The Friendly Dog Playgroup is a safe and fun time for your dog to play and maintain his level of socialization with people and other dogs. This class is light on obedience, but a topic may include: narrating the interactions of the dogs, review of basic obedience cues, trouble-shooting individual issues, etc.
This Group is where owners of unsocial dogs would love to see their dogs play, so I have organized the group to assist in integrating dogs that need some help.
Any new dog that has not been integrated before and may still look scary on leash, but I feel will work out in one or two go rounds, will be brought in at 2:45. The owners who are willing to be exposed to this new dog will stay and anyone who wants to leave or opt out or watch from a safe area are welcome to do so. The safety and enjoyment of all people and dogs is paramount. I will be diligent about keeping this group safe and fun. Any participant can feel free to speak to me bluntly if a dog makes her uncomfortable or the group declines in friendliness.
I have been very successful with several dogs that otherwise would have been shunned from society and I am pleased to help these owners and dogs have a better quality of life. If I get the commitment, I want to give it back to these people and I thank those of you that participate in this process with your dogs.
