempt to practice/reinforce the sit position before leashing them for a quick walk that's just long enough to take care of business.  Once back, whatever time is left will focus on a game designed for little puppy minds!
 

*A least TWO visits per scheduled day are HIGHLY recommended for a puppy's little body and a healthy schedule!

Puppy Visit - 1 year & Younger

"You just got your new puppy a few days ago, and you’re itching to take the little guy out and show him off around the neighborhood. No big deal, right? You just need to get a leash and a collar and head out the door with him in tow.
 

Not so fast."

Weiss-Roessler, Josh "How to start walking and training a puppy." Cesar's Way Achieving Balance and Harmony. 
 

This 30-min Puppy Visit will begin with the all-important assessment of fingers and toes on all paws and general pooch demeanor.  After that, delving into a body & brain stimulating game.  Then, some light collar and leash training.  If they live in an apartment and/or a city, and with leash laws, this is essential at this age range.  If time allows, a few minutes to positively learn, practice, reinforce a couple basic commands.  But, at the pace and temperament of each puppy! 

 

Depending on puppy's pace and temperament, we will go for a 10-min walk to stretch legs, expend their bountiful energy, and potty in the big exciting world.

* I am not a licensed trainer.  This simply assists in introducing your puppy to learning some basic steps to for walking on a leash calmly, confidently, and safely, as well a basic dog etiquette.

In-Home Overnight Sitting

Going out of town but want your pets to stay in their home?  Do you usually choose to board but your pet is currently undergoing a medication that calls for special attention and NO exercise?

We can come to your home for an Overnight Sitting Stay to give them special attention while you are gone.  Your pet can maintain their routine in the safety and comfort of their own home.  We will come to your home in the early evening to feed, fill water, take out, play, and cuddle with your pet. Your fur family can hang out on the couch and sleep in their bed(s).  Also, throughout the stay, your pet will experience fun games developed for brain and body stimulation.  We will spend the night at your home and depart the next morning after approximately 10 hours of care.  A midday visit can be added for an additional charge.  It's just like you were home!

Kong with Peanut Butter

Many dogs are motivated by food and KONG toys are perfect for stuffing with treats or kibble to keep dogs busy.  The key is to stuff loosely so that the food will come out of the toy easily.
