Recreation Roundup


Dog Behavior workshop to be held Saturday

If you would like a clearer understanding of the reasons behind your dog's undesirable behaviors and solutions for those behaviors, then this workshop is for you. Fulfillment for dogs, sanity for humans is our goal. We achieve this through leadership and the formula of exercise, discipline, then affection as prescribed by Cesar Millan of "The Dog Whisperer" fame. We will begin by discussing dog psychology and the importance of leadership in your relationship with your dog. We then teach you how to walk your dog (not be walked by your dog) to establish leadership. This is followed by addressing your individual problems, and providing solutions that fit your lifestyle.

We will simulate or set up the situations that concern you, and either fix them on the spot or come up with a protocol you can continue, when you go home.

We will continue with questions and answers, demonstrating when needed. Auditors are included in this question/answer portion. The class will be held in Rumsey Park beginning at 4 p.m.

We won't quit until you're satisfied. The fee to pre-register is $125 per pair and $25 for spectators will be collected at the door.
