Max is here for day training and he is so cute, we can hardly handle it! Max has already been introduced to our cats, conquered the stairs, and had his feet played with. Max is going to be a BIG dog!

Thank you so much to everybody who came out to Aura’s birthday party! We had a blast and we feel very loved by our community. Our special girl was very tired after playing and training.

I used to do group classes, and I just didn’t like the results I saw (or lack thereof) because there’s no way I can give everybody adequate individual time and instruction in an hour, and my classes were limited to only 4 dogs! Some trainers accept 10-15 dogs to one trainer for an hour long class. 🤯 Group classes are also limited to a set curriculum, which is intended to teach obedience in a controlled environment and doesn’t address most problem behaviors, or at least not at the base the individual dog and handler team need.

Molly has been making great progress! She takes weekly private lessons supplemented with a weekly day training drop off. Molly is A LOT, a wild child, she’s extraaaaa like 🥑. As a puppy with a strong personality, she requires consistency, time to problem solve, and a controlled environment to set up successful learning. Molly has been practicing coming when called, kennel manners, settling in the house, and basic obedience skills. Molly loves to play in water and Aura is her best friend.

Birdie, Blueberry, and Maggie worked on cooperative care today! Cooperative care training prepares your dog for grooming and healthcare and teaches them to participate without conflict. A dog that is tolerant of grooming and exams creates less stress for down owners, groomers, vet staff, and the dog.

Hey Folks!

You read that correctly, we are in dire need of food donations (both cat and dog) for our community pet food pantry! 🐶 🐱

Sadly, we’ve had to turn individuals away because our cupboard is bare.

We aren’t brand specific, though we do request quality food to give out to our community’s furry friends. Any amount helps!

Also, if you’re a local business interested in hosting a food drive for our organization, email [email protected]! We love partnering with and supporting small businesses.

The hungry dogs and cats of Johnson City thank you in advance! ❤️

A little behind the scenes look at where I’ll be when I’m not working dogs… this will be my workspace for creating lesson plans, We have slowly, but surely, been turning our house into a home. Chase took over the desk upstairs, but to be fair, it was a hassle running up and down the stairs when I needed contracts printed for clients. I’ve been working off of a nightstand we got for free but finally found the perfect desk on marketplace! I love my cozy space to work and it’s so much more professional!

Goodnight from us and the dogs. We are excited for the upcoming week. 🧡

Somebody recently asked if I carried antlers… yes, I do! I just had to unpack them after our move. 😅 I unpacked these today - they are all small ($17) or medium ($23.)
These are grade A and naturally shed white tail antlers.

⭐️Super happy fourteenth birthday to the most precious and special girl!! 😍I feel so lucky to have had fourteen years with her!! An absolute gem of a dog, I could not imagine life without this sassy thing! She is the best girl a 15 year old dog lover could have gotten as a first dog to learn with. She’s just a good dog for other dogs to be around. She is friendly to everybody but especially loves puppies

I’m trying to get this resolved but texts have gone out, classes away from our home are likely not going to happen today.

💜We have to give a shoutout to Cleo for being the most improved this month! Cleo started day training with us in January at 5 months old. She had bad separation anxiety in the kennel during her breaks here that stressed her and the people and dogs around her. She was unsure of how to interact with other dogs, not bad… just kinda weird and awkward. After 13 days at day training Cleo is doing AMAZING at going into a kennel on command and staying quiet. She so waits at doorways, lays on her place dog, and comes when called. Leash skills are pretty darn good and walks have become enjoyable. She loves interactive toys because they help her keep occupied in the kennel and allow her to relax. She has also improved her communication with other dogs and her responses to their communications. Cleo loves training for food, playtime with other dogs, snuggling, and yak cheese chews. She gets along with everybody, even our cats. Way to go, Cleo!! 👏🏼

Molly the Golden Retriever has been working on her leash skills & improving her focus. She had a super successful day full of wins during day training & then she attended a group class at pickup. She’s extraaa like avocado, but she’s making strides in the right direction. Chevy & Jaz the Beagle mixes started lessons to have better obedience and not bark on walks. These girls are 10 years old & a testament that old dogs CAN learn new tricks! They built onto the skills they learned last week & learned not to pull on the leash today. Their owner has a goal of walking them together without barking & pulling. Bernie and Howie the mixed breeds have been working on leash skills, leave-it, & focus. They graduated to walking together, & it’s starting to look really good! Bernie is blind (since birth) but it’s absolutely not a handicap for her. Stella also worked on her leash skills this week. She’s a fun Corgi who enjoys learning. She’s a super friendly girl that learns quick. Reo the Lab x Pit Bull has learned sit, down, to come when called, & leash skills. She did great under our cat’s careful supervision during her last lesson. Cats can be pretty distracting, but Reo has a good relationship with her people & was committed to staying focused. Daisy & Troy the Lab mixes have also been fine-tuning their leash skills, staying focused & not pulling on the leash. Their owner has a goal of walking them together & they are so close! Daisy’s leash skills are perfect, however Troy still gets distracted but I’m excited to see how he does with more practice. Wilbur the Miniature Schnauzer has been such a well-behaved gentleman in lessons. He has been working on greeting other people and dogs, advanced leash skills, & waiting in a sit or down to be released. Our demo dog, Snafu the Belgian Malinois, has been on his best behavior in lessons & a really great asset to our them. I am really grateful to have such a perfect dog to work with, he’s been giving his best in everything I ask of him & our hard work together is paying off. I am excited to get back into dog sports with him this summer.

This is not the type of content I typically post, just because everybody who’s not a dog trainer has an opinion about dogs in muzzles, dogs that bite, and dogs that otherwise struggle. I trimmed Lola’s nails tonight and this video shows the front nails being done. This video does not show her back nails, as that was a bit more of a tussle with Lola, however I was successful in trimming all of her nails without incident. Lola completed a board and train in December. She has bitten people before and tried to bite me tonight in protest of her nails being trimmed. I am quick to react and take preventive measures to keep myself and Lola safe. Nail trims are an essential part of life. Lola’s nails were painfully long, I cut 1/4”-1/2” from each of them. The only tools I used to complete Lola’s nail trim were a slip lead, a bite proof muzzle, and nail trimmers. She was not sedated nor was she given any calming supplements. Lola has come a long way, building up trust with me, but overall she is not a trusting dog as she was purchased from an Amish puppy mill at 8 months old and was not socialized. I did put a bit more pressure on Lola during this stay with me, as she has worked very hard on trusting humans with her owners dedication. Lola is fearful and frustrated trying to navigate a world she’s inexperienced in. Compassion, patience, clarity, and consistency have gone a long way for Lola.
