"As a member of the veterinary community (Vet Tech) and someone who has rescued dogs over 30 years I can't say enough about what Meg and Merri have done for our dog, Nova. There is a difference between someone who can teach your dog to sit and trained professionals who can help you understand a dog's psyche, the reason WHY they do things and help you overcome them. Nova has gone from a nervous, reactive young dog to a mature adult who has confidence and knows how to behave. Meg and Merri partner with you to figure out what is best for you, and your dog, which is what every dog owner needs to ensure their dog grows up to be a confident well-behaved pup."

"I have a reactive dog who was nearly impossible to walk, since he would be lunging and barking at dogs. After working with Partners in Canine, he walks calmly and is able to focus on me when there are other dogs around. They never made me feel like a failure and taught things in chunks so it wasn’t overwhelming."

- Joslin Chidester, Phil

As we navigate these challenging times we realize how important it is to focus on health and safety. As you all know, we care deeply about your families as much as our own. We are happy to adapt and change in order to continue to be the best thing to happen to your dog since you! 

For the time being we will be conducting all of our services in consideration of not spreading the virus. This means that our studio will only be open by appointment only, so that we may practice Social Distancing and have the opportunity to sanitize the facility before and after your visit. 

With that being said, there has never been a better time to be with your dog! Your dog LOVES all this extra time you have to spend with them and theres never been a better time to help them be the best version of themselves they can be!

With Love,

Merri and Meg
