Paws-itively Healthy’s behavior specialists chaperone four-legged friends mingling in their canine retreat as owners travel. Days begin around 7:30 a.m., when a staffer throws open 25- or 50-square-foot runs equipped with beds and fresh water, then leashes pooches for 2-mile walks prior to breakfast. Morning hours zoom by in choruses of gleeful yips that punctuate synchronized-swimming routines in a pond or pursuits of tennis balls indoors. After lengthy sessions socializing with other critters, calming music sung by famous mailmen encourages snoozing during a brief afternoon break. Horseplay recommences, and second walks on some days tucker out pups just in time for dinner and lights out. Anxious owners can request daily emails typed by employees or ripped from a squeaky toy’s diary, outlining pets’ daily activities along with providing an attached photo.
Shaun Froshour's decade of canine search and rescue experience made him the go-to guy when dogs needed training. Friends and clients swarmed him with requests to work on their canines' behavior problems or watch their dogs overnight. Eventually, Shaun realized he could parlay his expertise and passion for pooches into a business and decided to open the Canine Retreat and Behavior Improvement Center. Known today as Paws-itively Healthy, the center has trained and hosted hundreds of hounds of all breeds.
Froshour and his managing partner, Jill Stouffer, chaperone tail-waggers as they laze, play, and plan book-club meetings at the canine retreat. Grooming services gussy up pups with de-shedding treatments, nail trimmings, and toothbrushings, or the experienced duo can pet-sit or walk dogs as owners travel. Froshour and Stouffer call upon years of experience during obedience training to teach dogs verbal commands and hand signals including sit, stay, and vogue.
