Introducing DOGA!

Doga is a relaxing and calming way to create a stronger bond with your furry best friend. There are many benefits beyond the human/dog experience though, such are improving a dog’s circulation, aiding in stress reduction, a method to calm and sooth a hyperactive dog and helping to provide a gentle form of exercise for our pudgy pups. Sign up for this NEW CLASS and feel more connected with your dog!
