I think that we can (finally) officially declare: SUMMER IS HERE!! No more homework, projects (we’ll not miss the late night runs to Staples for pasteboard…), or drop off/pick ups from school. And while that seems like a lot of time gained back, the truth is that sometimes summer is even busier than the school year. Mostly in fun ways, but busy nonetheless. Because we think that putting “Train the dog” at the bottom of your To Do list is never a good idea (because your dog is *always* learning – even things you don’t want him to!), we’ve put together some ways to help you get the training in that your dog needs, even when you’re short on time:
This is absolutely one of my favorite months. The kids are out of school soon, daylight is with us for a much longer time, and the cold weather should be officially behind us. Of course, June is also a time to celebrate Fathers and high-school graduates!
With summer comes a whole host of things to be aware of when it comes to taking care of your dogs.
This month we celebrate Mother’s Day, college graduations, and college kids coming home for the summer. And if that weren’t enough to be happy about, we’re also doing more outdoor classes and field trips to keep you and your dogs challenged. Our mission is for your dog to be reliably obedient, in real life situations. By taking our training ‘out and about’, we help you achieve that goal!
April is Canine Fitness Month! Dogs suffer from obesity – the most common preventable condition in the canine population. Lack of exercise and too many calories in the form of treats or improper nutrition contribute to the weight gain, as well as other factors such as breed, age, and medical conditions. Besides causing our furry friends to have sore joints, difficulty breathing, a higher risk for cancer, canine diabetes, and other diseases, obesity also shortens their lives.

On Saturday, April 1st, Mike and Coco achieved all three ORT’s; Birch, Anise, and Clove, in Nazareth, PA.He is entered soon in a trial for his NW1.
- Kim and her amazing Nose Work partner, Nadja;
- Gloria and Boomer (when he puts his mind to it, he can out-sniff the best of them)
- Gloria and Annie, who, at 16, is still up for a search or two as long as cheese is involved.
All these dogs have so much heart, and together with their handlers have become amazing scent work teams. I am so proud of all of them.
