December Newsletter!
November closing marks the true end to mild days and cool nights. Now that it is December, we get to look forward to cold days and freezing nights. Some of our pooches thrive in the colder weather, while others would prefer to stay indoors. But just because the weather has turned, does not mean your dog should be cooped up in the house. Between some great jackets, doggy boots and capitalizing on the warmest part of your day, you can continue to get out and enjoy a nice walk or some community socialization. The 'winter blues' and the extra pounds that it can bring do not just effect us humans but also our pups. Be sure to keep active and have fun. 

This month, we continue to collect raffle baskets for our upcoming Drop-In Holiday Celebration! We hope that this amazing raffle draw will be a sure hit. To avoid mask removal we will be having warm beverages and goodies for you to take home with you! We will be following strict precautions while getting to enjoy at least a small part of the season. Please see our flyer below for more information and mark your calendars! Can't make it this year? Don't worry, we sell Pawlicious Chocolate Bars all year round!

We really hope to see you (from at least 6 ft away) this holiday season, but if not we wish you all the best for a fun, laughter filled and warm socially isolated holiday season!

As always, stay safe and keep those tails wagging!

To register for any of the above classes visit:
Once payment is made and the registration form has been received, we will process your class enrollment and send you an email with all of the details and class handouts.  Please note that those who submit both payment and form (payment only needed for existing students) will receive first opportunity to register.

Classes are limited in size to provide dogs and handlers with maximum learning opportunities.  Because they are limited they often fill quickly.  In the very rare case a class does not fill with the minimum number of participants (50%) we may choose to postpone, reschedule or cancel classes.  Should this occur, we will provide the option to participants to apply their class registration fee toward the postponed or rescheduled class, an alternative class or provide a full refund. 
Play Dates!

We have play dates available for young puppies up to adult dogs who are very well socialized and enjoy the company and play of other dogs. All play dates are being held at at our location located at 987 Old Highway 2 Belleville (half way between Belleville and Trenton on Highway 2, right across from Connon Nurseries).

Play mates are matched up based on a number of factors to help build your dog/puppies confidence and skills. Play dates are 30 minutes each and are just $15 taxes included, due at the play date. All dogs and puppies joining must be up to date on vaccinations in order to join the fun.

If you are new to play dates (have not yet attended one) and would like to join one (or more) of the play dates listed below, please email us at, so we can match your dog accordingly.

Please note that if you sign up for a play date and are not able to attend you must provide at least 48 hours notice so we can fill your space, otherwise our standard play date fee still applies.

Masks are required at this time and we request that a maximum of 2 persons per dog attend.

Please email us all of the dates/times that you are interested in and available for and we will be sure to match you up as best possible with other dogs/puppies that suit your dogs temperament.
