Gainesville Dogs wants to be your all in one home pet care service! We offer a variety of different services to meet your pets wellness and happiness needs, from walks and play time to basic grooming and even training tutorials and sessions. Whatever your dog (or any kind of pet!) needs while you’re away we are more than happy to provide. That is why we’ve built in some amazing bundle packages to help you save money while still providing your furry friend with the best care around!
Our packages generally follow two simple rules: Schedule 3 or more services per week and save 15%, and schedule 5 or more services per week and save 20%! It’s really that simple. We have several suggested bundles for groups of services like walks, grooming, training or in home pet sitting, but we can also work with you to modify one of our existing bundles or build your own from scratch to get the perfect combination of services that you need.
Undeniably our most popular service bundles are walk bundles! We have pre-set packages such as 3 walks per week and 5 walks per week, with the timing of each walk up to you. Many people also choose to bundle walks and play time, where after a shorter walk to relieve themselves, your Pet Concierge spends your choice of time playing with your dog and their favorite toys, either indoors or outdoors! Walk bundles can also be built with transportation services for a walk out in nature or a lively trip to the dog park.
What Other Kinds of Bundles Do We Offer?
Grooming bundles are a great way to stay on top of the little things that keep your pet looking their best! Our number one grooming bundle comes with 1 bath, 1 nail trim and 2 full brushings per month, scheduled at your convenience. Feel free to mix and match grooming services as needed whether you want to schedule a few regular services across a whole month or plan a home spa day for Fido with multiple services in a day. Bundles can also be created for multiple pets! Say you need nail trims for two dogs and a cat, no problem, that will count as your three service bundle too.
Training bundles are the best way to see real and lasting positive changes in your pet’s behavior.
Our favorite training bundle starts with an Introduction to Training session with you and your pooch where one of our highly educated staff teaches you the basics of Positive Reinforcement training and helps you build a training plan for what behaviors you’d like your dog to work on.
Then you can add a number of one on one training sessions each week where we work with just your dog or both of you! Some of our training programs work best when bundled with our other services, such as bundling with walks for leash manners training and adding dog park trips to socialization training. As always, we’ll discuss your pet’s specific needs and work with you to build the perfect plan!
Any of our services can be bundled together to fit your needs and your schedule. Check out our full services list /here/ and remember, that in addition to being able to make custom bundles to save on your services, if there is a service you are looking for that you don’t see in our offerings, please ask! We’ll always do our best to provide whatever pet care services you are looking for!
We all want a perfectly well behaved dog, but where do you start? Training can be one of the most frustrating and rewarding parts of being a pet owner, it takes time and effort and can be difficult if you don’t know where to start. The staff at Gainesville Dogs have years of experience using positive reinforcement training, building behavior plans and helping both dogs and their humans have a more fun and productive experience with training.
Training is such an important part of responsible dog ownership.
Everything from simple house breaking to knowing their name, coming when you call and obeying simple commands falls under the umbrella of training and has a major impact on the quality of your life with your pet. We want everyone to feel confident in their dog’s behaviors and to be able to build amazing and lifelong bonds with their animals. Let us share our knowledge and insights with you to improve your relationship with your dog, their behavior and your day to day life together.
We firmly believe in the principles of positive reinforcement training. Sometimes called “clicker training” in the dog world, when these techniques are applied correctly and consistently they can make a world of difference for you and your pooch. The basic premise is that you want to reward a correct behavior – an idea that sounds simple but can be quite nuanced in application. But you don’t need to be afraid of diving into this complicated task alone, our amazing staff are here to help you every step of the way.
One of our most popular services is an introduction to these methods, a one hour class in your own home where your Pet Concierge will teach you all about our training philosophy, get you started on a plan for specific behaviors and walk you through the first steps of preparing you and your dog for the highest chance of success. We are available to keep working with you and your dog on your continuing training plan to help it grow and evolve to match the needs and strengths of your individual pet as they (and you) get the hang of it.
What kind of training do you need?
Are you just looking for a little help to shape or change a specific behavior? Our expert staff can certainly assist with these types of training requirements as well. We have several specific behaviors that we commonly work with including basic leash / walking manners and jumping on people. We are also able to help with desensitization training of all kinds, whether you have a dog who is shy around people or other dogs, is afraid of the car, or even the vacuum. We want every dog to have a long, happy and healthy life with as little stress as possible, and we are dedicated to working with you and your dog to make that happen!
