A parking garage it is!

My puppies Mama Beetz and Massimo will be 15 weeks old tomorrow. They are growing and learning everyday, slowly but surely, as they should. I do believe in and practice kind and considerate socialization two to three times per week. We sample new areas in town from hardware stores to ponds to the University. Some…

Affordable and healthy food choices for your dog

I work with a good number of dog owners that would like to feed a healthier diet but are concerned with higher costs that are often times associated with healthier food.

Puppy Classroom Trade Secret #58

When I walk into my classroom, puppies will rush at me, glob onto me, and jump up to say HI. And when I step out to demonstrate with one of these little pups, it is smooth, seamless, and moving perfection. No real hitches to speak of. Why? The reality is, with a puppy you don’t get…
