Geno Can Press the Staples “Easy” Button

After just a few short 15-minute sessions, Geno can press the Staples “Easy” button. It’s called “shaping” behavior.  Does your dog have a behavior you would like to change? Does your dog jump up? Let’s shape that behavior into a “sit pretty.” Does your dog paw at you? We can shape that into a “high five.” Do you want your dog to go to their bed or crate with a simple command? Or do you just want your dog to learn a cool trick like touching the Staples “Easy” button? Give us a call and talk to Debbie about setting up an appointment. 850-274-5710

Leash Walking a Cat

You  have noticed your cat transfixed at the window. She watches the clouds and birds wander by. Increasingly, cats and their companions are going outside to play together. Have a look at these two articles about how to train your cat to walk on a leash, featuring Jackson Galaxy of My Cat from Hell fame. I also included a link to another article about a cat who was successfully trained to walk on a leash and now goes on adventures with her family in Sweden! That cat is also seriously cute, my heart melted with the picture of her hiding in a log 😀

New Playground Equipment

Hello everyone!

We have new playground equipment built by our family friend Jeff Heller. He did an excellent job and we now have a better way to train for dog agility, and a way to have even more fun! You can see a demonstration on our youtube channel. Dr. Blount is kicking around the idea of offering expanded services so that people can sign up to use our equipment for a monthly membership fee, so that is in the works.
