Have fun with your training.
Try taking your dog to Pet Supplies Plus in Turlock for socialization. Our Labrador, Ammo, walked right by the line of dogs out front waiting for their vaccinations. We walked through the aisle of treats and worked on Leave It. Then we checked out the Igloo Crates. Giving your dog the Kennel command and watching them obey and trust you is a great feeling!
Life Application: When traveling this summer with your dog, you might have to put them into a crate or kennel that they are not familiar with. Instead of struggling by pushing and pulling your dog in, use your Kennel command that you’ve practiced at Pet Supplies Plus on weekends!
Moose is becoming that lovable service dog that his handler wants and needs. GiGi was so proud of Moose’s training that she had to take a selfie with him!
Your dog can be well trained if you keep up with the homework that Tom gives you. The more consistent you are with your training, the more obedient your dog will be.
Charlotte, like her Blue Nose Pit Mix brother Thor, is an A+ Lifetime member. With unlimited classes, she’ll master NOT running away in no time!
Akila is sporting her pink bed and working on Stay at home.
Keep working on Stay at home and for longer amounts of time. Then sign up for one of our spring dog obedience classes and practice Stay at Four Seasons Park in Turlock where there will be so many outside distractions to work with. By summer, you’ll be confident and ready to take your dog on family trips!
As Ambassador of A+ Dog Training, our Labrador named Ammo is sporting the new class medals each dog will receive after completing our High School Class. You and your dog must always think safety first! Imagine being able to stop your dog from crossing a busy and noisy street by a single motion of your hand. Train your dog to stay in one place around crowds. High School classes are offered at Four Seasons Park in Turlock this summer. Visit our Calendar of Events Page for more details.
Whether it’s in Turlock, Modesto, or Hughson puppies are always sticking their tongues out at Tom when he tries to take their picture! Call A+ Dog Training for a free consultation and meet Thomas Lee. He’s a Military K9 Handler Veteran and his integrity stands out above the rest. He’ll train your family and your dog on how to communicate well with each other in order to have a peaceful home. Puppies might stick their tongue out at him, but the humans in the house will be all smiles!
First Time Down Stairs 03.12.17
Here’s a video clip of Moose going down the stairs for the first time. He did not know what to do and kept trying to jump to the bottom while skipping a few steps. Eventually he’ll learn that as a working service dog, he’ll need to slowly descend and help his handler. But first things first…introduction to stairs! March 12, 2017
Thucydides the Doberman is on our special A+ Lifetime Membership. As Thucydides the Historian would say, “The secret to happiness is freedom… And the secret to freedom is courage.” With his lifetime program, this dober will learn how to use his courage and resolve his separation anxiety issues.
March is Jethro’s birthday month. Happy birthday, Jethro! Love, A+ Dog Training.
