DOG STAY Obedience

Is your dog having more fun in your home than everyone else in the famliy? Is your couch shredded? Maybe his morning is complete only after he’s pulled your wife down the street a time or two. Once the front door is open, forget about it. Come when called? You’ve got to be kidding. The games have begun.
