My name is Carol and I grew up in a house full of dogs. There were more dogs in our house than kids, and there were 4 of us. My parents were dog trainers, and their dogs, Viszla, were trained in obedience, show and field trials. While I never participated in shows I accompanied my family to all events and assisted handling the dogs. After I was on my own I used all the techniques I learned at home with my dogs. Using positive reinforcement I was able to enjoy a pack of three dogs ranging from 6 pounds to 96 pounds. They were a well behaved group in and around the kitchen and out on a neighborhood walk. I always made sure they knew that I was in charge, and in exchange we enjoyed many happy hours together.

With a few great restaurants to dine at, and some amazing parks to run through, your pup will have a great time in Dexter with you. With five veterinarians in town, your dog will be well taken care of too.

Grab a bite to eat at Aubree's Pizzeria and Grill. They have an extensive menu with a Cajun flare that your dog will be drooling over.

Their outdoor patio welcomes your four legged friend to join you while you enjoy your meal together.
