Play With Your Dog
Instructor: Marie Tripton

Monday, October 16, 2017 10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Instructor: Marie Tripton - Play With Your Dog. We are forming a new class encouraging people to play with their dogs.  Dogs play with other dogs. People feed and train their dogs.  But, how often are you encouraged to engage in new and creative ways to play with your dog?  Play with Your Dog presents a variety of fun games you can play with your pet that also incorporate skills building.  “My Dog Can Sit" that challenges you to help your dog enjoy sitting anywhere, anytime.  In “Loop de Loop” your dog has fun running to you and then to a tunnel; back to you and then to another tunnel.  A new game will be presented and practiced each week.  The following week a challenge will ensue involving the new game you learned.  Throughout the week, you can have fun playing the new game with your dog at home.  Play builds positive relationships, stronger bodies and sharper minds – for you and your dog.  Come join the fun! All classes will include dogs and will be held in Smoky’s Training Center, accessed from our 3rd parking lot.

Prerequisite: Canine Manners class or equivalent. Dogs will not engage with other dogs in this class, but they must be tolerant of other dogs since this will be an active dog environment.  If your dog does not generally play well around others, you are welcome to audit the class and practice the games at home with your pet. No more than 2 handlers per dog, please.
