Welcome to Down To Earth Dogs

A place full of “pawsitive” energy where your dog can be a dog! Whether you’re away for work, on vacation, or just need to spend some time taking care of you, Down-to-Earth Dogs can help. We specialize in doggie daycare and overnight boarding designed to provide your dog with excitement and adventure while putting your mind at ease.

Dog Daycare and Boarding

A typical stay at Down-to-Earth Dogs includes outdoor play time, pawsitive reinforcement training, structured play, meal times suited to your dogs needs, and much needed rest time. We’ll even send pictures to your email or phone with every visit, so you can see your what your dog is up to. When you pick up your dog, you can rest assured that he’s had a fun-filled; action packed stay and perhaps even learned a trick or two!

Small Group Outings

What could be more fun for your dog than an outing with his best friends? If your dog has a lot of energy or just likes to get out and be social, our group outings are just what he needs. Typical outings include trips to Fiesta Island or Fiesta Island for some hiking. Outings last for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours between the hours of 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. We’ll pick him up and drop him off when we’re done.

Private Training

Private sessions are ideal for teaching basic manners and core behaviors to a newly adopted dog or puppy, or for working through behavioral issues such as fear, aggression, reactivity and separation anxiety. For problem behaviors, an initial 2 hour consultation is required to go over your dogs behavioral history, discuss immediate management solutions and get started with initial training exercises. Follow up lessons are approximately 1 hour.

Emily Keaney

As a long time earth and animal lover, Emily Keaney, finally found her life’s calling. Recognizing the need for dog training and boarding services that matched her holistic, compassionate and environmentally friendly philosophy she opened Down to Earth Dogs in 2010.

With a soft heart for rescues, she adopted Rodney- the company mascot – and has been shaping him into a calm and well adjusted Mastiff mix. Emily’s most recent addition, Paco, is an adorable & playful Pit Bull mix from Mexico. Emily’s loving and “pawsitive” attitude create the foundation of your dog’s pleasurable experience with Down-to-Earth Dogs.
