    Does enjoyment for all include your dog?  Or, are you concerned that the holiday buzz and excitement does not lend to your dog remaining well behaved?  This is a common them in households with dogs.  Many worry about their dogs jumping on friends and family who visit.  Some dogs are so excited it is hard to enjoy time with relatives or their dogs cannot ignore the great holiday food. 

    Enrolling in a class that helps you teach your dog behaviors to do in these situations can create a more relaxed holiday season for all, especially you.  Instead of worrying about what your dog will do, practice some behaviors so everyone enjoys the holidays including you and your dog.

    LEASH WALKING SKILLS: WALK IN HARMONY WITH YOUR DOG

    Does your dog pull on leash? Haul you down the street to greet new friends, to get to that squirrel, or to smell the next bush? Or, do you want your new puppy or dog to start off right with excellent leash manners? If you would like to enjoy your walks, in harmony with your dog and with a loose leash between you, this is the class for you. In this three week class we will focus exclusively on the skills you and your dog need to well walk together. We will discuss the bewildering array of walking equipment now on the market, and how to make the right choices for you and your dog. Your dog will learn the foundation skills (s)he needs to walk with you without pulling: focus, response to leash pressure, walking positions, and how to move with you when you start, stop, and turn. You will learn the skills you need, too: leash handling and mechanics, effective communication with your dog while (s)he is leashed, and how to encourage the walking you like while eliminating the pulling you don't. Oh, and we will play lots of loose leash games--fun for dogs and handlers alike!

    This class is appropriate for: Both dogs that already pull, as well as puppies and dogs (4 months and older) that are just learning how to walk well on a leash. This class is not appropriate for dogs that are aggressive on leash.

    When: Classes begin at 1pm November 17 and run three weeks
    Where: Picnic Pavilion 7
    Fee:  $75
