We have an Agility course for the summer and a Sledding path for winter.
MAKE A DAY OF IT and take your dog for a hike or snow shoe in the forest.
A bicycle ride or enjoy our chip and putt mini golf course, croquet, badminton, beach ball, ping pong, target shooting, darts, horse shoes, and bocci. Maybe our library of dog books, a hammock, hot tub or bonfire sounds more inviting.
Leave your dog in our dog run and spend the morning skiing, skating, tubing, ski-dooing, horse back riding, go carts, water slides, water skiing or simply enjoy the local art and antique shops and restaurants.
What Students Have To Say
A Fresh Set of Eyes
“Our biggest problems were as simple as pulling on the leash or jumping up when we walked in the door. This became very frustrating. Training on our own was definitely not working so we had to turn to a personal trainer in the area. Gaby really made us understand what we were doing wrong. A fresh set of eyes can often help you see what you been missing in your training.”
Socializing Was Our #1 Priority
“I took Gaby’s group training in order for my young pup to gain socialization skills which was our number one priority. Now I have a much better handle on my dog without struggle. We can even go for walks and meet other dogs; no more insecurities.”
Serious Behavioral Problems
“Our dog developed a serious behavior problem a few months after we adopted him. He starting guarding certain items such as food bowls, and he was getting aggressive when playing or even to cut his nails. We started to think we were in over our heads. The goal was to find a professional trainer who could not only fix the problem but to manage and prevent serious problems in the future.”
Rex, He Just Couldn’t Deal Anymore
“After the new addition to our family, Rex was not dealing with the changes in the household very well. By attending the classes, we were able to understand why he was acting in strange manners. He is now very loving towards the baby, they are inseparable.”

Penny-Lane goes to Board
“When we decided to go on vacation we had no idea what to do with our Penny-Lane. None of our friends or family were able to help. We were stuck and pressured for time. A friend recommended looking into Gaby’s dog boarding. The timing could not have been better. PL was well behaved and was very well taken care of.”
A Great Help for When You’re Stuck
“I took my dog to boarding when I had to book a last minute business trip. I hate to leave my buddy but I had no one to take him in so late. I had such a good experience, I would do it again if the occasion were to present itself.”
