FREE Virtual Intro to Training Class 11/21

Our training partners at A Sound Beginning are offering their monthly FREE Virtual “Intro to Training” class 11/21 from 6:00-7:30pm via Zoom; this is a great opportunity for anyone looking to refresh their positive reinforcement training skills!


This 1-hour class (followed by a 30-minute Q&A) will teach you how dogs learn, how best to teach them, and how to begin a positive training plan. Topics covered:

  • NOT EVERY WAG MEANS THEY’RE GLAD – Learn what your dog is saying by understanding the communication and language of dogs AND learn what YOU can do to help your dog understand YOUR language!
  • CLICKS and TREATS – How to begin training to establish a trusting relationship by using positive reinforcement.
  • MINE! – Learn how to prevent a dog from guarding things of value and what to do if you need to take something away.
  • WHO IS THAT? – Teach your dog to be comfortable around new people, places, other animals, and cope with changes in their environment.
