Friend and colleague, Rikke Brogaard, and I just wrapped up our first round of dog manners classes at Monster Mutt Doggie Daycare in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. We are so proud of how far our students have come since the first night we met them. The best part is that all the dog owners have learned great techniques to work with their dogs as they continue to develop their relationships. They have a better understanding of how dogs think and learn and they’ve learned to use positive reinforcement as the main way to teach.
Our next round of Puppy Kindergarten class (8pm) and Adult Basic Manners class (9pm) start August 9th, 2011. If you want to improve your communication with your pup and want to do it in a FUN way, sign up now!
Check out the video of Ludo and Domo playing. Ludo, the Welsh Terrier, was nervous in week 1 and wouldn’t interact. The video was taken in week 3 and she was like a whole different dog!
