Picture Perfect Pets, LLC - Burlington, MA United States

Picture Perfect Pets’ passion is all about shaping puppies and dogs in the ruff into picture perfect pets through positive training. Services include drop-off Day School for all puppies under 23-weeks old and dogs older than that upon approval (Puppy Bus available to select areas). The Day School is so much more than a traditional "dog daycare." This program truly is a drop-off socialization and training service. The window of easy socialization closes around the age of 12 weeks and the brains of young puppies soak in learning like a sponge, so the sooner clients enroll a new puppy in Day School, the better the results will be. Some adolescent dogs may also qualify for Day School, but for others, private training with Bette Yip or one of her other instructors may be the appropriate option.

There are group classes for the whole family as well as private dog training for behavioral problem solving right in the settings where you need the help. For more on early puppy socialization, including why it's not only safe, but necessary, please Google the AVSAB Position Statement on Puppy Socialization.

They also offer overnight boarding aka “Slumber Parties,” as well as doggy daycare. One difference, though, their standards for admission into these two programs is extremely high. To participate in these two programs, dogs must be healthy, as well as friendly towards puppies, new dogs and humans. They must also be generally well-behaved because they serve as role models to the young puppies enrolled in their programs.

About the Owner, Bette Yip, CPDT-KA

Picture Perfect Pets is the culmination of Bette Yip's life-long love for animals & passion for photography and teaching. Bette spent 5 years teaching English immersion programs in Japan. This means that no Japanese could be used in lessons. Communicating solely in English with the aid of body language & props to teach students how to understand & use English gave Bette a unique perspective as a pet trainer. She learned to communicate with those who cannot speak our language, which is a useful skill when dealing with animals. She also learned to read & empathize with both human & canine students in order to tailor teaching methods to their specific needs. It's equally important for dog trainers to be good at training people to acquire skills needed to train their own pets. Through her work as a trainer of other instructors in Japan, Bette also fortified her skills as a people trainer, enabling her to more effectively teach clients how to their pets. Bette resides in Burlington with her husband, Siva, two large Russian Wolfhounds and one orange cat.
