Congratulations to Our Graduates!

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.
Congratulations also to the graduates of Jenny White’s Concentration Training Class. During this class, held on two consecutive Saturdays, registered attendees each brought their canine companion to learn how to build focus and how to shift the companion’s focus back to them during distractions. New environments, people, and other dogs are examples of challenges for which Jenny White, CPDT-KA taught participants coping skills.  
Classes like these are different from the Free (People-only) Behavior Help sessions that we have here at Animal Hospital of North Asheville on certain weekday evenings. While the Free sessions require no registration, registration and payment is required for the Saturday classes that dogs attend along with a caregiver. Dogs and their people love these classes as they are fun and are taught using positive reinforcement.
