exercise is critical

exercise is critical
A tired dog is a happy dog

Do you want a healthy, content, well behaved dog? Exercise is the key! Every dog needs adequate daily activity not just to maintain a healthy weight, but to maintain their mental wellness too.  Lack of physical exercise and mental stimulation can lead to boredom and anxiety, both of which can cause your pooch to behave inappropriately. So if your pooch is acting out, consider increasing their daily exercise as your first step to resolving the problem.  Learn more about all of our services and get started today!

Fun, effective & all positive

Fun, effective & all positive

No negativity here!

You won’t find any prong, electric or choke collars here! Pooch Partners believes in positive training and uses clicker training, a proven effective and fun training method.  We give our dogs the time they need to actually learn the desired behaviour.  It’s okay to be pessimistic, once you understand and actually see how clicker training works you will never use traditional training methods again.  Clicker training does take patience, but it is worth it!  When your dog “gets it” there is no stopping what you can teach them to do!

Tired dog = happy dog = happy you! We can help make it happen!
