At dogIDs, we recognize the importance of the bond between pet and human. We believe in improving the lives of dogs because we know the kind of difference that they can make in our lives.
My puppy Remy somehow made it through his basic obedience class last week. (He’s quite a handful!)
One unique thing about this training class was the instructor encouraged us all to use martingale-style collars.
