Have you ever been sitting at a restaurant and look over to see people relaxed, laughing and chatting, while their dogs snooze under the table? Do you wish that was you and your dog? Our Social Outings classes are the perfect way to build your confidence and teach your pup proper manners in public.
Feeling embarrassed that your dog pulls or barks, getting frustrated that he won’t stop jumping on you, or being afraid that he will behave badly, are all normal feelings! Our class is designed to get you over the hump so you feel comfortable no matter what is going on. Social Outings builds on obedience at the start of every class, so the dogs become focused, burn off excitement, and then it becomes easy for them to hang out while you relax. We often hear from owners that they are afraid to sign up for class because they don’t want their dog to mess up. But it’s ok to mess up! In fact, that’s what class is designed for. If you never mess up, you never learn. A trainer is present at all times to guide you through and help it be a fun experience. We embrace mistakes, learn what to do, and then keep moving forward. Come to class ready to learn, make mistakes, and have fun!
You can sign up for any of our Social Outings classes today. All dogs are welcome and there is no prerequisite to register. Classes are at various locations throughout the triangle on Sundays at noon or Wednesdays at 7.
