Canine Life & Social Skills: An Outdoor Group Dog Training Class, beginning Saturday, October 12th, 2019

This series of 5 classes will be taught by Park Cities Pet Sitter trainer, Valerie Fry.  Valerie is a member of APDT, graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Training and Behavior, and is also an official Canine Good Citizen evaluator.

Class participants will learn and practice a number of “good dog” behaviors, as they work towards their Bachelor’s Certificate.  At the Bachelors level, we do allow the use of treats as rewards after the completion of an exercise.  Some of the “real life” skills that are learned during the class include:

  • settling down
  • waiting at the door
  • leashing up manners
  • walking nicely on a leash
  • meeting strangers
  • waiting for the food bowl
  • coming when called
