Children and dogs can be a great combination. They enjoy a lot of the same games, can teach each other a lot, and can have a fabulous time together. Unfortunately, children and dogs can also have major misunderstandings, and relationships can sour quickly. Getting (and keeping) Tots+Dogs on the same page can make every parent's life easier, and make everyone in the family safer and happier.
This class focuses on games that Tots(that is kids ages 2-5 years)+Dogs can play together. Each week we play active games, quiet games, practice safety behaviors, and the Tots get to have a snack-break while the Dogs practice self control and not taking things from children.
Parents MUST attend class with their Tots+Dogs. Please bring your whole family, and please wear comfortable shoes with good traction. Please also bring a mat large enough for your tot and his/her dog to sit on, as well as snacks for your tot, treats for your dog, and a leash and either harness or buckle collar for your dog.
Please, no peanuts (or peanut flavored treats) in class!
