Features Overview

Many behavior and psychological challenges can be addressed with appropriate exercise, and most dogs (and humans!) need more than they currently get.  Exercise will get out that nervous energy and open the canine mind to our loving therapeutic approach to behavior modification and psychological balance.

A portion of all of our services supports Downstay's HomeSafe Program.

High-Intensity Program - $95 per session

This isn't a dog walking service, it's canine therapy.  For high-energy dogs, often food rewards are not nearly as rewarding as running, attention, play, sniffing, etc.  We'll work with you to customize our approach precisely to your training goals.  We can focus on obedience and leash manners, training self-soothing techniques for anxiety, PTSD, or reactivity, or just take a balanced approach.  Plan for your dog to rest comfortably for the rest of the day, and to take it easy the following day too.

Note: this program is not available to dogs who are not healthy enough to run, dogs who are pregnant, and females in heat.  It is also unavailable when outside temperatures are dangerous for your dog.

Moderate-Intensity Program - $95 per session

A more moderate approach is enough for some dogs, including healthy seniors, dogs with mild breathing difficulties, and smaller breeds.  We will build an exercise and training plan that covers adequate exercise, training games, and teamwork.

Note: this program is not available to dogs who are not healthy enough to run, dogs who are pregnant, and females in heat.  It is also unavailable when outside temperatures are dangerous for your dog.

Small Group Exercise - $39 per session

This option is available to dogs who need a lot of exercise, already know how to run nicely on a loose leash, and don't mind being around other leashed dogs.  An excellent option for people who want doggy care to reinforce and not undermine obedience, loyalty, and basic manners.
