Dog care and training made easy

It all started in 2004 when my husband and I got our first Labrador puppy as a newlywed couple. We thought we knew how to raise a dog little did we know that we had very basic knowledge. Most pet dog owners know the basics of feeding, vaccinations, but even lack the simple knowledge of the benefits of sterilization hence the problem with back yard breeding and other health and behavioural issues...

Owning a dog for a lifetime entails a lot more than just providing food, water and walks. At dog care centre we focus on force free training methods to teach your dog to be a well adjusted being in your family and coping with his environment. We also equip you with the needed know-how of how to train your own dog and make you aware of it's specific needs. We focus on basics for example teaching a dog not to bark excessively or jump on guest and chew furniture. How to teach a dog to come reliably when called or walking nicely on a loose leash.

Most dogs are annually euthanized because of unwanted behaviors, veterinary practices loose over R100 000 in income annually due to dogs being euthanized for unwanted behaviors and most of them are all training issues that humans do not how to address.

When I got my second dog Ice (Alaskan Husky) I sought professional advice and found amazing people (dog trainers, groomers and dog mushers in Alaska and Colorado) and with their guidance I studied to become a professional dog trainer, behaviour consultant and dog groomer.

I started a All breeds Sledding club focusing on Alaskan Huskies and a boarding facility for dogs, cats and bunnies. We also implemented our 3 week board and train program after I experienced the success of these programs working in the States. Our focus are on fearful and reactive behaviours and basic manners for all dog breeds of all ages.

Since then we have adopted 3 more Huskies, a Boerboel and a Bull mastiff as well as a Corgi and a Beagle. We have lost our one Siberian Husky Denali in 2014 and our Labrador Gephetto in 2015.

We strive to make all pets staying with us comfortable and relaxed and provide a stable and loving environment while your pet stays in our care. We are a smaller facility that provide optimum care and a professional service. We also provide supervised day care and walks while your dog stays at our kennels. We offer 13 spacious outside kennels that has synthetic lawn installed as well as good weather coverage. We also have a indoor cabin and a in-house option for smaller dogs and bunnies. All dogs come out regularly during the day and are not socialised with other dogs if not booked for day care or for training. We have been in the business for 9 years and have a large returning clientele.
