There are plenty of ways to say “I Ruv You” to your favorite furry buddy (table scraps, ear rubs, a windy car ride). But kennel living while you’re sunning yourself poolside isn’t typically one of them.
Lucky for you we’ve got your dog’s holiday plans on tap for December: Carl’s Calm Canines Board and Train in River Vale.
You may have heard of Bergen’s “dog whisperer”, Carl Zive, before. You know; the self professed dog-lover who studied under the tutelage of Cesar Milan’s protégé to become an expert in Milan’s methods. Rambunctious Ridgebacks, Aggressive Akitas, Submissive Salukis and others have been quelled of undesirable behaviors using behaviorist Zive’s insight into pooch psyche.
And now, for those breeds with a little more need, (or just in need of a break from mom and dad), Zive is offering longer term solutions in his new Board and Train program. Housed in its own building within The Pet Lodge in River Vale, the training facility is where upper crust canines go for extended (full day, 7 day, two week) stays. Daily routines consist of muscle building hour long pack walks, one-on-one training for specific issues, and treadmill runs, and finish off with doggie down time (residents lounging on day beds in the Great Room), leaving your pooch relaxed and more manageable.
Now that’s not such a ruff life after all.
(Board and Train Services start at $100 per day, call for specific pricing; in home services also available)

Hi! I'm searching for a chess class or club for my kindergartner in Bergen County? Any ideas? -Rachel J.
Yes, as a matter of fact we have two. ICA (International Chess Academy) hosts camps, clubs, tournaments and special events in Teaneck and Fair Lawn, so definitely check them out. Or if those areas aren’t convenient, one of the ICA instructors is hosting a club out of the Saddle River Library for ages Kindergarten and up which is broken down by skill level so it makes it easy for kids to learn and not get discouraged.
