Last Dog Obedience Classes in 2017 Start Tomorrow

August 2017’s Junior High class graduated with flying colors.  Check our more pictures from this class at A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page.

We will have our last set of classes for 2017 starting this week.  They are all held from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. at a new park location:  Dale Pinkney Park in Turlock, CA.  It’s still not too late to add your dog into the class.  Please call 209-985-7898 for more information.

Please Do Not Pet

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.

Dog Training for Life

Our A+ Lifetime Program is just that, a training program that lasts for the life of your dog.  Because “life happens” and you never know what the future holds or how your dog will adjust,  A+ Dog Training is here for you!  Call 209-985-7898 to set up a FREE consultation and get more details on all of our programs.

August Puppy Social Pictures on Facebook

August 2017 Puppy Social Pictures from Taylor ER Veterinary in Turlock are now posted on A+ Dog Training’s Facebook Page.

Our next Puppy Social will be on Saturday, September 9, 2017, from 2:00 – 3:00 P.M. at Taylor ER Veterinary in Turlock.  The social costs $25 but may be waived depending on Puppy Plan with Taylor ER Veterinary or program with A+ Dog Training.  Call 209-985-7898 for more details.

Get advice from a professional dog trainer, be around other puppy owners that are going through the same things you are, and be able to take a one hour break from the chaos your puppy is causing.  This is when you can take a step back and enjoy watching your puppy interact with other non-fully vaccinated puppies in a controlled environment.  Puppies can teach each other so many things in an hour’s worth of play compared to a week’s worth with their owner.  Let’s make it happen!

Vivi & Bonnie Go To College

A+ Dog Training would like to send Vivi and her dog Bonnie blessings for their first semester away from home.  Bonnie is a part of our A+ Lifetime Program.  Her first trainings were getting Bonnie prepared to join her owner Vivi in college classes amongst other humans and animals.  When Vivi & Bonnie come back for winter break, A+ Dog Training will be here ready to add more skills to her training!  This is why we highly recommend our A+ Lifetime Program to all of our clients.

Have a great semester and we’ll see you soon!
