Fall & Holiday Portraits:
Our amazing Photographer is ready to book both Fall and Holiday portrait sessions. We will provide background and portrait decor. Session includes studio time and one digital print. Can be booked during your dog’s regularly scheduled camp days or as a stand-alone appointment. 

Intro to Agility:
If you’ve always wanted to try out your dog’s athletic ability because you know they love to run, jump and play then this beginners agility obstacles class is for you. The is a beginners class just for FUN.  $130 registration. Dogs must know how to sit/stay in order to participate and be at least 8-months of age. Because some portions of the class will be off leash, your dog must also have “high handler engagement,” meaning your dog wants to stay with you instead of going to visit with other dogs working in the class. Not sure if your dog is a good fit? Ask us! 

Pet CPR & First Aid:
This half-day hands-on workshop is perfect for pet owners and pet care professionals. The training is taught by lecture, demonstration, and hands-on skill practice. The class includes a handbook and upon successful completion, each participant will receive their pet tech certification for Pet CPR and First Aid.

Bark & Brew:
Our monthly event at Lincoln’s beard brewery which is held every second Friday of the month. Come join AYP staff along with your dog and enjoy a craft beer all at the same time. 

Canine Good Citizen Exam:
The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. The 10 parts to this exam are: accepting a friendly stranger, sitting politely for petting, appearance and grooming, loose leash walking, walking through a crowd, sit, down, stay, coming when called, reaction to another dog, reaction to distraction and supervised separation. 

Outdoor Adventure Class:
This is a 3-week course out and about (on the go!) to help solidify obedience and manners in real-life situations. Each class is held at a different location. Location varies week by week. Locations include but not limited to University of Miami, Miracle Mile, Shops at Sunset Place, Merrick Park, Bayside marketplace and Lincoln Road, etc. 


*If you’re a regular customer and you haven’t yet signed up for our new client portal please reply to this email so we can send you a registration link! Our new client portal allows you to now track past and future services, as well as keep your dog’s information up to date for us to expedite boarding stays, training and daycare preferences. It’s awesome! 


* If your dog hasn’t already received the Canine Influenza vaccine we are highly recommending it. Speak to your veterinarian about the vaccine to ensure your social dog is protected against this new virus which, at some point, will affect our SFL canine community.
