CREATING HAPPY PETS AND HUMANS WITH POSITIVE TRAINING THAT WORKS!

 

Announcement 

 

Dear Happy Paws Clients, 

 

In an effort to prepare for Hurricane Florence, we will be closing our Happy Paws training facility in order to accommodate VBSPCA storm protocols. This change is effective immediately. If you need further information about the pet safety or storm related VBSPCA operational changes, please read our latest updates here.

 

As soon as the storm is over, we will be making some changes to how we offer our Happy Paws training services, and the facility will remain closed for the month of September. These changes will allow us to shift our training focus toward the animals directly in our care and to strengthen the success of VBSPCA canine adoptions. We will continue to offer our core puppy and dog training courses, along with occasional specialty workshops, but we will discontinue all other training offerings, including our Drop and Train Service. Classes will resume in October, but the Indian River location will only be open during scheduled class times. All other training operations will be based out of the VBSPCA shelter on Holland Rd. We will be posting our new schedules soon and please check our website for updates.

 

If you have classes on your account that you have not yet redeemed, email Kate.Baldwin@vbspca.com and we will be in touch next week. 

 

Thank you for your patronage and for supporting the VBSPCA mission, and stay safe in the storm! 

 

If you have any questions, please let us know. 

 

 

Respectfully, 
The VBSPCA

We know that the work involved in having a new puppy/dog can be overwhelming, so in Day School we get the training started for you. Your dog/puppy will have training, play time, and chill-out time. The self-control they'll practice will help you build their focus for future training, whether you just want good manners or will be competing in sports like agility or obedience. We provide individualized instruction from our skilled and experienced trainers. We make sure to keep class sizes small, in order to assure quality training time and to get your dog off on the right paw.
