Canine Care, Inc. was established in 1985 and has been evolving ever since. We started as a small pet-sitting company, which served as a wonderful way to get to know many different dogs and people, and discover what makes a canine’s everyday life interesting, fulfilling and healthy. Today, we offer a wide range of canine training, health and fitness services.

Barb Scalise, owner/president, is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Canine Myotherapist and a Certified Canine Acupressure Practitioner.

I absolutely love to work with my dogs. Agility, Rally Obedience, Hunt Tests, Tracking, going for a long walk around the neighborhood… you name it. But I also realize that it’s important to be aware of the dog’s ability to handle all of that training, both mentally and physically. You need to have a great relationship with your veterinarian and, in my opinion, it’s also important to be able to give your dog some supportive care in between visits. Of course, an appropriate diet and basic knowledge of nutrition are essential components of the well being of any species.
