Do You have space for Behavior Programs?

    Community Behavior Outreach Seminar
 Puppy Parties and Classes
can be held in most lobbies one evening after the practice is closed. 
 Ideal space is about
10 x 15 feet.

     Puppy Day Care uses your existing kennels and runs. Puppies under 4 months of age can often be put together in a run after compatibility test and initial supervision.

     Playtime in a secured area such as a lawn is ideal but any enclosed area (e.g. with Exercise Pens and/Baby Gates) or even a large run can work.
