This class is for anyone but especially for dog parents who are currently in the midst of their dog’s adolescent period (from around 6 months to 2 or 3 years). Dogs experiencing adolescence need exercise of their bodies but also exercising of their brains! As we have learned with our dogs, a physically tired dog is only part of the equation.
In this class, we provide much of what you’ll find if you rent the training center on your own – but now, you’ll bring your dog around to different stations in the presence of other dogs. For 50 minutes, you’ll have various stations to visit with new exercises for you and your dog to learn (with multiple levels so you’ll always have something new when you return!). You’ll be able to focus on the behaviors your dog has already learned, too. At one station, we will have puzzle toys and snuffle mats so your dog can have some independent time (yes, just like teenagers, our adolescent dogs need some time to themselves) to work things out on her own.
