Geralyn Kelly believes that the only way to train a dog is to know everything about them. After starting her dog education more than ten years ago, Geralyn has amassed canine knowledge via jobs at a pet store, a kennel, and now her own dog-behavior company. Since then, she has trained the North Carolina's first registered service greyhound, and taught a Shih Tzu how to alert her owner when his pacemaker battery is low.
Today, she leads training classes for dogs of all levels. She starts with beginning commands, such as sit and stay, ensuring dogs have figured out the fundamentals. More advanced classes teach dogs to heel and to come when called, while the therapy dog classes teach dogs the necessary skills to practice extreme patience and pass the therapy dog certification test.
Scampering through open fields of green grass to play with new friends sounds like the ideal life for most dogs. But some canines would rather stay away from the rowdiness, perhaps on a warm lap beneath a sturdy roof. The dog-loving caregivers at The Crate Escape, LLC know that different dogs have different personalities, and that's why they try their best to cater to each pup's desires. During overnight boarding and daily daycare, energetic dogs are given free rein of the facility's outdoor play area all day long, or they may retreat indoors for quiet time away from the midday heat. Dogs with smaller statures or quieter dispositions can stay inside if they'd like, or they can venture into their own designated outdoor area with the knowledge that they can come back indoors whenever they've had enough. All the while, staff members are in attendance to scratch an ear, fill a dinner bowl, and throw a frisbee to make sure their furry guests are relaxed and cared for. For overnighters, the handlers also make sure to grant the dogs a potty break first thing in the morning and before watching their nightly dog talk shows.
Pampered Pets Inn is a luxury boarding and interactive day care alternative for your dog or cat.
Our newly constructed, Tuscan inspired, 6,000 square foot facility is located on 2.25 beautiful acres. Your dogs get to romp and play for several hours every single day of the week.
In 2005, Karen McCombs left the corporate world. It was a big decision, but she had a simple reason: "I just decided I wanted to play with dogs," she says. Today, two of her sons work at the original All Wags location in Charlotte, and she and another son have headed out to open All Wags Doggie Daycare and Boarding North in Harrisburg. They've painted the 9,000 square feet of indoor play space with colorful canine murals, but there's also plenty of room outdoors for a dog to play ball, leap into kiddie pools, or plant its owner's flag on the peaks of plastic playground equipment.
The staff takes the time to get to know each dog, from their names to what they like and what they're scared of—and Karen says the dogs are excited to come in and play. She makes sure the staff ratio stays at about 10 dogs to 1 staff member during doggy daycare so that pooches get plenty of attention and exercise. Except for a two-hour rest period, the dogs are out and about the entire time, rather than being cooped up alone at home or made to sit in a cage and nibble listlessly on homework. "It's just a fun, exhausting day for [the dogs]," she says. "They go home and they're very tired." Dogs who are staying the night play with daycare dogs during the day, then retire to 4'x8' kennels with heating and cooling. To make sure everyone's safe, all supervisors are certified in pet first aid by the American Red Cross and have been endorsed by multiple doggy-sniff committees.
For Karen, working with her canine customers has been rewarding, and she knows their human owners appreciate the time she and her staff take to get to know their dogs and individuals. "Everybody's just so happy and ready to see you. It's not like that in the corporate world anymore," she says.
