Fun Stuff

Your dog deserves to have fun–and so do you!

Dog Dayz provides a variety of fun activities to help you do just that.

Yappy Hour

Yappy Hour was very popular and we would like to thank everyone that has attended hour long play sessions.  However, due to the popularity of daycare, it is just too busy for us to continue to with it.

If you think your dog would like to attend daycare and have regular playdates with other fun loving dogs, please fill out the evaluation form in the daycare section of the website.  Thank you!!

Suzanne & Willow on the e-collar

I was very apprehensive about using an e-collar but after a few lessons with Janet realized it is an extremely valuable tool. After a year of trying the positive only approach I was not getting the results I wanted with Willows aggression towards some dogs. I knew I had to do something more productive to help Willow because I wanted to keep her and other dogs safe. I soon realized when properly understood and employed e-collars can be effectively used to modify dog behaviour. I worked with Willow for a full week just using it as a positive reinforcer for commands she already knew, at her working level of 4 out of 100. When the time came to use it at a higher level for a correction of unwanted aggressive behaviour I was able to distract her and call her off. I have gone to the dog park several times with the e-collar and when Willow shows the first sign (usually a glance) of causing trouble I correct her with one tap and it’s over in a second. I immediately call her and she gets rewarded for her recall. Everyone is happy and relaxed! Using it has also improved her recall immensely when she gets into prey drive! I can now let her off leash on trails everywhere. Thank you Janet for showing us that training collars are extremely safe and effective tools!
