Workshop: Teach your Dog not to Jump- 4 Paws on the Floor
Friday, November 17th, December 1st, December 15th 5:30PM-6:30PM

This workshop is suitable for dogs from 4 months old and older.
We offer this workshop to our clients who have finished at least one of our Something Els Dog School classes, Puppy 1, Puppy 2, Household Obedience 1, Household Obedience 2 class.

Jumping up on people is a natural canine behavior. Dogs get to say hello face-to-face when they jump. Even better, it’s guaranteed to get attention.

However, from a human point of view, jumping to greet is annoying and possibly dangerous. Clothes can get soiled by muddy paws and people, especially seniors and children, can be knocked over. It’s more polite and far safer to teach your dog to greet people appropriately.

Come and join us for this 3-part workshop when we will teach you how to train your dog not to jump on people but how to stay with 4 feet on the ground.
