Blog Post - February 3, 2024

Category: What's New

Downtown Carlsbad is more than a destination, it's a community that thrives thanks to the people behind the small businesses. While The Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) supports and benefits all businesses in the Village, its members receive enhanced benefits and also the knowledge that their investment is helping us achieve our goals every single day. That's why CVA is proud to highlight some of our most dedicated members this month.

We would like to recognize and give a huge thank you to our returning members this month:

First Team Real Estate: Located right in the heart of downtown Carlsbad, First Team is aligned with the biggest brands in luxury real estate. First Team provides an unmatched level of worldwide exposure to the world’s most affluent homebuyers.

Phoenix Sports: Phoenix Sports is a unique, non-competitive sports programs for children ages 2-10. Their programs coach the fundamentals while promoting teamwork and confidence through fun kids' sports activities and games. Their smaller camp sizes provide a higher quality instruction for your kids. Phoenix Sports is owned by a credentialed teacher and their curriculum is designed to bring the classroom to the field. 

Please join us in welcoming our newest members and we thank you in advance for putting them at the top of your list when looking for quality businesses in Carlsbad:

Hot Dog on a Leash:  Hot Dog on a Leash is North County’s top dog daycare and dog training facility. They also offer bootcamp & board and board & train. Their trainers/behavior specialists have over 15 years of experience with all types of dogs, big or small. Their trainers are bilingual too! At Hot Dog on a Leash they believe when a dog learns to make his own decisions based upon his experiences, he becomes able to be reliable off the leash and is more capable of problem solving in unusual or difficult situations.

The Shine Project Foundation: The Shine Project Foundation helps to bridge the gap between families with children, teens, and young adults with special needs and local communities by partnering with businesses and organizations. They provide enrichment projects, events, and opportunities to help them explore their interests, creative skills, develop social, communication, life, recreation and vocational skills, make connections with other friends, families, and local resources, give access to their community, spread awareness, and most importantly helps them to SHINE!
