Is your attention-seeking dog driving you nuts?

"I can't get any work done."

Working from home isn't easy.  

There are SO many distractions, including your sweet, loving dog.

Your dog may be out of control with excitement that you are home all day to hang out with him/her. Unfortunately, as much as you LOVE your dog, you have things to do.

If you need some me-time back, Doggie Indoor Recess is the answer for you!

You and your pup need Doggie Indoor Recess

  • Doggie Indoor Recess is a 4 week program filled with exciting activities to tire out your pup, so you can get done whatever you need to do (work, laundry, cleaning, or just rest). 


  • Broken down into weekly themes, there are with 5 short videos per week for you to watch at your own pace. The videos will demonstrate a tip, skill, or activity that you can do with your dog. There’s a good mix of self-entertaining activities, as well as activities to do together.


  • Play brain games, keep your dog occupied, and have a sleepy pup.  Win-Win.

  • You love your dog.  There is no doubt about that.  You want to play with your dog all day long.


  • But, the reality is that you have responsibilities that your dog does not.  Working, cleaning, cooking...and those things are not easy with an energetic dog looking for your attention every minute of the day.


  • Doggie Indoor Recess gives you the tools to keep your dog happy and busy while you get stuff done.

Doggie Indoor Recess enables you to:

Show up BIG as a dog parent.

Be the coolest dog parent in town because your dog gets to go to play class.

Get help along the way.

Pet parenting isn't all puppies and rainbows. It's tough!  Ask questions and get support, anytime.

Bond with your dog.

Quality time with your dog matters.  A doggie class on play through targeting natural dog behaviors?   You're the best thing to ever happen to your pup. 

  • A dog needs both physical and mental exercise to tire out.  Mental exercise is called enrichment.


  • When you give a dog a puzzle, you are stimulating the mind and making your dog work! A great way to get the brains cells firing is to use food as a motivator.  When the dog really wants the delicious, tasty treat and has to figure out HOW to get it, that’s where the work begins.


  • Dogs are known for having an incredible sense of smell.  Did you know that sniffing is calming for a dog? It’s how they get information about the world.  Learning new things is fun for a pup!


Your dog learns something new.

A new puzzle, trick, or game - all super fun for a pup!

The brain gets a serious workout.

When your dog has to work hard and think about what to do, you just coached your dog through a mental marathon.

Your dog needs a nap.

Hard working brains need to rest.  Play hard, sleep well.
