Author: Kristin Skelton

Prep Your Pet For Vet Exams!

iStock_000015798186XSmallHave your dog become or continue to be comfortable with you touching their ears, their paws, their tail, opening their mouth and touching different parts of their body.  Think of it as a practice vet exam and include the whole family. This will help your dog’s exam with the vet go smoothly and less stressful since they’ll be familiar with being touched in those places. 

We hope these weekly training tips assist you in your training adventure. Floofins & Company head trainer, Michele Hatley, is available to create a customized training program for your dog. Visit us at to learn about training options with Floofins & Company.
