Day Training & Enrichment Walking

We understand that life gets busy, and sometimes long work days are necessary. This is why we offer a variety of services to help meet your dog’s needs. Have a puppy between 11 weeks and 6 months of age? Sign them up for our Puppy Excursions and let us lay a solid foundation for their social and training skills. Do you have an adolescent or adult dog that likes to drag you around? Or a dog that is reactive towards other dogs while on leash?  Sign them up for our Walk & Train, and let us do a lot of the work for you.  What about a well-trained dog that is looking for more to do while you are away at work?  Our Enrichment Walk is just the thing they are looking for! All puppies and dogs must be current on their Distemper/Parvo/Adenovirus/Rabies/Bordetella vaccinations.  Services are available within Bellingham city limits and Sudden Valley only.
