Does your dog cringe at the sight of nail cutters? Are your dogs nails too long just because you dread the thought of fighting with them or are you afraid of cutting the nail too short? Most dogs view nail trimming as an uncomfortable, stressful experience. Many dogs end up with overgrown nails because their owners don’t know how to handle a dog during a nail trim or are afraid to cutting the nails too short. Letting your dogs nails grow can result in painful ingrown nails. Elongated nails affect the comfort and health of dogs. Some dogs will find it difficult to place their full body weight on their feet with discomfort from elongated nails. As a result these dogs develop sore feet, legs and hips and overall discomfort. Just to walk can then be a painful experience for them. This can be avoided by having your dogs nails trimmed once every 4 weeks (as needed). Our goal is to work with your dog to turn the dreaded nail trim into a calming, relaxed experience using gentle, patient methods. We offer basic nail trims and full Pawdicure service (includes a nail trim, feet scissored & a pad moisturizing balm applied). Prices: Nail Trim $10 + tax Pawdicure Service $20 + tax

Obedience Training | Countryside Canines

When in a class setting, it’s hard for an instructor to accurately monitor everyone’s timing, but in a private setting the instructor can pinpoint where you are going wrong and show you how to improve the technique. Having an instructor come to your home, we can customize a program that will address current issues that you are experiencing with your dog as well as meet long term goals.
