Too often, I’ve seen people take their dogs to daycare, (or god forbid, a dog park) only to have their puppy attacked by another dog. While it doesn’t always happen, I’ve seen (too often) those pups become dog aggressive or very scared themselves. To that end, I am offering “Guided Puppy Playtime.”
This is how it will work:
You’ll come with your pup
You’ll bring treats
We do a little bit of training on leash – approximately 10 minutes so the pups can all get used to each other from a distance and I can see if any of the pups are too aroused to play safely.
Then we let them play off leash for about 10 minutes.
Then we train for another few minutes.
Then we take them out for a drink and potty walk.
We bring them back in and repeat – a little training, a little play.
I narrate dog body language and of course we manage the pups, and I teach you how to break it up safely in case they get over-aroused (NO spray bottles or other idiotic methods) so there isn’t a problem.
Then you go home and have a lovely tired puppy. Because a tired pup is a good pup.
Cost $15 per hour, “a la carte” or $10.00 per hour if you purchase a block of 5. While this is a drop in “class,” you MUST RSVP for each week, so I know how many dogs are coming
When you email me (or call), I need this information and this Guided Puppy Play Reg form:
Tell me about your dog
Spayed or neutered?
Any reactivity to other people or dogs?
Has your dog been exposed to other dogs and how was he/she?
What vaccinations has your dog had?
