Gus Update

Gus has come to the end of his training. He has completed my Basic Obedience program with a few extra requests from his family.  He goes home tomorrow & I can't wait to teach his family how to follow through with all of Gus' new skills!  
Gus can now ride in the car without interfering with the driver or passenger. He rides quietly and well mannered.

Gus holding his "place" command at the barn.  He will need to do this every Saturday while his mom & dad are working!  Barn dog, Shiloh is giving it all his effort to get Gus to come play :-)


This little fella is Otis. He is an almost 5 month old Goldendoodle that is here to learn my Advanced Obedience Program.  Over the last 4 training days he has learned his sit-stay, down-stay, heel with an auto-sit, place command, & he has learned what "no" means.  He is one of those fun loving, crazy pups that likes to jump on everyone , put everything in his mouth & go 100 mph through the house!  He has made tons of progress in a very short period.  He has a little bit of a stubborn side when his friends are around.  Keep up with Otis & his progress as his program progresses!

Gus has been doing well over the last few days learning all his basic obedience commands along with the place command.  Today it's pretty darn cold so we are doing some distraction proofing at home. Here is a little of what Gus has been working on.

"oooh Mrs. Ashleigh.......dis is berry hard"

I went around the corner & watched from the screen of my phone

And then down the hall. He did excellent!

I think they're buds

This silly guy is Gus. He will be with me for the next week for Basic Obedience.  He can be a little intrusive to your space and doesn't always mind his manners.  Stay tuned for updates on Gus!
Thanks for the pic Joe

~~~~~ BOARDING ~~~~~

Boarding can be a very stressful time for both your dog & owner.  I offer in home boarding where your dog gets to stay with me in my home just as one of my dogs would!!  We love our clients like they are our own dogs so whether your dog just needs to stay while you're away or if they are here for training we offer not just structure & discipline but the comfort & lots of furry friends to play with!  Your dog will be kenneled when unsupervised, for meal time, & bed time. We ask that you supply your dog's food so there aren't any upset tummies and a copy of your dog's annual vaccinations. I supply beds, bowls, toys & love!
Kitchen prep area
Our large runs are great for multi-pet families

Our elevated dog beds (provided by Berker's Beds) are comfy & clean

 When your dog isn't enjoying the comfort of their kennel they get to enjoy the comforts of being "at home" and for playtime we have a safe, fenced 1 acre dog yard with a doggie pool!! (open summer only).  For more information on boarding rates, scheduling or general questions please contact
