Let's have some fun!
Play is the way!
“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.”
– Charles Schaefer
Play like no one's watching.
Shy dogs, bold dogs, crazy dogs, young dogs, old dogs, out of control dogs, fast dogs, and slow dogs – every dog can learn to become their best self through the power of play.
Sometimes the relationship with our dogs becomes strained through struggles like chasing, poor recall, overexcitement, fearfulness or reactivity.
Our games-based approach addresses these struggles by building a strong relationship of trust and communication to improve confidence and reliability and bring back the joy of living with a canine companion.
Brain games, nose games, herding games, agility or tricks — there’s a game for every dog and human team.
Come discover your dog’s incredible talents and find out how truly amazing she really is.
“The opposite of play is not work. It’s depression.”
- Brian Sutton-Smith

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.”
– Carl Jung
Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.”
“Scientists have recently determined that it takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain – unless it is done with play, in which case, it takes between 10 and 20 repetitions!”
– Dr. Karyn Purvis

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old;
we grow old because we stop playing.”
