Come learn ways to help prevent your cat from destroying your furniture and carpets by scratching. This Free Behavioral Help Session will help you understand the normal behavioral needs cats have for scratching and ways to meet those needs that are acceptable to both cats and people.
Tricks? Why would you want to teach your dog to “bow” or “back up”? There are so many reasons! Teaching your dog tricks will increase your dog’s mental stimulation, sharpen your training skills, strengthen your relationship and communication skills with each other, and gives your dog something fun to do instead of the unwanted behavior.
Does your dog get stressed out and destroy household items when you leave the house? Do they eliminate or howl for hours the moment you step out the door to go to work? Do they become anxious at just the sight of you picking up your keys or putting your shoes on?
Teaching your dog to come when called enthusiastically and immediately is an important skill every dog should learn. It might end up saving his or her life! Not only does a speedy recall allow your dog more fun and freedom, it gives you peace of mind that your dog will return when asked. In this 4-week class, you will learn ways to build focus and a variety of techniques to teach a reliable recall, even around distractions.
Does your dog growl, bark, lunge, and just get all into a tizzy when he sees other dogs or people? If so this class is for you. Learn body language so that you can better know what to expect, what steps you can take to prevent your dog from going into this state of mind, and lots more.
