If your dog is a loved pet and part of your family, you’ll want to make sure they stay healthy and fit. Just because it is cold, icy, windy etc. outside, doesn’t mean we can’t get our dogs the exercise they need and enjoy. Lack of exercise can cause your dog to have poor endurance, unresponsiveness, and obesity.
There are many options to get your dog the exercise they need without going out in the cold weather—Treadmill Session, Fitness Session, Daycare, Trainings and more
Treadmill— A treadmill is great for indoor exercise which can be used year-round for warm-ups and conditioning for your dog. Laurie & Kevin can introduce your dog to the treadmill for a great workout (5-20 minutes depending upon the physical health and endurance of your dog). Great way to get your dog some physical exercise and mental stimulation all at the same time. Only one trip out in the cold stay for the session and then back on your way home. Once your dog has been introduced, you can schedule appts and conduct the session yourself if you choose! Individual session-$20, 10 session package-$159 or add on to your daycare or boarding stays for $10 per session or 10- day package for only $80-February Special $5 off individual sessions, $10 off packages.
Canine Conditioning Equipment is a fun and simple way to exercise your pet indoors! Most dogs will tire in 5-10 minutes, 3-4 times a week. Because you are supervising their exercise and helping to stabilize the equipment, you’ll spend some quality time with your pooch which you’ll both enjoy! It’s a great opportunity to train with positive reinforcement and strengthen the bond between human and animal companion while giving your dog a complete overall body workout. Your dog will love you for it.

PROTECT DOG PAWS IN WINTER
When the temperatures drop and snow falls, you should limit the time your dog’s paws are in snow or begin using boots to protect their paws from the cold, sharp ice, rock salt, and other harmful substances. If you choose not to use boots, make sure to thoroughly wipe down your pet’s paws and check between paws to remove any residual ice and salt, as both can lead to cracking. Your pet may also be prone to licking their paws, which can be dangerous if they ingest any chemicals used to dissolve snow.
You can use paw wax or protective balms. Once you notice any dryness, you can apply soothing paw balm. Never use lotions made for humans on your dog.
We offer several products to help aid in sore cracked paws or prevention thereof. Coconut Oil, paw balm. Come check out your options.
MAKE SURE YOUR DOGS ARE GETTING PLENTY OF WATER TO DRINK DURING THESE COLD MONTHS-THEY NEED IT TO HELP REGULATE THEIR BODY TEMPERATURE.
