Veterans Helping Veterans

Mike Ritland is a Navy Seal Veteran and author who, like Tom from A+ Dog Training in Turlock, transitioned what he learned as a U.S. K9 handler to dog training in the civilian life.  Tom & GiGi had the honor to listen to Mr. Ritland speak at Modesto Junior College last Monday.

Happy Veteran’s Day to all who serve our great country.  We couldn’t be prouder!

One Hour Club

Ok, it is cold enough here in Turlock, CA.  I finally added the last bit of pictures from August’s Pool Social to our Facebook Page.  Don’t forget to check it out!

A+ Dog Training’s One Hour Club is a private session catered to the host.  Invite your friends with dogs to your choice of place and host a training session that your dog – and their companions – can benefit from.

‘Tis the season for family gatherings and hosting holiday parties.  Wouldn’t it be nice for a change to see all of our relatives’ dogs get along peacefully?  After all, it’s the season of peace, joy, and memories!  You can host a “trial run” of having dogs at your house as though the family was coming over.  We’ll give you tips on when to let the dogs loose or put them in another room to relax.  We’ll train the dogs to be away from the dining table and from Uncle Fred’s spoiling hands with fatty leftovers that are toxic for your dog.  And if you can’t find enough friends or family members that could meet for your One Hour Club, don’t worry, we’ve got lots of clients that would love to attend.

Call Tom for more details at 209-985-7898.

A Dynamic Duo

Meet Ty, a black Labrador training with his sister, Sage the Shepskie, on playing nicely together.  Ty heard about A+ Dog Training through Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital in Turlock.  Sage is working very hard on not stealing Ty’s food.  Thank you, MVSH, and welcome to our pack family, Ty & Sage!

Exquisite Earl

Holli with Earl completed A+ Dog Training’s Elementary Class this past September in Turlock.  Some of you from the class might remember this little Shih Tzu – Lapso Apso mix constantly barking during class.

Holli signed up Earl on our beneficial Calm Canine program.  Tom knew that exposing Earl to other dogs is the best way to eliminate his obsessive barking and had Earl jump right into a class.  Earl couldn’t stay too long in class because Tom didn’t want him to be too stressed out and they have since been privately training where he gets all the one-on-one attention he needs.  We can’t wait to see Earl in another class after winter so be on the lookout for his progress!

With A+ Dog Training’s Calm Canine program two classes are combined with multiple private training sessions.  Call today to see if this program is right for you!


Pearl in the Pool

Pearl, the wire-haired Griffon, wants to show off her water skills with you!  Pearl joined A+ Dog Training on a One Hour Group Club:  Pool Party in August.  This was her second time this summer at our Turlock pool party and she is really a great swimmer.

Visit Pearl on A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page and search for the August 2017 Pool Social Album.

Share Your Peace With Others

It’s the first Saturday in November which means there are only seven Saturdays left until Christmas.  People are rushing and have many things on their mind so traffic is horrendous…yes, even for us in Turlock.

Aren’t you glad Tom from A+ Dog Training comes to you?  He makes dog training hassle free.  You don’t have to rush to get home from work, scarf down some food, load up your dog, and meet a trainer at their facility.  You can schedule your training after work and after dinner.  Tom will meet you at your door with a calmness and peace that only he can bring, and share that with your excited dog.

Can you relate?  Have you driven home from work or after secret holiday shopping trips from the kids and was grateful that A+ Dog Training was coming to you?  If so, please share that with someone else who has a dog.  It’s the best way that you could show A+ Dog Training your appreciation!

Here’s to a peaceful and stress-free holiday season!

Kindergarten Graduates

We hope that these Kindergarten graduates have learned a thing or two to prepare them for the holidays.  We also hope to see them graduate all the way through A+ Dog Training’s High School classes in Turlock, CA!

Our next Kindergarten class should be sometime in mid-January 2018.  Please keep checking back on our website for more details.
