How Can You Support Us?

We want to say thank you to everyone that has taken the time to write us and who has supported our services the last few months. Our entire team is grateful that our doors have been able to remain open. If you are looking for ways you can continue to support us, here are some ideas.

  • Purchase a gift package for your dog and have it delivered to your home. These are great for dogs that need a little more activity while at home and includes some fun treat dispensing toys that are durable to use over and over. You will get a lot of use out of these for the life of your dog. We also sell some treats, bully sticks, and toys online we can deliver to you.
  • Purchase a gift card online to use towards future services. Share a gift card with a friend or use them to pay for future services.
  • Leave a positive review on Google, Facebook, Yelp, Angie's List, or Nextdoor. You can help refer our service to others who need us at this time, and help us rebuild any lost business when we resume full operations.

How Can We Help You?

We know everyone's life is facing new challenges and we hope some of the services below will help make your day easier and enrich your dog’s day while still following all current safety guidelines.  

Give your dog an afternoon break with our "no contact" dog walking services. Keep your dog’s routine going while you telework. Provide our office instructions specific to your home and we'll pass along to your dog walker. We can practice social distancing while still providing daily dog walks for your dog.

If your dog is a bundle of energy and tired of sitting at home watching you work all day, dog daycare is a great way to burn off some of that energy. Stay home and let us pet taxi your dog to daycare or text 77-FGMN CURB from our parking lot for curbside pick-up and drop-off without leaving your car. There is room in all of our playgroups!

*7/16/20 update* Daycare reservations are picking up. Please be sure to make a reservation in advance so we can plan ahead and adjust our staffing needs accordingly.

Has the new routine caused you to notice behaviors in your dog you’d like to work on (e.g. barking, anxiousness, constantly asking for attention).  Do you or a member of your family want to teach your dog something new? We can offer you helpful, practical advice by phone. Register for a 30 minute phone consult, online workshop, or online private sessions. Our Certified Professional Dog Trainers are here and ready to help.

Do something fun with your dog. Teach them a trick with this online course. 35 short video tutorials covering 15 behaviors including: shake, spin, go to mat (great while teleworking), ring the bell, jump through arms.  All taught by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. Online access is good for one year.

*7/16/20 update*

Rent the play area! We have temporarily been renting out our training facility on weekends 9AM-5PM while our dog training classes have been on hold. We plan to resume in person classes in August, therefore our last appointment available for renting the facility will be on Sunday, 8/2/20. This turned out to be a popular option and we may offer this again at times when we are not holding classes. Caveats during COVID: Appointments are scheduled every hour on the hour for 45 minutes of use, cost is $15. Caveats for social distancing: LIMIT TO ONE HOUSEHOLD per session, up to 2 adults, no children, face mask required. High touch surfaces are cleaned between appointments. Hand sanitizer available in the lobby. Text 77 FGMN CURB upon arrival to be let into the building. Email our office to book a time and pay online.

Group classes will resume in August for clients that were in the middle of a class when we placed classes on hold. Please check our upcoming class schedule for new classes to be realeased in September.
