“Dog About Town”
This experience is best suited for adolescent dogs ages 7 months-2 years old, who have no history of fighting with other dogs or biting people, but other ages are accepted. Ideally, each dog has been through puppy training, but it is not required.
The adolescent dog is often too big and too rough to play with puppies and too immature to play nicely with adult dogs. They often are full of energy and mischief and need lots of fine-tuning on what they have learned but not yet mastered.
This is the final age bracket to really work on problem behavior prevention. Barking and lunging on leash at people, other dogs, and kids is all too common, and once practiced, difficult to reverse. If dogs at this age do not receive the training they need and deserve, they often don’t live life to the fullest. Dogs should be well-behaved at kids’ sports events, at friends’ houses visiting, in the car, in the lobby of the vet, on the street and wherever else you’d like to bring your dog.
“Dog About Town” will give you real life practice, with my help, to deal with the behaviors you are struggling with and overcome any reluctance you have bringing your dog out into public. I expect to cover leash manners, listening in a distracting environment, ignoring passer-byers, focusing on you and more.
Each week, I will invite you to meet me at a dog-friendly, public location with different challenges to put your training to work. I will make efforts to meet on all sides of Jacksonville to accommodate folks.
