WHY TEACH A DOG TO FIND SMELLS WHEN HE DOES THAT NATURALLY?!?

Why teach a dog to “Find It.” Legitimate question.  A dog can find a treat no bigger than a pencil eraser and a shred of cheese on the floor is easy. So why on earth would we have a training class called SNIFF IT? As a beagle owner, I have dogs that are born to […]

Winter Is Perfect for Dogs…at indoor daycare

Post Image

One of Grandma’s daycare parents can’t understand why we aren’t overflowing with dogs when the weather is so awful outside. It does seem that dogs would be happier and perhaps even safer here.

Over the river and through the woods…

dog licks grandma's mouth

What does the word grandma mean to you? We named our business Grandma’s because to us it means security, love, fun – and cookies! Grandma is the person who holds you on her lap and tells you that you are the goodest, sweetest, prettiest, smartest and very best child in the whole wide world. That’s […]

Everything You Need To Know About Mounting

Post Image

Okay, so let’s talk about mounting. My first thought is to say, “Get over it!” Not to the dogs. To the humans. It may mean something to you. Well, I know it does because I see people get so embarrassed when their dogs do it. But it’s a dog thing. And you need to let them […]

Household Items Make Great Toys!

HOUSEHOLD ITEMS MAKE GREAT TOYS Dutch likes the orange pig but not the white one. She also likes the basketball that has been chewed to half size. Every week I learn something new about toys from the dogs in daycare. I observe the toys they pick from the toy box – the ones they like […]
