Instructor: Alisha Fritz - Dealing with Distrations - Once a dog has learned his or her basic manners, it's beneficial to help them learn to respond to their human even in distracting situations. This workshop will cover the concepts of how distance, duration, and difficulty effect your dog's reaction to distractions. We'll discuss how to help them learn to give attention back to you when they are interested in something with a strong emphasis on helping them believe that you are more exciting than the resident squirrels. Enrolled dogs should have been introduced to basic manners such as sit, down, stay, come, and leave it, and should be under control in the presence of other dogs and humans. They must also be up-to-date on vaccinations and at least 6 months old. Workshop is held in Smoky's Training Center, located in the far end of the building and accessed from the 3rd parking lot down from the corner in the same building that houses the new Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital.

Workshop: Reading Canine Body Language - Instructor - Alisha Fritz - When you want to make a good impression while greeting another person, do you make direct eye contact, smile, and reach out to shake hands? Did you know that in dog language staring, showing teeth, and hovering are all threats? Join us for a presentation on understanding how your dog communicates via body language. Dogs do not use verbal communication in the same way as humans, but we can learn to listen and understand them. We will cover how to tell when your dog is excited, friendly, confident, or frightened. Time will be left at the end of the session to answer questions about individual dogs. Please leave your dog at home for this workshop. This workshop is for HUMANS ONLY. Workshop is held in Smoky's Training Center, located in the far end of the building and accessed from the 3rd parking lot down from the corner in the same building that houses the new Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital.

We will offer education and helpful hints about making this transition as seamless and stress-free as possible. While this not a dog or cat training class per se, we will offer behavioral insights and recommendations regarding specific training needs and concerns. Topics will include tips on making sure you and your pet work through any changes in your pet's routine and lifestyle prior to the birth of the baby, manners, socialization, the big day the baby comes home and more.
