Nacina is definitely a dog lover! She took extremely good care of our beloved dog, Troop. She stayed in touch with us & sent photos of him playing with other dogs. Troop had a great time! Next time we go to Pahrump we will call on her again. Becky

Nacina went above and beyond anything that I ever expected. My three month old puppy, Lucy sent nine happy days with Nacina while I was out of town. Nacina introduced Lucy to much needed socialization skills using her own beautiful and WELL TRAINED dogs. See sent me lots of pics and video's. Lucy had an absolutely fabulous time at Nacina's home. Nacina also trained with her, and taught me how to continue on with training ...

Nacina was amazing with my 6-month old lab. She sent pictures throughout the visit of him having the time of his life, and her adorable, well-trained Golden Retrievers made the perfect play companions. I would highly recommend her services.

When Nacina watches your pet

A Day in the life of a Puppy in Puptopia Daycare (Summer Schedule) 2017
8am- Drop off, say bye to Mom and spend 15 minutes exploring the yard with Nacina, but no other dogs. I can take all the time I want, to acclimate and relax until I’m comfortable and feeling secure. I get rewarded for good behavior, and get support if I’m scared or anxious.
8:15am- Supervised playtime in the yard with Marina. She is a sweet Golden who loves little dogs and puppies, and will lay down so she can instill confidence. If another puppy of appropriate age and size is available, they are added to the playgroup one at a time, in about 5 minute intervals. Nacina is there the whole time to make sure no one is bullied or plays too rough.
8:45am- Breaktime indoors for a nap, a snack, some cuddling, or alone time, as desired. I get to choose the activity and am not forced to do anything. Nacina is very good at helping pups have a great experience that is as stress free as possible. I get to bring my favorite blanket and toy, if I want to.
9:15am- Into the yard with Nacina for potty and sniffing, then 5 minutes of (all positive) training, then more supervised play. The training is so much fun because it is earning rewards for things like sitting, eye contact, and recall. Nacina will never raise her voice, jerk my neck, or treat me harshly. She really listens to pups and communicates clearly.
10:15am- Breaktime, separate activity as desired. I get to choose! Probably a nap, though, because all this is so exciting!
11:30am- Outside to potty and sniff, supervised. Back inside for a 5 minute (all positive) training session, then Siesta. I’ve had so much fun already, I need to recharge.
1pm- outside to potty and sniff, supervised. Back inside for some play, socialization, snuggling. Playing indoors where it is cool is nice, there is lots to do here.
The rest of the day is spent alternating indoor activities with outdoor breaks for potty and sniffing. All dogs are supervised at all times, unless supervision is not available (Nacina has to eat lunch,) at which time the pups are penned separately. If a crate is stressful for the pup, they can be penned in a larger area, or confined with a baby gate. The time spent confined is very minimal and used only to keep the pups safe when they can’t be closely supervised. I work very hard to provide a stress free experience for my furry guests and have spent a lifetime learning canine behavior, communication, and force-free handling, to facilitate this fun, safe, and happy environment. I have over 32 years experience providing the very best professional canine care, specializing in young puppy socialization and training.
