SPRING INTO ACTION WITH DOG TRAINING AT PURR’N POOCH

Spring has sprung! The flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer. It’s the perfect season to enjoy time outside with your dog.

Is your dog’s behavior holding you back from enjoying the great outdoors? Tired of your baby pulling you around the park on the leash? Is he jumping for those burgers at the family barbecue? Is she having trouble listening to your basic commands like sit or stay? If any of these dilemmas are holding you back from enjoying a special day out-and-about with your best friend, we invite you and your pet to join us for training classes at Purr’n Pooch.

Spring is an ideal time to join Purr’n Pooch’s Trainer Iuliana Gedo, dip.CBST for her 6-week session of private and group classes for puppies and adolescents. A well-behaved, happy dog will enjoy an exciting summer of fun in the sun with family and friends!

Basic 1 Class Starts Wednesday, May 9th, 7:00 p.m.

Training Tips

  • Training must be FUN in order for your dog to learn.
  • Training is not hard; it just takes time, patience, consistency and persistence.
  • Training is not a spectator sport. You must participate to achieve.
  • Training is a lifelong process. If you stop practicing with your pet, he or she will forget. Teach new tricks, play new games and practice commands in new places. Keep training interesting for both you and your dog’s sake.

“Understanding your dog and knowing how to control him, develop his potentials, and resolve behavior problems, emotional conflicts and frustrations are no less essential than love and respect.” Michael W. Fox
