Leaving Dogs and Children Unsupervised


Lots of children love animals, but sometimes their enthusiasm means they could get hurt.  A young child could play too rough without knowing so a dog could strike out in self-defense.  Learn to supervise playtime during the holidays with our One Hour Group Club workshop on November 4th or December 10th in Hughson.  Click on Holiday Etiquette for more details on our Events Page or call A+ Dog Training at 209-985-7898.

Don’t Let Your Dog Walk You


According to the CDC, tens of thousands of people end up in the ER every year because of pet-related falls.  Many of the falls can happen during a walk with your best friend.  The best way to make sure that your dog doesn’t take you down is to call A+ Dog Training.  We will walk with you and your dog around your neighborhood in Turlock or Modesto and show you how to prevent a four-legged hazard.

Pet Therapy Goals?


Our Labrador volunteers his time visiting patients at a convalescent home in Turlock.  They don’t require a certification.  If this is something that you are interested in and are wondering if your dog is a good fit, have A+ Dog Training visit your dog and train you to achieve your goals.

Dogs at a Human Party

Racer from Modesto would like to remind everyone that the holidays are fast approaching.  Don’t keep your dog locked in the bedroom while family and friends come to visit.  Let your dog know that they’re a part of the family too!

A+ Dog Training would like to invite you to join a One Hour Group Club that will teach you and your dog how to peacefully get through the holiday parties.

There are two dates to choose from but only a limited space available so call Tom at 209-985-7898 today!

Saturday, November 5th or Saturday December 10th (12:00 – 1:00 p.m.)  Cost is $25/dog.  See Calendar of Events for more details.

More Treats for Clients

Enjoying lettuce wrapped burgers at Habit after the Bully Boo Walk.

We spent Sunday in Fresno for the Fresno Bully Rescue’s Annual Bully Boo Walk.  There were a lot of great dog costumes, a fun walk, and many vendors.  A+ Dog Training is always thinking about our clients, so we tried to pick up as many treats and goodies the vendors were giving out so that we could share them with you!

Train Your Dog Before the Holidays

Taylor & GiGi Oct. 2016

As much as we all love dog kisses, not all of the company coming to our homes for the holidays will.  That’s why A+ Dog Training is bringing you a new One Hour Group Club called Holiday Etiquette!

There are two dates and only seven spots available for our Holiday Etiquette Workshop.  This hands-on training is located at a home in Hughson to practice real-life experiences.  Work on welcoming your guests at the door without your dog barking or bolting out.  Train your dog to practice their manners while lounging in the living room.  Keep your dog at a Stay while eating Thanksgiving dinner at the table.

November 5th or December 10th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.  $25 per dog (only one dog per handler).

Call Tom at 209-985-7898 and join one of the One Hour Group Clubs today!

Fall Toxins for Dogs


The beginning of fall brings new seasonal objects that can pose a threat to the safety of our dogs.  Please be aware of mushrooms, red maple leaves, candy & sweets, and Halloween glow sticks.
