Enjoying the “Dog Days” of summer?
If you are a dog owner looking for ideas to take your canine training to the next level, we have an informative and fun presentation by professional dog trainer Brett Shelby, scheduled for the evening of Monday August 1st.
In this workshop you will learn more about your canine friends to better understand them, so that you can get more of what you want through positive direction.
Brett will show you how to strengthen your relationship with your dog through proper communication and trust.
Says Brett, “Sit and Down” are good directions for your dog to start with, but what would be even better is if they do it naturally whenever you want, without having to command it of them.”
What’s more, Brett will be bringing in a dog or two, those that have never been worked with before, to demonstrate his teachings. There will be time for Q & A with the trainer at the end of the session.
