Therapy Dog Preparation (all ages): Therapy Dogs International is an organization that certifies dog and handler teams to visit hospitals, assisted living facilities, other institutions and wherever therapy dogs are needed. Dogs must be at least 12 months to be eligible for testing, but it is never too early to begin preparing for the required exercises. Our preparation class will walk participants through the testing requirements and provide practical instruction on training a therapy dog. This class also helps prepare for the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen test.
2nd and 4th Saturday each month 2:00-3:00
$25 each Class
Urban Agility (all ages): Urban agility is our adaptation of a traditional agility class, integrating obstacles, and treadmill training into a more compact space. Obstacle and treadmill training offer physical and mental challenges for any age or breed and help foster trust, confidence and teamwork between you and your dog. This class is open in format and no prior agility training is required. Urban agility is intended for recreation rather than competition, however attendees will learn the foundation skills for the sport.

Take a Tour...A Day at the Dog Stop
Why the Tails Wag
Why the Tails Wag
“I’ve been bringing Nico to The Dog Stop – East End location since he was 4 months old…it’s his second home! It’s so relieving to know I have a kind, trustworthy, and hardworking group of people to take care of my little pup 5 days out of the week and when I go on vacations. When I pick him up, he’s always so happy and energetic, wagging his tail and jumping to greet me! I can tell my little guy is happy there, which makes me happy. I also get Nico groomed on-site during the day at daycare, which is super convenient that I don’t have to make another trip. He always looks adorable and comes home squeaky-clean! I can’t recommend The Dog Stop enough for any of your pup’s needs!”
“We love The Dog Stop and so does Ziggie! We’ve been clients for nearly five years for daycare, boarding, and nail trims. Ziggie is always excited to get there and tired and happy when we pick him up, plus, it’s fun to look in on him throughout the day on the live stream of the daycare room. We love the staff, and more importantly, so does Ziggie! We look forward to being customers for a long time to come!”
“I have been boarding my dog, Berkley at the Dog Stop (east end) for over a year now. I work 3 days a week out of town and I bring him there to ensure that he is cared for while I’m gone. All of the staff members are warm and very accommodating. When we walk in they seem just as happy to see Berkley, as he is to be there. I never worry when he is there and I honestly will miss this place when we move! Thanks to Everyone at the Dog Stop”
“Working long hours and traveling frequently for work has its own stresses. Knowing my dog is not only being well taken care of but absolutely loves spending time with the staff and other pups, helps with the stress. Every morning as soon as we arrive at the building, Bella is out of my hands and into the doors of the building before I even notice. The fact that she is so excited to go to “camp” every day puts a smile on my face. Breck and her staff are extremely friendly, caring and professional. I cannot recommend them enough!”
“Since 2013, I’ve trusted the Dog Stop’s fantastic staff to care for my beloved Alfie. Alfie has been an overnight guest as well as a daycare regular, and it’s such a pleasure to watch him enthusiastically wag his tail when we walk through the doors! The Dog Stop’s friendly and helpful staff have gone out of their way many times to accommodate my crazy schedule, and always go the extra mile to make sure Alfie’s needs are met. The East End staff have earned my enduring trust and loyalty — thanks!”
