The obedience training program also begins around 8 months of age. Dogs are taught to heel, sit, stay, come and lay down with a few other commands, which make life with your pet more enjoyable. Typically, dogs will stay with us 6 to 8 weeks for this program.
We also do customized training for people with special needs. Special training might include trick dogs for TV commercials (we trained a Labrador to pull a Scott’s fertilizer spreader), dogs for outdoor training exhibitions (such as the Outdoorama and Blue Water Sport Fishing Show), and especially dogs for the physically disabled (we have trained dogs for people in wheelchairs).
The training programs run year round and can be started any time there is space available. However pleased be advised that during the summer months (May-September) these programs fill up fast. If you need your dog trained during these months, please call we in advance.
Our exercise program at SPRINGFIELD is our most popular program. I believe the action of racing off across our farmland to the pond or through the woods on one of the many trails contributes greatly to the mental well-being of our guests during their stay. It also provides a time for personal contact with our staff in a relaxed outdoor atmosphere.
Depending on the needs of the individual pet, several grooming options are available. These options include, but are not limited to, shampooing, custom cuts, brushing, dematting, hot oil treatments, flea baths and dips, medicated baths, nail trimming and ear cleaning.
PICK-UP AND DELIVERY
Our pick-up and delivery service is one of the cornerstones of our business. Our goal is to provide the best possible service at a minimal price. We provide this service along the I-94 corridor to the Grosse Pointe area on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and every day to the Port Huron Area.
As pet care professionals, we are greatly aware of the difference good quality pet food can make in the performance and general appearance of your dog or cat. At Springfield, we use only premium pet foods. We have had good experience with PURINA PRO PLAN products. Because we purchase food in large quantities, we are able to pass a considerable saving on to you and deliver it right to your door.
If you would like to try one of these foods after comparing the guaranteed analysis and price, please contact us.
