Atlanta, GA, April – 2015 – Nationally recognized dog expert and certified professional dog trainer Susie Aga launches Elijsha’s Dream with the hopes that she can help make one dream at a time come true.  Elijsha’s Dream is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

Nelli and Conga teaching each other the rewards of “who can get the toy first” games.

A great way to exercise your dog is to teach it to retrieve in the water.  We have specialty trainers that can help you and your dog in our luxurious 52 foot dog pool.

Swimming with your dog is one of the most relaxing bonding experiences you will ever have.


 Susie’s Tips 

Separation Anxiety and the woos of a dog dealing with the families routine changing and all the stress that comes with “back to school” schedule changes.
  • Start now mimicking the changes the dog will be experiencing the changes associated with returning back to school.
  • Start retrieving games with your dog now so you can have a quick exercise program before school to help your dog decompress.
  • Allot in your children’s schedule a time for them to interact with the dog between arriving home from school and homework schedules.
  • Get your dog temperament test and used to going to a dog daycare once a week for stress relief.
  • Find interactive toys now that your dog will enjoy when they are in the crates and left for longer periods of time.
  • Some dogs might need a homeopathic stress relief ointment like lavender oil or a stress relieving pill “stress easy or stress relief” found in your local pet stores.

Dog Dock Diving

Our recent Dock Diving class is a success! 
Congratulations to our dock divers Riley McPhail, Dexter Ring, Rocky Okiyama.   Rick Carpenter is our dock diving instructor.  Most of you have met rick at our “Splash Day” events.  He is an excellent teach and it shows in all the success our dogs are having in the dock diving class.
We are excited to introduce the new dog sport called “Dock Diving.” I am sure you have seen some events in the media or on the extreme dog sports channels. Do you have an athletic dog? Do you even know if your dog is athletic?  Dogs who do not enjoy agility may love swimming or dock diving.  If you already have a dock diving dog, then you have a great new place to practice! Participating in this ever-increasingly popular dog sport is rewarding for both you and your dog. The excitement at these events is contagious! These competitions build true camaraderie amongst dog lovers and can expand your circle of friends while providing great exercise and socialization for your furry best friend!!
