Event Details
Mouthy Behavior Workshop
Instructor: Alisha Fritz

Saturday, March 23, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM



This workshop will address how to train dogs who put their mouth on you in a friendly manner, meaning they are not biting but displaying behavior that is inappropriate and may be uncomfortable for the human.  Topics will range from how to handle basic mouthing to get attention or during play, up to what to do when the dog becomes so worked up they are difficult to calm.  We will go back and forth between training with the dogs and discussing what to do at home, so please bring several items for your dog to chew on during down times to help keep them calm (such as Bully Sticks or stuffed Kongs). Enrolled dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations and at least 4 months old. Additional handlers are welcome.

Please bring to workshop:
- Dog wearing flat collar (body harness also okay)
- 4-6 ft leash, no retractable leashes
- Plenty of soft/stinky treats that your dog loves (e.g. hot dogs, string cheese, chicken)
- Several items for your dog to chew during down time (e.g. Bully Sticks or stuffed Kongs)
- Something to carry treats such as a training pouch or pockets (plastic sandwich bags do not work well)
