We want to Congratulate our latest Dog-Ed Saturday Training Classes Graduates!
Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed taught two different classes this past month:

The dogs learned how to greet people politely, how to "wait", and how to "leave". The families also gained knowledge of how to use their body language to influence their dog's behavior. Way to go!

Congratulations to the dedicated participants who brought their canine companions to Dog-Ed's recent Saturday training classes taught by Jenny White, CPDT-KA. This class, Follow Me: Enjoy walks with your dog again!, was held here at Animal Hospital of North Asheville every week for four weeks. The participants learned techniques to become proficient at loose leash walking with their dogs and how to increase their dog’s attention on them when distractions occur. This class helped strengthen mechanical and motivational skills so future walks will be more pleasurable.
