Teaching Tug

Teaching tug to puppies allows a way to exercise your pup while you sit on the couch!     

First, get a rope toy or other long safe toy that your pup may like. You should be able to hold the toy about a foot away from your pup’s mouth.

Your Pet's First Visit

We are so excited to meet your dog or cat, puppy or kitten and would like to make their first visit as happy as possible. So let’s discuss what we can do together.

First, gather any records you may have for your pet, any medications your pet takes, and note exactly what foods and treats your pet routinely eats (a photo on your phone is great for this.) Bring as much of this as you can with you. Don’t worry if that is not possible, we will figure it out.
