Happy Memorial Day

Columbia State Park Memorial Day

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Weekend.  A+ Dog Training took some time off to hang out at Columbia State Park.  The fox tails are out, but we steered clear.  Temperatures were a bit cooler in Sonora.  Expect high temperatures all week so if you’re not taking your dog with you into the stores, keep your dog at home!  The car is so much hotter and your dog will over heat.

Patterson is Holding a Pack Walk

A+ Dog Training encourages all dog owners to join Westside Animals for Adoption and its  members for a dog walk in downtown Patterson.   A+ Dog Training attends as a family to help gear our dog ready for summer trips out of town.  The more you socialize your dog around other dogs and people, the easier it will be to eat “al fresca” at your favorite restaurant in Modesto or Carmel!  

Walks last for about 45 minutes. Come and go as you please.  Meet behind Patterson Veterinary Hospital, 24 S. 3rd Street. 892-3114. This Saturday,  May 28, is their next walk at 9:00 A.M.

Social Club Hour!!!!!

Spring is starting to turn to summertime.  You know what that means, weather is getting hotter!!!  It is time for the A+ Dog Training Pool Socials.  We would like to do 3 pool socials this summer.  Let us know if you would like to host a pool social at your house.  We will give you details on how you can host a pool social or dog social.  This is a great way to teach your dog to swim and get in/out of the pool while you are meeting new people in the Turlock/Modesto area.

Classes Continue at A+ Dog Training


Yesterday was Elementary’s graduation day.  Today is Junior High’s third class due to rain outs.  It almost looked like it was going to rain today in Modesto and Turlock but class resumed.

Toby would like to remind all dog lovers to sign up your dog for A+ Dog Training’s next classes.  See our calendar of events or check out our Facebook page for more details.

Home Training Outside of Home

Kai at Home Depot

Kai is having fun window shopping for appliances at Home Depot.  The Home Depot in Modesto and Turlock are dog friendly and a great place for you to train your dog.  A+ Dog Training has programs available that include an “Out on the Town” training where we can show you all the fun things you can do to train your dog aside from tricks and basic obedience.

Dog is Sassy at the Camera

Come meet Sassy at Geiger's Jewelry!

Sassy and Tom haven’t trained together in quite a while but she went right up to him and welcomed him like an old friend!  Stop by and visit Sassy and her family at Geiger’s Fine Jewelry in downtown Turlock.

If you’ve been wanting to bring your dog with you to work but there’s just a few things that they could work on to be the perfect coworker, give A+ Dog Training a call.  We are a mobile company and can train you and your dog at your place of work!

Dog Drool to Keep Cool

Ammo's Lips May 12

The weather forecast calls for triple digits by Wednesday in Modesto.  A+ Dog Training is adjusting their schedules to have dog walking services earlier in the morning, indoor personal training during the hottest hours, and taking plenty of breaks during evening classes.

May’s Pack Walk & Puppy Social Canceled

Nola window shopping

Due to the loss of GiGi’s Uncle Andy,  A+ Dog Training will be out of town and May’s Pack Walk and Puppy Social this Saturday is CANCELED.

We still encourage you to take that time and socialize your dog around Turlock.  The Friends of Turlock Animal Shelter is usually in front of Pet Extreme with dogs and cats up for adoption.  Please be mindful when training your dog around them.  Also, make sure that your dog goes potty in the grass area before walking around inside of Pet Extreme.  Home Depot is also dog friendly and dining out on the patios of all the local eateries in that area is acceptable.

We hope enjoy your weekend and will see you June 4, 2016, for the next Pack Walk around CSUS at 9:00 A.M.

Our next Puppy Social at Taylor ER Veterinary will also be on June 4, 2016, at 2:00 P.M.

No, A+ Dog Training does not train cats but we DO train your dog on how to live peacefully with your cat in the home!  This pack is from our Oakdale clientele and Shane is coming along very nicely.

Our programs are catered to your goals.  Whether you live in Modesto and want your dog to stop chasing the cat or you want to take your dog on all of your summer adventures, call A+ Dog Training for a free consultation and get started on achieving set goals!
