 Dogs are said to be seniors when they are 7 years old or older. In human terms, they are in their mid-40s. As they enter their senior years, they begin to experience more physical problems, sleep longer, and undergo various other changes compared to when they were younger.

 It is our hope that everyone who lives with a dog will learn more about senior dogs, whether you are currently struggling with the care, wish to gain the knowledge for the future, or simply wish to do something for your beloved dog.

Senior Dog Classes

 Lectures and workshops (hands on) will be held in a small-group at-home atmosphere. Our expert staff will also answer any questions or concerns you may have that you may not normally have the opportunity to ask. The workshop is also popular as a place for community among dogs of the same age and owners who have similar problems.
 A series of six sessions will be held in total. The content is designed for senior dogs in various stages of life, from healthy pre-seniors to high-seniors in the midst of nursing care. We encourage you to attend with your dog, although you are welcome to participate alone as well. It is also possible to take only the sessions you are interested in.

 In particular, nursing care issues vary widely, depending on the family's circumstances and living environment, and we will propose solutions for each dog's specific problems.
 Also, please feel free to contact us for advice on daily exercises such as massage and rehabilitation.
