Everyone that knows me knows that I am the dog lady. No one loves dogs more than me and I have dedicated my time to learning more and more about our four legged friends. I take care of each pup like they are my own and give them just as much love! I pride myself on the extra steps I take beyond the service being provided and my ability to connect with both 4-legged and 2-legged beings :)

About Dog Training in Arlington, MA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is your dog tiny and cute as a button? They may be part of the AKC’s Toy Group. Miniature Poodles, Pugs, and Yorkies are all under the toy umbrella. They may be mini-mutts but they demand the same attention and exercise that big dogs do. A brisk walk twice a day is ideal. These pooches love a game of fetch, too!

Training Fun Fact #2:

Every dog needs to know basic commands. Having the ability (and willingness) to do what is asked is just as much about safety as it is obedience. Puppies as young as seven or eight weeks of age can learn simple commands like “sit” and “down”. Taking them for formal dog training is typically later, after vaccines are complete.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Are you the happy pet parent of a Dualanese? Developed from the Bolognese and the Havanese, this perky pooch has a long coat that will vary in texture depending on which genes are most predominant. Either way, this fluffy-coated pupper will need to trained to be patient during thegrooming of their lengthy coat.
