It can be a little surprising to discover all the trouble your dog can get into as he grows up. Who knew they had so much energy, right? Your dog may not be dangerous or scary. He may just be goofy to the point of being annoying. Or maybe he’s just big and always moving – or little and always under foot – or loud. Oh my, the barking!

There are actually a lot of things we can do to prepare your dog for all the changes ahead. Read more about Preparing Your Dog for a Baby, tap here.
Training your own dog is not difficult. You can do it. But, some folks have tight schedules. And not everyone wants to be a hobby dog trainer. That’s okay.

What if there was someone who could take on the harder training so all you had to do was maintain that good behavior? Well, there is. The service is called Day Training.
