4TH OF JULY DOG SAFETY

The 4th is a fun filled time for many pet owners but for some dogs it is nothing short of traumatic.  More dogs escape, run away and are lost on this day than any other of the year…please this year – keep your dogs secure and inside – even if you think they will be okay with it…make sure they are wearing a collar with ID tags and that your microchip information is up to date!

ALSO – WATCH THOSE WING & BBQ BONES!!  Plates get left around, trash cans raided, food stolen and all that temptation can be hard, for even the best behaved dogs!

Have a great 4th and we hope that everyone makes it through safely.

The first level (recommended for dogs 6+ months old) is:
Bachelors (BA) Obedience Training
This is an introductory dog obedience class for dogs six months of age and older. It’s never too late to late for you and your dog to learn basic obedience, and this class is the perfect way to start! Here are some of the key commands and concepts you and your dog will learn in this fun and interactive class:

  • Warm Up — Showing a dog how to investigate a new situation comfortably and potty on command.
  • Loose Leash Walking — Most pet owners really appreciate a dog that walks nicely on a leash without pulling. Positive training and proper equipment is key.
  • Attention — Teaches your dog to pay attention to you and not be bounding off after squirrels or cats.
  • Wait at the door — The ability to maintain position at the door until invited to move through the door.
  • Meet and Greet — The importance of having your dog wait comfortably at your side while you chat with a friend – with or without another dog present -shows the dog self-control and patience.
  • Leashing Up Manners — Teaches your dog to sit quietyly until released while you put on or take off his leash.
  • Leave it — Refers to his muzzle; learn to put his attention back on you and away from something else that he is interested in.
  • Come — Probably the most critical command to teach but can be started at an early age. This command provides a great opportunity to bond with your dog!
  • Wait for the food bowl — Rather then grabbing for or rushing for the food bowl, this shows the dog’s self control around a very valuable resource.
  • Stay — Stay means don’t move a muscle until I release you. This command can save a dog’s life.
  • Settle — A dog who can calm down on cue is more welcome in society and other’s homes.
  • Give and Take — A dog who will willingly give up valued toys or food to anyone is a dog you would trust around your children.

Each level (BA, MA & PHd) is taught over a 6 week class with an exam at the end.  Student Handbooks will be provided and extra reference materials such as videos will be posted to our Facebook page and here.
