Dog in Farm

THE COUNTRY MUTT

Life is Better on the Farm!

We started our enrichment program for dogs in 2011 while based in Scituate Village - but the dogs have spoken and they prefer the "country" so we moved to 46 private acres in Foster, RI!  Because we live here on the property - only clients with appointments can visit our facility.  Make an appointment and come for a tour!

 

OUR SERVICES

We understand life can be busy and complicated, which is why we provide a variety of services to make things easier on you and your furry family. Take a look below to see what we offer and contact us with any questions.

REAL-WORLD TRAINING

A focused partner is possible!

Functional Obedience helps pet parents cultivate a better partnership with their dog. 


From teaching the basics to trouble shooting fear, anxiety and undesirable behavior such as "stranger-danger" - we can help!

DAYCARE & ENRICHMENT

A calmer partner is possible!

Our Day Enrichment program focuses on safety, fun, relaxation and getting out the "zoomies".  Most daily groups range from 10-20 dogs of compatible size,

temperament and play-style. 


We do not believe in a pitbull restriction - but pitties must fit all our temperament requirements like every other dog! 

Michelle is the proud owner of a fabulous pittie named Joanie (2), a hound mix named Gus (13) and 2 mixes Sasha (10) and Virgil (11).

$40/day  or $50/day with van service

BOARDING

A worry-free vacation is possible!

We work hard to make sure your dog feels comfortable and relaxed. Whether it’s their first time away from home, or they’re seasoned regulars, their well-being is central to everything we do.  Dogs play in daycare all day or get private leashed hikes and sleep well in the evening! 


Owners on premises 24/7!
