Happy Tongue Out Tuesday, Love: Ammo

Tongue Out Tuesday is of Ammo during our wedding photo shoot at Stanislaus State. Our wedding anniversary is this Thursday.

Because of our commitment and love for A+ Dog Training, we took our board & train dog with us to Geiger’s Fine Jewelry in Turlock, California, today so that GiGi could pick out “something nice”.

Ellyie the “Guard Dog” Yorkie wasn’t there. We miss training her and will pop into their store in hopes that we can pet her and say hello.
And since this Thursday is our anniversary date, we’ll celebrate with dinner after all of the private training sessions and Elementary class.

From our hearts to yours, Happy Tongue Out Tuesday!

Mahalo Means Thank You!

So far this year we’ve had 29 clients receive gives in appreciation for their referrals!  Will you be number 30?

Remember, sharing your dog stories that involve A+ Dog Training and word-of-mouth referrals is the best way we keep our business going.  We always get excited and “wag our tails” when someone comes to us because they heard (or saw) success stories from you!


We Saw JJ

We were on our way to run an errand at Wells Fargo in Turlock, California when we see a German Shepherd out front.  Tom automatically says, “Hey, that looks like JJ.”  We haven’t seen JJ in over a year.  Sure enough, JJ is just as happy to see Tom as Tom is to see JJ.  He is such a good boy.

Kids Can Train Dogs Too

While Tom works with the Mom of the house, GiGi works with all four children (ages 3, 4, 5, & 6). Look for a couple of video clips on A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page.  The 5-year-old and 3-year-old show how they’ve worked on Sit with their dog Cooper. GiGi taught them how to use their command voice, treat the dog with an open hand and with gentle pets, then follow up with their praise voices!

On Patriots’ Day

We will never forget.  Let’s take time out of our night to pray for the survivors from 17 years ago.  May the Lord bless America and the brave first responders who worked tirelessly searching for survivors.  We remember the working dogs that smelled so much death and destruction on that day.  We pray for peace – a peace that surpasses all.

Providing Peace at the Dog Park

For those of you that are wanting to take your dog to a dog park but aren’t sure about it, I’ll post some pictures of the signs/rules posted at the Dog Park on Countryside Drive in Turlock, California.  They will be on A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page tonight at 8:00 P.M.

A+ Dog Training can join you at the park as one of your “Out on the Town” sessions to help alleviate some stress that goes along with dog park trips.

We also hold monthly Puppy Socials which is like a puppy dog park workshop in a controlled environment where we show you what good play and bad play is.

Another technique is to bring our Labrador, Ammo, to your house to see if your dog is ready to play with other dogs.

Again, at A+ Dog Training we use techniques to fit the need of the dog.  Every dog learns differently and every owner handles things differently.  Whether you are ready to take your dog to the park now or want to slowly gain the confidence to socialize your dog with other dogs, we can help!  Call us today for a free consultation to discuss more about your goals.
