Play Together, Stay Together Clinic

Science has proven that how we interact with and play with our dogs creates a meaningful, positive relationship. Studies have shown a clear link between "limited playtime and animal behavior problems, such as being nervous when left alone, disobedience and snapping at other animals." Marc Bekoff, one of the leading scientists of animal play, has said, "We train too much and play too little." One of dogma's core beliefs is to foster and enhance the human-canine bond so we are proud to offer a play clinic to help accomplish this goal! Over one hour you will learn how to appropriately interact with your dog and ensure they are enjoying themselves, play a variety of games and just have fun! This is a wonderful way to get out and experience the joy of what happens when we don't take things so seriously and just enjoy our time together with our canine companions.
