Dog Training Classes Offered

Agility Classes

Dog Agility is the king of dog sports and often referred to as the most fun a dog can have – leaping over a variety of jumps, tipping a see-saw, zig zagging through a series of upright poles, negotiating a narrow dog-walk or zooming through tunnels. To a dog, an agility field is a doggy amusement park. Whether you’re looking for a venue where your dog can burn off some excess energy in a safe, constructive manner, or simply want to spend some “quality time” with your dog, agility training offers amusement and challenges for both the dog and handler often turning an unruly friend into a willing and appreciative teammate!

Maisy

Adopted 2016

Maisy is doing wonderful (we kept her name since I thought it suited her). She is such a sweet-natured girl, and loves cuddles and belly rubs! She is starting to purr now when she is happy and around my boyfriend and I. The only time I’ve ever heard her meow though, was when we took her to the vet. Other than that, she doesn’t make a sound. I thought it was a little strange because I’ve always had chatty cats growing up, but I guess that’s just how Maisy is!
We could not have found a better cat to fit into our lives. Thank you so much once again.

Meet. Adopt. Love.
