Play with a Purpose

Announcing the new Play With a Purpose Mini-Class!

I created this class with puppies in mind, focusing on games for 4-10 months old dogs. Really it's fitting for all ages and skills!
Play With a Purpose is a 4 week Mini-Class designed to teach owners how to get more from play then only a physical workout for the dog. 

Let's face it, we all love to play! And the exercise we all get during play is good for all of us. But unstructured play can create its own problems including the dog learning lessons we sometimes wish they didn't learn. Pick practically any game or activity out there and you can find both pros & cons for that game. It's nearly impossible for dog owners to know all the facts and develop play skills that actually set their puppy up to succeed.

That's where I come in! Over the last 30+ years I've learned a ton about playing with dogs. How I play with Azul & Belle now is nothing like how I played with my first few dogs. Now my games exercise the body, soul, and mind helping to enrich everyone's life.

The Play With a Purpose Class is designed to share my years of experience with you so that you can learn to play with your dog in ways that help you grow your relationship, learn valuable life skills, and avoid creating unnecessary problems.

The next In-Person Class begins April 25th at 6PM! 

A virtual mini-workshop will be available soon as well!

Please email me at if you'd like to be placed on the waiting list for either class.
