I ♥ my dog (at-home brain games program)

What it's all about

For dogs who need extra stimulation or pet parents who just want the best for their dog.

  • Have a new baby at home and don’t have time for all those things you used to do with your dog?
  • Want to provide a little stimulation for your elderly dog?
  • Have a fearful dog that doesn’t do well in a commercial daycare?
  • Is stuffing puzzles just one more thing you wish you didn’t have to do in the morning?
  • Have a new puppy that needs a midday break while you are at work?
  • Are your dog’s health issues limiting his exercise opportunities?

Entertain your dog while you are at work and help stave off boredom. For many dogs, exercise alone is not enough – they also need a mental activity like problem solving.

A great supplement to a dog walking program or at the end of a day training program.

Your dog will receive a personalized enrichment plan that includes games, trick training, cuddles, and puzzles provided by a professional trainer.

Did you know that enrichment can help stave off something called Canine Cognitive Disorder (doggy Alzheimer’s)? We take enriching your dog’s life seriously at Bravo Fido.

All visits include a bathroom break and remote check in so you know how your dog is doing.

I ♥ my dog club runs Tuesday to Friday as Bravo Fido is closed on Monday.

Week 2: 2 x 1hr sessions
Week 3: 2 x 1 hr sessions

Small dog daycare

Googly’s playgroup

  • Looking to give your precious pup something special?
  • Feel guilty leaving your dog home alone all day?
  • Having a hard time finding suitable doggy friends for your small dog?

Many dogs are also not comfortable with the large groups and constantly changing companions. Your dog will experience a small group (3-4 max) of well suited companions in addition to enrichment, play, games, toys and training. A great value that includes all the benefits of the I ♥ my dog program and more!

FAQ

Do you guarantee results?

Reputable professional dog training organisations, including those we are members of, consider that it is unethical to give guarantees on behaviour. Our field experience has taught us that behaviour is modifiable but how long it will take or the level to which it can be modified cannot be accurately predicted. There are too many factors at play. Once we meet with you and determine your goals, we can give you a better idea of what to expect.

How can I pay for services?

Bravo Fido accepts cash, credit (visa/mastercard) and cheques.

Can I pay in installments?

All packages must be paid in full on the first appointment.

What is your cancellation policy?

We ask our clients to cancel at least 48 hours before their appointment. Appointments cancelled within 48 hrs will be billed.

Do you charge travel fees?

Travel fees are included in our prices (within our coverage area).
