    SmartyPaws South at 4544 W. Russell Rd. is now open for classes and Doggie Day Care and Boot Camp (Day Training).

    Thank you to all the wonderful new and old friends who came out to our Grand Opening. Our Car Show and Open House was a huge success. Everyone had a great time looking at and voting for their favorite car. A special thanks to the many of you that contributed directly to the Servfice Dogs for Vets program or bid on the silent auction that went towards sponsoring a dog for a disabled veteran. Because of your generousity, we are able to train 9 more dogs for veterans in need. A big thank you for the Sin City Hot Rod Association. They not only brought the beautiful cars for the Inaugural Service Dogs and Hot Rods Car Show, but some of their members directly sponsored a dog for a veteran.

    I just wish I could have visited with each and every one of you. I hope to see you and thank you personally the next time you come to SmartyPaws.

    If you are new to the SmartyPaws family, please visit our class schedule site and sign up for a class. Classes are available for both our N Rancho location and the new W Russell location.You and your dog will have a wonderful time. Our trainers are the best in the industry.

    If you can not attend a class, send your furry child to our Doggie Day Care/ Boot Camp.

    You send children to school to be taught by qualified teachers. Your dog deserves the same professional training from one of our Boot Camp trainers. They will learn social skills, manners, and even tricks. We will do behavior modification for those dogs that need a little more attention. Boot Camp dogs go home with a "Report Card" telling you what they did during the day and how they responded to training.  Trainers will coach you on what you can do at home to help continue the dog's progress at home.

    If your furry child is just perfect, why not send them to our Day Care to play and get rid of that extra energy while you are at work or running errands. All dogs will come home tired and happy.

    Thanks again to all of you - we look forward to seeing you around SmartyPaws!
