Animals can just be pets, or they can be companions and partners for life. Downstay's Holistic Animal Training is the next step beyond positive reinforcement and clicker training. It's about teamwork, relationship-building, and trust. Challenges become labors of love. Unwanted behavior becomes communication and mutual understanding.
We offer a variety of custom and one-of-a-kind training, exercise, therapeutic, and other services for companion animals and their human friends.
We have a number of unique daycare and boarding options for dogs who need a little extra attention and care.
Shelters for families fleeing domestic violence rarely accept pets, meaning that these important family members may be left behind or even prevent a victim from making the decision to leave. We offer a safe, confidential solution. A portion of all of our profits go to supporting our HomeSafe project.
In our articles you can read our recommendations and join us as we reflect on human and animal relationships.
This is our running list of training tools and other resources that we've reviewed and endorsed.
