Meet Roscoe, one of our favorite Cocker Spaniel clients. Roscoe is almost 11 years old, suffers hip pain and is on medication. When his owner, Lisa, brings him in for his regular spa visits, she normally holds him while his nails are being trimmed, to help reduce the stress in his hips due to standing on the grooming table on three legs while one paw is being worked on at a time. This visit we tried a new system that gently supported Roscoe’s weight, and what a difference it made! Roscoe seemed more relaxed which made his nail trim much faster. Thank you, Lisa and Roscoe, for allowing us to improve Roscoe’s grooming experience.

We feel that every dog in our daycare program is a Lucky Dog! However, during the month of March, we pull out the green carpet for our 4 legged guests. Our daycare leaders have put together full month of fun events and activities. Don't let your dog miss out!

We are so proud of Shannon, Tina, Addie & Kyle, our Daycare Leaders for completing the, "Knowing Dogs 201 - Group Play" training series, developed by Robin Bennett and Susan Briggs. The 8-week (module) program taught our Daycare leaders how to recognize the early warning signs of inappropriate play behaviors and how to take action to keep play fun and safe for each dog in our daycare program.
