Much as some people may think it’s the case, dogs aren’t people. Because canines and humans evolved separately for eons before becoming best friends, our minds and bodies function very differently. When we try to impose our instinctive behavior on our four-legged companions, the result can be confusion, or in some cases, outright hostility.
Dogs certainly have different personalities, but sometimes people go overboard in ascribing human traits and characteristics to their pets. We can usually tell when our pets are happy or sad or bored, but is it really possible to know our pet’s outlook on life? Does your dog look at its bowl as half empty, or half full? A recent article in the Washington Post suggests that different animals may, indeed, see the world differently.
Besides acting like an I.D. bracelet for your dog, the collar and its companion, the leash, are the most important tools you have for walking and training your dog. So what collar is best for your dog? It depends on the breed, size, temperament, and health of your pet and the activity in which you’ll be using it. Let’s look at some different types and talk about what they are best suited for.

You may drop off your dog in the morning and it can participate in daycare for a half day. Half days are $12. Your dog will then go down to be groomed between 12 and 2 and we will call you when they are done.
You may drop off your dog in the morning and pick up in the evening. Your dog will be groomed and taken out for a couple of potty breaks but will otherwise stay in the grooming salon.
