Dog Behavior

Does your dog listen to your commands? Does your dog behave well around other people and other dogs? Have you tried getting your dog to listen and behave well, but without much success? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then you may want to consider enlisting some professional help with training your dog. Our team is here to help.

Joshua Martin has worked in dog behavior for more than 13 years, working with breeds from Rottweilers, German Shepherds, and Pit Bulls, to Terriers, Maltipoos, and Border Collies. Josh works through energy and discipline to help you and your dog find the perfect balance in your relationship. We will work through any issue you might have. We believe you should never give up on a dog because every dog deserves a healthy, balanced life.

* Due to COVID-19 we are observing some small changes in our services so that we can still offer the same quality service that you’ve grown accustomed to here at PetPals.

  1. We will still be offering Daycare/boarding with specific instructions about Pick Up/Drop Off. Please pay close attention to those requirements so we can all remain safe during this time.
  2. Training is still offered for Basic Obedience, Behavioral Modification & Advanced Canine, there are some new price points due to service changes.
  3. Temperament testing will still be observed on property, however we are currently asking that you stay outside in your vehicle while we take your pups to the test, we will be happy to share video of the property.

Doggy Day Care

Doggy day care is a great option when you have to be at the office, or away during the day or evening. We offer a caring and fun day for your dog, in a kennel free environment, where they get exercise and a chance to socialize with other dogs. This service includes walks, pick up in the morning and drop off by 5 pm. Later drop off times are available for an additional cost. We will work with you to coordinate what works best for you and your schedule.
