Body Language Workshop: Wednesday 5/9 @8p-9p
This *FREE* workshop is for humans only–bring the whole family! For humans to effectively communicate, we’ve devised an immense vocabulary, but dogs are limited to ‘words’ formed by their body parts. Understanding what your dog is saying is extremely important to prevent bites, fights, and miscommunications!
Canine Gym Class: Will be held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6p-7p.
This class is more than a workout routine or an obedience class. It’s Fun. Dog. Fitness. The combination of physical and mental exercise is absolutely critical to a well-balanced dog. **You’re welcome to join this class if you’re currently enrolled with us in a Beginner II level obedience class and above, or have your instructor’s permission. Canine Gym counts as one class out of your package**
Puppy Play Group: Will be held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 6p-6:45p
A healthy alternative to a dog park! You’ll learn the difference between good play, not so good play, and all the steps in between. We divide puppies so that everyone is playing in their proper “weight class”. All puppies under 5 months old are welcome. Fee $25.
**There will be no Multiple Dog Household Workshop in May**
