puppy!Both Houston Rover Oaks locations are holding a puppy workshop to address some typically puppy issues. And they’re free! But you do have to RSVP. Info below.

Did the holidays bring a new bundle of joy into your home?  New puppies are a wonderful addition….especially if they grow up to be well-mannered, obedient and social companions. Rover Oaks Pet Resort is delighted to offer a free Puppy Workshop on January 23 at both of our locations to help you and your new puppy start off on the right foot (or paw). 
The workshop will present important information on topics such as:
Successful potty training
Crate training for your puppy
Preventing or solving bad behaviors (chewing, biting, excessive barking)
When and how to begin basic obedience skills
Socialization with other dogs
Getting your puppy comfortable with grooming
The Puppy Workshop will be held at both Rover Oaks locations on January 23 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.  Most important, these workshops are free!  So don’t miss this opportunity. And you can bring a friend (or send them this email) if they have a new puppy, too.  However, please note that this workshop is only for pet owners — not your cute puppies — since some pets may not have completed the appropriate level of vaccinations.
RSVP TODAY since space is limited.  Call Rover Oaks Houston at (713) 662-2119 or Rover Oaks Katy at (281) 693-7687 and select option 4 to reach the Training Department.

I’ve worked with the trainers at the Houston location. Good experience. Visit the Rover Oaks Pet Resort web site.


I was so happy to read this story. The judge, a dog owner, sentenced a guy who threw his girlfriend’s 10-week old puppy off a third floor balcony during a fight, to five years in prison, suspended to three years with two years of probation.

Can I just say whoohoo?! It’s about time this crime was taken seriously by the courts.

Unfortunately, the little pup was severely injured and had to be euthanized. (Please don’t tell me his girlfriend is dumb enough to stay with him after that.)

In addition to being absolutely horrendous, there is a connection between animal cruelty and abuse and other crimes.
