The holidays are almost here! We’re so excited to help you make this year’s holidays the best they can be for you and your canine companion!
If you’ve not yet experienced our Playcare and FastTrack programs, now is a great time to try them! While you’re shopping, wrapping, cleaning and doing everything else on your list, we’ll give your dog the training and exercise he needs. That means, when you bring him home, he’ll be ready for bed, with visions of squeaky toys dancing in his head!
There are so many great things happening at Kathy Santo Dog Training, and we know you’ll love them too!
A SEASON FOR GIVING
Kathy Santo Dog Training and the National Foundation For Animal Rescue are hosting our annual the Food Drive for Center for Food Action to help feed dogs (and cats) of families in need.
You can donate one of a few ways:
1. Bring a check in your donation amount made out to CFFA
2. Bring a bag of cat food to the school (or grooming shop!) for the NFFAR cats/kittens in need
3. Mail us a check made out to either organization

GIFT IDEAS AND HOLIDAY SPECIALS
Of all the gifts I have to buy over the holidays, the ones that are the most exciting to me are the ones I buy for my dogs. In addition to being great gifts for them, the research that goes into the shopping yields great ideas that I can pass on to YOU! Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas (and where to get them!).
And because it’s the season for giving, we’re offering great discounts on our popular Playcare program with the purchase of Kathy Santo Dog Training gift certificates.

HOLIDAY SCHOOL SCHEDULE
We know you’re probably running around doing last minute cooking – shopping – returning – decorating, but we also know that if you can make it to class, your dog will be a lot happier and tired than if he was home. Just…… resting up.
So to help with that, for the two Saturdays over Christmas, we’ve condensed our classes to 9-12. That frees your day up from noon on, to finish what’s still left on your “To Do” list. Here’s how to find the right class for you:
If you’re in the 1 pm Puppy Class:
You should come to the 9 am Puppy class.
If you’re in the 11 am, 12 pm, or 2 pm classes:
You can come to the 9 am Intermediate class, OR the 11 am class
If you’re in the 10 am Beginner Class:
That’s your class!
For a little extra help, because we know the holidays are already tough and that having a dog (or new puppy!) is definitely challenging. Combining the two, can lead to total chaos!
This is why the Kathy Santo Holiday Survival Guide exists. It’s filled with solutions to a drama-free holiday season! This FREE guide is a culmination of my 30+ years of dog training, and now you can use it to save the holidays…for you AND your pets.

We try to answer as many as we can!
Q: My dog “Sweetie” always growls at my cousin when she comes over to the house because she insists on sitting on my dog’s chair. No one, including myself, is allowed on that chair, and I’m o.k. with that. My feeling is that if she would just go sit on the floor for a few minutes, like everyone else does, and let Sweetie lick her face, everything would be just fine… Kathy’s answer…
Q: I just bought my dog her first winter coat and boots, but when I put them on her she won’t move. How do I get her to love her new gear? Kathy’s answer…
