“To be A DogSmith, passion and caring for animals are just not enough.  To provide the level of pet care we at The DogSmith expect, pet care providers must be properly trained, and certified”.

Niki Tudge, DogSmith Founder & President

At The DogSmith, our pet care program was specifically designed to give you the peace of mind that comes from having the best of all worlds. Our Pet Care Program guarantees that your furry family members are cared for by trained and certified animal experts while you are away from home. Services range from "Daily Breaks" to "Home Alone Visits", "Canine Slumber Parties" and "Dog Romps".

The DogSmith In-Home-Pet Care Program has several key advantages over boarding a pet because we include:

  • Walks, play and individual attention lavished on the pet
  • Customized service for the individual pet
  • Home security
  • A stable, known environment for your pet
  • Pet Safety & Security

The DogSmith Pet Care Program provides professional, affordable, reliable, friendly In-Home-Pet Care and Dog Walking services as a positive, stress free alternative for customers when they have to travel without their pets. All of our pet care providers are certified Pet Care Technicians and they are insured and bonded.

The following are included in any "DogSmith Daily Break" or "DogSmith Home Alone Visit"

  • 30 minute visit to the property

  • Check windows and doors are secure

DogSmith Dog Training Board & Train Packages - Your dog can stay in the home of a Certified Dog Trainer and will receive a minimum of 2 hours training each day. The remainder of the dog’s time will be spent with the Dog Trainer managing their new and unwanted behaviors through interaction and play and enjoying a family environment.

Latch Key Dog Training - While you are on vacation a DogSmith Certified Dog Trainer can care for your dog in your home and train your dog. Alternatively a DogSmith Certified Dog Trainer can visit your home daily or on an agreed schedule to train your dog.

At The DogSmith Dog Training Center our methods are revolutionizing the dog training world by systematically studying the most current scientific breakthroughs from the field of Learning Theory and specifically applying them to Pet Dog Training.
