Come and Meet the Trainers! It's like Speed Dating but with dog training. For two Sundays you can reserve a 15 minute slot to work one-on-one with a trainer or Julie Bond, Animal Behaviorist at NO CHARGE! Ask anything you want about how to train your dog to do (or not do) something or just ask questions.
AdobeDogs is proud to welcome 2 new trainers, Molly Hughes and long-time apprentice Marina Egorova, plus Animal Behaviorist Julie Bond. Read more and reserve your spot on the Class Schedule page.
***Regretfully, this is not an appropriate venue for aggressive or leash reactive dogs. If you want to discuss aggression, please leave your dog at home and make sure your appointment is scheduled with Julie Bond, the other trainers will not be working with aggression.

**Puppy Preschool for pups ages 10-16 weeks at the start of class for more details about puppies, class, advice, etc click the YOUR NEW PUPPY link, above. Here's some feedback on just ONE of the things we teach in Preschool Maizie's family has done a great job of teaching her to bring them things instead of eating them and we all know how toxic chocolate can be to dogs. Maizie weighs about 4 pounds so almost any amount would be VERY serious: "We have been working on "whatcha got?" EVERYTHING she brings us, we ask to see it, in exchange for a treat. Some stuff she gets back. My husband said he thinks she is just getting stuff for a treat. I told him that that was actually the goal, then told him your 'box of rat poison' story.
The other day, our boys had several friends over and were eating candy in their room, (even though they all know that's a NO-NO!) The next day we were all in the living room and she brought me a half-eaten chocolate bar she'd found on the floor. She was carrying it by the wrapper, prancing, SSOOO proud of herself. Of course, she got a handful of treats! Thank you for saving our baby girl!"
