Dog Ownership Rules in Frisco, Texas

A barking dog can present a major problem within urban areas such as Frisco. While some people are very tolerant of a dog barking, other residents are sensitive to the disturbance. Remember that your neighbors may work various shifts and be sleeping during the day or your neighbors may work from home.

It is a violation of the City of Frisco Animal Control Ordinance to allow your pets to create noise that interferes with the public peace and comfort. Failure to prevent a noise violation may result in citations being issued.

A well-trained dog is a great family member for many reasons.  But in order to ensure your dog’s behavior complies with city ordinances, you need your dog to be properly trained.  Dog training takes time and proper guidance from REAL professionals.  Regularly receiving feedback from a trainer who is invested in you and your dog’s success makes the entire training process more efficient. Our dogs are family, so it’s vital to properly educate and communicate with them.

That’s where we can help!

Here at The Collar Club Academy, we have dog trainers who have been training in combined areas of expertise for over 60 years! We don’t believe dog training comes in a “one size fits all” format. While some dogs may have behavioral issues like aggression, other owners may need guidance on how to properly communicate loose leash walking. You want the best for your dog, and we do too! That’s why we take the time to get to know both you and your dog, so we can teach you how you and your dog can fit into one another’s lifestyle.

One of our biggest goals is to make sure that after our training process, you walk away with a better understanding of your dog and their needs. Your eyes will be opened to a whole new world and a better understanding of your dog.  We are proud to offer private training sessions in addition to comprehensive board and train programs that will properly train your dog in a relatively short period of time.  Professional dog training is required to address problem behaviors and encourage positive socialization.  Our facility is world-class and designed to cater to your dog's training needs in the comfort of a home environment.

The Collar Club Academy offers a personalized approach to dog and puppy training. Our trainers will make sure they’re tailoring their training so it will fit you and your dog’s communication and personalities perfectly. Whether you are a senior citizen, looking to take dog sports to the next level, or someone who wants to simply enjoy life with their dog at home, we have you covered!

Dog Walking in Frisco, Texas

Hiring a dog walker can provide awesome benefits for you and your pet.  Here are a few reasons why you should hire a dog walker in Frisco, Texas:

1. To protect and maintain your dog’s health

Like you, our furry friends need regular exercise to live long, healthy, and happy lives.  According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, around 54% of dogs and cats in the United States are obese.  Many dogs develop high-maintenance health issues in their lifetime that could easily be prevented or diminished with proper exercise.  One of the best ways to keep your canine companion in good health is to walk them at least 3 or more times a day for at least 20 minutes.

2. To provide socialization opportunities

When your dog goes for a walk, not only do they get the exercise they need, but the walk stimulates their senses.  During a walk, your dog is able to see, smell, feel, and hear many new and interesting things.  Dogs often get to meet other people or animals during their walk, which can be a great way to encourage proper socialization.  We can take for granted these brief encounters, but for our dogs, these socialization opportunities are the highlight of their day. 

3. To improve your dog’s behavior

When your dog is walked regularly, you help to release your dog’s excess energy and make them calmer overall.  A tired dog is a well-behaved dog.   With regular, lengthy walks, it is much  less likely that your dog will be destructive or disruptive.

4. To improve your peace of mind

When you aren’t at home, you want peace of mind that your dog is being well taken care of.  When you hire a dog walker, you don’t have to worry if you need to stay late at work or have evening plans. Knowing that your dog will still get to spend time outside on a walk while you’re gone helps relieve any guilt or stress you may have.  You don’t want your dog to be locked up alone for 8 hours or more a day.  With a daily dog walker in Frisco, Texas, you can feel confident that you are providing the best possible care for your dog.  

5. To give you more time in your schedule

When you have a jam-packed schedule, every minute counts.  It can be hard to fit regular long walks into your schedule sometimes.  You might need to wake up super early, go home on your lunch hour, or delay fun evening plans with your family to make sure your dogs get the care they need and deserve.  When you have a regular dog walker, your dog will get all of the exercise and attention they deserve, and you will get back your lost time.  It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

Pet Sitting in Frisco, Texas

If you’re a dog owner in Frisco, TX, finding reliable pet sitting services is key to ensure you can leave your pets at home and enjoy your time away with peace of mind. Whether you’re headed for a weekend road trip or a two-week getaway, you need someone responsible to look after your pets and take care of the dog walking.

Kennels may be an option, but ultimately home pet sitting is best for your pets because they get to remain in the comfort of their own home while you are gone and avoid travel trauma. Home pet sitters are also the best option if your pets have any illnesses or special needs that would prevent them from leaving your home easily. For this reason and many more, in Frisco pet sitting is a popular option for many pet owners to ensure companionship and potty breaks for their best friends.

Whether you’ve booked a trip spontaneously for next week or are planning your journey in a few months from now, we will do our best to help you with your pet sitting needs!  The Collar Club team is composed of experienced, professional pet sitters who focus on making sure your pet gets the best possible care. 

Our employees visit your pets multiple times a day to ensure they get the attention they need.  If you’re looking for overnight care, consider booking one of our Board and Train programs that combines obedience training with overnight boarding for your pup.
