For over 10 years, we have been working with animals for customized training and behavioral management in the Washington DC metro area and beyond. From monkeys to dogs and from Chicago to South Africa, we've cared for and connected with animals of all sizes to improve a specific issue and/or overall behavior. We provide care and training for your fur baby as if they were our own, and ensure that they receive the highest quality care while they're in our program.
When you live a busy life, it is hard to consistently provide the attention and care that your pets can demand. We fit your desired training into your schedule with on-site services or boarding during the prescribed program.

Inglenook is the warm bench or nook by a fireplace. Warm. Cozy. Homey. Relaxing. And I've always been a fan of 'nooks'. It's why my personal (and animal misadventures) were all under the name TheJungleNook for a number of years now. It was something that started as a joke at field research sites for the reading nooks I would hodge-podge together in the middle of the jungle. As an animal behaviorist, I can relate to their need for a cozy haven.
