pupppywithballresized-300x300Toys are great for your puppy’s development but there are some guidelines to follow.

Only have two toys down on the floor at one time.

If you have more than two, your puppy will most likely think that anything within reach is his/hers and won’t be able to recognize the difference between your stuff and his/hers.  We do recommend a variety of different toys for your puppy, but only two on the floor at once.

Also practice gently taking toys from the puppy.  Say thank you and return the object as you tell your puppy to take it.  Repeat this training task multiple times daily in multiple locations.  In fact, toy-handling exercises can be used to teach the “give” command.

If the puppy learns that something good comes when relinquishing objects, you should soon be able to handle any toy that your puppy has.  Your puppy will learn that it is okay for you to handle his/her possessions, and that you will give them back.

We took our German Shepherd, that is less than social, as a new patient. We have struggled trying to get an ear problem improved. Dr. Emily Benedict was awesome. She was patient and spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. We ended up having a minor surgery and it ended up being a little bit beyond closing time. We were never rushed by the staff. This was a much better experience for our pet and us than we were having at our last vet. This is a very nice large facility with drinks and snacks for us humans. I can highly recommend not only Dr. Benedict but the entire staff

I had a Bearded Dragon who was having trouble breathing and it was Saturday around 1:30 They were able to take my emergency in a half hour. Dr Joel sat with me and went over my Bearded Dragon's whole background and relayed new info I did not know. My dragon got oxygen and seems to be doing better. I feel if they didn't get me in that day my baby would not have made it. Thank You so much! Even tho it is 35 minutes away I may just switch to this vet because it is well worth the drive!

The employees are friendly and professional. My dogs are always well taken care of. When picking my dogs up I always receive a summary of their stay, and any problems if applicable. The facility is always clean. I am very happy with the services we have received over the years. Highly recommend.
