Dog Daycare Consulting, Staff Training & Seminars

Complete education  for  dog day care professionals

in the specialized area of group dog  behavior unique to doggie daycare


The responsibilities of doggy day cares are tremendous - when at your facility the dogs' future lives are in your hands. You are shaping the dogs' social behavior and the experiences they have today affect the dogs' eye view and shapes their behaviors of tomorrow.


Experiencing first hand the responsibility dog daycare facilities undertake and the impact they have on adolescent dogs and puppies, Nana does seminars, consulting and staff training for doggie daycare facilities around the country. Known for her extensive video footage,  humor in presenting, her seminars are not only practical and exceedingly informative but lively and interactive too!

Register Online Now  for  Dog Day Care: Beyond The Leash Seminar on date to be announced

Dog Day Care: Beyond The Leash is the most concise, in-depth two-day hands-on seminar to focus solely on dog behavior addressing all aspects relating to the dog daycare field.  13 CEU credit hours from CCPDT


Nana is dedicated to providing dog daycare workers with the most comprehensive education in the field specializing in the area of group dog behavior. From a unique perspective of counseling aggression cases for years and dealing with the ramifications of dogs who were under the age of three that had some sort of incident, an event traumatic or not, were attack or bitten by another dog that then became aggressive themselves as a result.  No matter what we think, whatever it is that happens to the dog, it is always from the dog's eye view – not ours. Focusing on Dog Behavior, Pack Dynamics and Staff Education, using effective techniques and dog-friendly methods promotes appropriate social behavior, prevents the creation of bullies and stops perpetuating the cycle of aggression.
