Another Fun Dog Walk

1.4 miles

Westside Animals for Adoption had their Patterson Pack Walk this past Saturday.  A+ Dog Training joined in on the fun as a family.  We walked 1.4 miles around the neighborhoods of Patterson in 50 minutes.  Their walks are held every last Saturday of the month at 9:00 A.M.  See their website for more details.  This is a free and great opportunity to get to know dogs for adoption and to socialize your dog around other dogs and people.

Happy Memorial Day

Columbia State Park Memorial Day

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Weekend.  A+ Dog Training took some time off to hang out at Columbia State Park.  The fox tails are out, but we steered clear.  Temperatures were a bit cooler in Sonora.  Expect high temperatures all week so if you’re not taking your dog with you into the stores, keep your dog at home!  The car is so much hotter and your dog will over heat.

Patterson is Holding a Pack Walk

A+ Dog Training encourages all dog owners to join Westside Animals for Adoption and its  members for a dog walk in downtown Patterson.   A+ Dog Training attends as a family to help gear our dog ready for summer trips out of town.  The more you socialize your dog around other dogs and people, the easier it will be to eat “al fresca” at your favorite restaurant in Modesto or Carmel!  

Walks last for about 45 minutes. Come and go as you please.  Meet behind Patterson Veterinary Hospital, 24 S. 3rd Street. 892-3114. This Saturday,  May 28, is their next walk at 9:00 A.M.

Social Club Hour!!!!!

Spring is starting to turn to summertime.  You know what that means, weather is getting hotter!!!  It is time for the A+ Dog Training Pool Socials.  We would like to do 3 pool socials this summer.  Let us know if you would like to host a pool social at your house.  We will give you details on how you can host a pool social or dog social.  This is a great way to teach your dog to swim and get in/out of the pool while you are meeting new people in the Turlock/Modesto area.

Home Training Outside of Home
