Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
According to Civic Economics’ 2012 survey of local businesses, 48 cents of every dollar spent at a locally owned retail business goes back into the local community—more than three times the amount that local economies recover from chain retailers. Small, independent businesses also offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. Additionally, small local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s net new jobs over the past 17 years, according to the US Small Business Administration.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.
Sublime K9 Dog Training
Nationally certified dog trainer Jessica Freedman doesn't believe in a cure-all for disobedient dogs. Having graduated from National K-9 Learning Center, where she was introduced to an array of obedience-training techniques, she knows you have to treat each dog on a case-by-case basis.
That's why, at Sublime K9 Dog Training, before a "sit" or a "stay" or a "file the taxes" is uttered, she schedules a complimentary evaluation. Using the info from the evaluation, she tailors a plan that suits both the dog and the family. Her services range from alleviating puppies' separation anxiety to teaching older dogs who have gotten behind the learning curve.
Her knowledge of canines also shows during her bite-prevention classes. In them, she teaches kids how to read canine body language in order to prevent bites.
