Pet Tip of the Month - June

The nights are getting longer and everyone is staying out to visit friends, including your dog.  After a winter in the house though, your beloved four-legged furry friend may be not as social as they usually are.  This is a cry for help from your dog.  You may need to contact a trainer and work on your dog's social skills before something serious happens.  

If things escalate, there could be severe injuries to one or both dogs, or even an owner who tries to intervene.  Don't end up with fines, and a "Dangerous Dog Label", make your dog one of the crowd.  There's help out there, just a call away.
