Excercise, Discipline and Love (in that order) are the first things I teach owners during puppy or dog training classes.

What does this mean? 

A tired dog is a happy dog and only you know how much walking or running your dog needs.  Discipline - they should know the basics - place, break, stay, sit, heel, slow, out and no.  A dog that doesn't obey will lead to frustration and stress. Petting and giving unearned affection will train your dog to behave however they want because they know they will get affection from you regardless, so why should they listen.  Your dog doesn't know or understand your house rules, so you have to teach them.  Once they learn, you will have a well-rounded life companion that will lower your stress and give you unconditional love.

Read our blog post on How Much Work Is a Dog Really? to find out more.


Read our blog post on why grooming is so important to your dog's health. As an expert, I love grooming because it let's you check your dog for anything unusual or different. This means you can catch problems such as ticks, fleas, or infections at the early stage. This can save you a lot of worry and money because most issues are easier to treat before they become serious!

"New Approach is a wonderful place to leave your pet. With leaving my puppy during the day I know I don't have any worries and this gives her an opportunity to socialize with other dogs which is extremely important for development. Mike handles all the dogs with care and I love the way he interacts with all the animals in his care."

Happy Dogs

These three components are the perfect formula for a healthy and happy dog. Training is important not just for discipline but also to help strengthen the bond between you and your dog by establishing boundaries. Daycare keeps your dog well exercised but more importantly keeps him/her socialized. Grooming is not just about aesthetics. More importantly, a good groomer may recognize things like skin conditions or suspicious lumps and bumps

Together these components are the key to your dogs success.
