My first Irish terrier died at a local kennel so when I was ready to find a place that offered boarding and training, my research was extensive.  After visiting and meeting the staff at DDG, witnessing their training techniques, and seeing their incredible play and training yards, I knew that this was the place for Riley.  Riley, my 4.5 year old Irish terrier, first experienced DDG when she was 11 months old.  She attended the Doggie Camp, a much needed training behavior approach.  She is now a Daycare attendee and often left for long term Boarding.  Kind and caring staff from the owners on up to the trainers and support staff offer knowledgeable and caring training.  There is a true bonding with the dogs.  The common sense approach to the training is consistent and humane and adds a calmness to all the dogs there. I also noticed that the dogs, due to their calm state, seem to teach acceptance and approval to the newer dogs.  One cannot help but notice the quiet atmosphere with 20+ dogs out in the training yard. No hysterical barking, no manifestations of anxiety, but a constant reassurance and encouragement from the trainers.  There is no other place I will leave Riley.  Kudos to DDG for running such a fine place for pets.
