Pet Help Sessions and Classes: January 2020



What is Normal Puppy Behavior?!

Join us this Saturday for a free Behavior Help Session on what is normal puppy behavior. This help session is for anyone with a puppy under 5 months of age, anyone who is interested in understanding more about puppy behavior, or anyone planning on adding a puppy to the family. The focus of this help session will be to help you learn what age-appropriate puppy behavior is, learn how to establish good habits to prevent problems from developing, and discover how to take advantage of your puppy's socialization window.

This Free Help Session is presented by Tristan Rehner-Fleurant, MS, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, CBATI of Pet Behavior Aid.

A little about our Free Help Sessions:

Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. As much as we wish we could include your pet in this class, it is for humans only, so please leave all those sweet and wonderful pets at home.

These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first-come, first-seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care. Thank you for understanding.

In case of inclement weather, the class will be canceled. If you have any doubts about whether the class will be held, check our Facebook page or call Animal Hospital of North Asheville at 828-253-3393.
