Good luck, Danielle!

Some of you may have noticed that our cheery daycare manager, Danielle Knight, hasn't been around for the past few weeks. Sadly for us, Danielle has accepted a paralegal job closer to home. It was a very difficult decision for Danielle to leave Gemini since she has formed so many great relationships over the years with her two- and four-legged friends, but the time was right for her to move on and put her professional training to use.

She has promised to stop by and help out when she needs a doggie fix, though, so you may see her from time to time!

We will absolutely miss Danielle's commitment to the dogs and to Gemini. There's no better "Queen of Clean" out there! ;-) Good luck, Danielle!

Have Your Next Doggie Birthday Party at Gemini Dogs!

Attention all Moms and Dads! We are now hosting doggie birthday parties! Woohoo!

Gemini Dog Deja Blu recently celebrated her first birthday with us. Deja's Mom, Nancy Basley, invited 12 of her daycare buddies and her littermate Scout to the party. They all had a great time chasing each other around the large training room and playing doggie games.

While the dogs enjoyed a special bone cake, their owners snacked on their own treats and had fun watching the dogs play. Deja received many gifts and treats and is enjoying them all. In fact, she told her Mom that she can't wait until she turns two and has another party!

If you'd like to have a party for your pooch, give us a call. Your dog will love it! More details here.

Otis takes a dip

Otis the Lab took advantage of the beautiful weather on Saturday and splashed around in the pool!

Is this the deep end?

Ahh, that's nice!

Listen up! Dogs in the Workplace

Gemini Dogs senior instructor, Carolyn Barney, was recently interviewed by on the topic of dogs in the workplace. She was joined by Bruce Blumberg and together they discussed a dog-training checklist that will help your pet become a successful team player at work. Nice job guys!

Fortunately, at Gemini Dogs, we don't have to worry about convincing our boss that bringing our dog to work is a good thing!
