Bark to School Year is the Your Pet Space annual Tricks Class for dogs, and each year has a fun theme–this year’s theme for the dogs in daycare was Mobster Mutts!


Is your dog a criminal at heart? Does he steal your shoes, go into a hideout, or escape when you least expect it?  Does she bat her eyes at you to get some special treat, then make off with your lunch when your bark is turned?  Well then, it’s possible you have a Mobster Mutt or a Mobster Moll Mutt!  Whether your dog is the Boss of you, a Goodfella, or a Living Doll, we’re about to make you an offer you can’t refuse!

When these dogs came to daycare, we taught them a new trick every week for 8 weeks.  We also provided pet parents with an online video learning system to continue training with their dog at home.

Traditionally, we have our Tricks for Treats contest live, on-site at YPS.  But this year, for client safety, we asked clients to take a video of their dog doing tricks at home.  (Some clients asked us to take their video for them.)

We explained that funny routines with sequential tricks and costumes were not required but killing your audience with cute never hurts.  😉

Now you have a chance to decide which Mobster Mutts will win these prizes**!

DA BOSS: (1st place winner) will receive $80 cash prize
