I will forever be indebted to It’s Just a Dog Thing
“All of their experience, knowledge, patience, natural affinity with dogs & enthusiasm, took Laila(my Boxer) from a disobedient, mischievous, devious, defiant, rebellious & naughty 2 year old dog, to an amazing, cooperative, obedient, family pet. Laila would not respond when called, door dashed, was aggressive towards men & jealous of other dogs. Shawn’s attention to detail ensured that Laila thrived utilizing positive methods to address her negative behaviors. Shawn took the time to make sure our entire household had interaction with her & taught the common language used during the training. Shawn updated me on Laila’s progress with texts/videos often. I highly recommend!” ~Jen Levinson
They board dogs too!

“Spamilton” at the Douglas
Nov. 5th-Dec.31st
“Spamilton” celebrates and satirizes the Broadway blockbuster with a versatile cast of five. Marilyn Stasio of Variety mused, “Hip-hop, Broadway show tunes, Viennese waltzes – is there anything this guy can’t write? No, not ‘Hamilton’ creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, but Gerard Alessandrini, whose ingenious parody ‘Spamilton’ simultaneously salutes and sends up Miranda and his signature musical.” And Ben Brantley said “This smart, silly and often convulsively funny thesis, performed by a motor-mouthed cast that is fluent in many tongues, is the work of that eminent specialist in Broadway anatomy, pathology and gossip, Gerard Alessandrini.”
