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.

I was looking for a new vet and a friend recommended this place. I usually like "homier" places, but all of the staff were so nice and I absolutely loved the vet. They gave options without pushing to do the most expensive thing... a HUGE plus!! Got a call the next day on our doggy's blood tests.

VERY wonderful experience. They were very compassionate with our needs in a trying time with our animal and gave us many options without pushing us to do things that were not necessary. Thank You to all the staff and hoping your great success with a growing needs to help others in the way you helped us.

I had to put my dog chewy to sleep on Saturday September 14, 2019 and the doctor and staff were very nice and comforting! I'm really glad we went here. It was a very hard and difficult day but they made it a little easier. Thank you so very much!

The entire staff is friendly, professional and genuinely care about the animals and their needs. They provide a clean environment, free of clutter. The animals being boarded seem comfortable and safe. The dogs are separated from the cats.The equipment is up-to-date. They offer payment options, and have an app! WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?
