I had the opportunity to meet with Teena Patel, the owner of University of Doglando, a unique dog enrichment facility located on the east side of Orlando. The mission behind Doglando is to create a society where well behaved dogs are the norm and not the exception. In order to make this happen Doglando creates a structured, caring and non-arousing environment. While I was overlooking their 3.5 acres of fenced in dog runs and play areas I was in awe as I listened to how quiet the environment was as we approached the play area. All dogs enrolled at the University of Doglando play outside in the fresh air, rain or shine, all the while under the watchful eye of experienced Doglando staff members. The reason I was in awe? Because none of these dogs were barking at me or each other, they were just enjoying their play time with other dogs both big and small.
Doglando is not your typical dog day care facility, they require a commitment from both the dog and his human guardian. If you want your dog to be a trained and well behaved dog in society then this is the place for you. No more worrying about how your dog will behave when you have company over to the house or spend an afternoon at the dog park. With the skills that Doglando provides both you and your dog you will be guaranteed success. Not only will you enjoy the benefits of your newly trained dog but you will also be pleasently surprised that pricing is similar to standard drop off dog day care facilities.
What makes Doglando even more likable is their association with animal rescue groups. They have created a new program called Puppy BREATH which stands for Behavior, Research, Education, Adoption, Training and Health. This program takes puppies out of shelters to groom them into becoming well behaved adult dogs over a 16 week time period. Protocols like this will help keep dogs from being returned to animal shelters due to behavioral issues.
Dont let your busy schedule keep your dog from campus life at the University of Doglando.
