Dogs must learn to obey their masters, or they will never follow such common commands as "sit" and "show me the value of life through years of companionship." Learn from each other with this Groupon.
$49 for a Private Dog-Training Session ($99 Value)
With a proprietary technique that relies on dogs’ natural respect for leadership rather than incentivizing good behavior with food, the trainer reinforces positive behavior during each 60-minute training session. The personalized session is catered to the needs of the dog and owner, and can focus on anything from basic commands to behavioral problems.
Husband-and-wife duo David and Heather Murphy have made a loving, multi-species family out of their five dogs and three children. The Murphys also encourage dogs to network with other dogs at their doggie daycamp, Texas Doghouse. Home to social, group-style dog daycare, the daycamp helps dogs bond through unstructured playtime and games of no-rules Marco Polo in the wading pools. Human attendants oversee the proceedings, doling out food and filtered water and administering necessary meds.
Dogs can stay at the doggie daycamp overnight, too, following their day of daycare with a night in a cozy bunk. Outside of boarding and daycare, the daycamp’s veteran trainer, Sammi Jo Stohler, can also teach pups how to cohabit with humans or how to avoid snakes.
