Our carefully designed living and working areas offer your dog a beautiful home to stay in as well as a pleasant place for you to meet with your trainer and work with your dog. We're easily accessible in Burleson, just south of Fort Worth, near the 35 and 20 freeways.
In our home is a 570 sq. ft. quiet room just for the dogs! Clean and comfortable, this room is temperature controlled for maximum comfort. 25 sq. ft. heavy gauge runs and 16 sq. ft. pens provide a secure space for small and large dogs to unwind. This indoor space is for the safe keeping of your pet in between obedience training sessions, play time, potty breaks, and time in the home. We keep them busy! Cozy crates/kennels keep your dog secure at night and teach crate training. Soothing music sets a relaxing tone and drowns out noise that may trigger barking.
Within our 10 acres we've secured a designated play yard that is dedicated to your dog’s socialization and relaxation! There's over 2000 square feet for exercise and play. Artificial grass keeps the space clean and enjoyable. Every dog receives supervised play time at least 4 times a day, 7 days a week, with other dogs whenever possible (for safety reasons, off-leash time with other dogs is not guaranteed).
In addition to off-leash socialization, all dogs work on-leash around other on-leash dogs for distraction practice and to teach proper walking etiquette.
The sitting room offers a comfortable place for you and includes a coffee station and snacks. Yum! It's here that Heidi will conduct your intake consultation and where either of us, EJ or Heidi, will meet with you at the beginning of your checkout lesson to talk things through and watch your dog's video.
We also use this space, along with other areas of the home, to help your dog learn proper indoor manners, such as not getting on the furniture, staying off tables and counters, holding a Place command, not jumping on our kids or chasing our cats, and walking out the front door without permission.
Your dog will train both indoors and outdoors. We want your dog to respond to your authority regardless of location or distractions. We offer practical experience in obedience commands, house manners, and distractions. There's plenty of room to host lessons entirely indoors when necessary.
Cleanliness is taken very seriously! We take the extra time daily to ensure that the yard and home are clean, sanitary, and aesthetically appealing. We want you to feel comfortable and for your dog to stay healthy while in our care. A non-toxic biodegradable enzymatic spray is applied to the artificial grass and concrete patio to control bacteria and odors. Though safe for use around pets, this spray is applied at night, after the last play time, to ensure maximum safety. We use Simple Green Outdoor Odor Eliminator and recommend it to our clients! Additional health measures include required proof of vaccinations and flea control for all dogs.
Dogs are grouped with compatible playmates. We vigilantly supervise all play time to ensure safety and fun for all, as well as teaching of good behavior. Our rules:
