Does Your Dog Need Training?
At It’s Just a Dog Thing, their experience, knowledge, patience, natural affinity with dogs & enthusiasm, can help your disobedient, mischievous, devious, defiant, rebellious & naughty dog, to an amazing, cooperative, obedient, family pet. Shawn and her teams attention to detail ensure that your dog will thrive, utilizing positive methods to address the negative behaviors. They also will take the time to make sure your entire household has interaction with the dog & is taught the common language used during the training. They board dogs too! I highly recommend!
