Leash Pulling Workshop - Instructor: Alisha Fritz. Two separate 755 minute sessions WITH dogs held for two consecutive weeks. This Workshop will discuss the reasons why dogs pull and how humans unintentionally teach their dogs to pull harder. We will cover training and management techniques to make walks more enjoyable for both dogs and their human families. All dogs should come with well-fitted collars or harnesses and a standard 4 or 6 foot leash. Absolutely no retractable leashes. The humans should bring lots of soft treats your dog really enjoys as well as a way to carry them, such as a treat pouch. Both humans and dogs will be moving a lot during these workshops.
Classes scheduled every week on Monday starting 1/15/2018 and ending 1/22/2018 at 6:30PM
Separtation Anxiety Workshop - Instructor: Alisha Fritz. This workshop is designed to help identify and discuss basic solutions for dogs who display signs of anxiety when separated from their human family. This may be when they are completely alone, or separated from a specific person. We will discuss the symptoms of separation anxiety in dogs and the various resources available for treating the problem. Extra time is scheduled to review and answer questions about each attendees individual animal and situation. Please leave your dog at home for this workshop, HUMANS ONLY!

Workshop: Dog to Dog Communication - Does a wagging tail mean a dog is friendly? Not always! Whether you are introducing your dog to a friend or family member's canine companion, visiting a dog park, or just walking down the street it is important to pay attention to the cues your dogs body language is giving you. We discuss doggie communication and give you a basic understanding of whether your dog is enjoying an interaction and whether or not that interaction is safe. There will be time at the end of the session to answer questions about your individual dog, but we will not be delving into specific behavior problems. Please leave your dog at home for this workshop, HUMANS ONLY!
