A+ Dog Training’s basic obedience class starts tomorrow from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. It will run for the next five weeks at Dale Pinkney Park in Turlock. From Christoffersen Parkway, turn north on Colorado Avenue and east on Moonbeam Way.
Please bring to the Elementary Class your dog on a non-retractable leash, treats, and bags for waste. This park does have potty stations and a drinking fountain. We will provide a bowl of water for the dogs.
August 2017’s Junior High class graduated with flying colors. Check our more pictures from this class at A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page.

It is always important to ask before petting someone’s dog – no matter how much of a dog-lover you are! 😊
But remember that as cute as Moose is, or any service dog for that matter, you have to keep in mind that the dog is working while out in public with their handler and you might want to refrain from petting them. By asking the handler, you could put them in an awkward position of not wanting to deny you your affection for dogs. However, their dog is working and in training while in public. The dog must understand when it is time to relax and get petted, or be on alert for whatever service they help their handler with.
Don’t feel bad for these working service dogs. Believe me, if they are anything like Moose they get lots of love, affection, and treats from their family at home and when they are not working.
So, this post is just a reminder that you must always ask to pet a dog; but, it might be best to not pet a service or working dog when you see them in town.
