Upcoming Session Start Dates at Gwinnett Animal Hospital
Monday, June 22, 2009 at 7:00PM
This class addresses the basics of good behavior -- sits, downs, loose leash walking, coming when called, targeting, doggie zen. If you've got a pup needing to start out on the right paw, an adult dog who could use a refresher (or who never got around to learning the basics), this is the class for you.
Class meets once per week for 7 weeks. Please wear comfortable shoes with good traction, as we'll be moving around. Bring your dog, your dog's leash and collar or harness, your dog's favorite toy and treats. We recommend bringing a crate for your dog, though this is not required. Your entire family is welcome to come to this class. We ask that all children be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Please note that classes at The Pet Set are held indoors in a climate controlled environment; classes held at Gwinnett Animal Hospital are held outdoors -- rain or shine; classes will be postponed in the event of thunder or lightening
Registration form and proof of vacination is required for all dogs who will be attending the class. Payment must be made in advance (please call for current prices). For classes at The Pet Set, puppies must have had at least 2 sets of shots. For classes at Gwinnett Animal Hospital puppies must have completed their vaccination series.
Playtime is critical for proper social development of puppies. For this reason, all puppies who are signed up for the Behavior Basics class at The Pet Set are also invited to join in +Puppy Playtime for no extra charge. +Puppy Playtime will take place either before or after each class, with details to be given out at the first class in the session. Puppy owners will also be given additional information on socialization and puppy development throughout the class. Due to location restrictions, we cannot offer playtime at our Gwinnett Animal Hospital location.
