AHS Launches a Series of Dog Training Seminars
Dog Training Seminars Now Available at AHS!The Arizona Humane Society has launched the first of many Dog Training Seminars in April and we are super excited to offer the community affordable education on various topics like reactive dogs, shy dogs, separation anxiety and dog enrichment! Want to learn more about one of these topics? Check out these upcoming human-only seminars! Taming Separation Anxiety Seminar (Wednesday, April 19, 2017): Many dogs struggle when they are left alone. For some, boredom leads to discomfort. For others, being alone can spark panic that includes barking, destruction and self-harm. This seminar will discuss dogs on both sides of the “home-alone” spectrum and offer solutions for making a dog more comfortable when the family is out. Reactive Rover Seminar (Saturday, April 29, 2017): Start your pet off on the right paw with a basic training class that encourages and reinforces the right behavior! We will learn the commands sit, down, stay, come, and leave it, as well as loose leash walking, getting focused and not jumping on people. You will learn useful tips for how to focus on you and not other distractions Dog Enrichment Seminar (Saturday, June 3, 2017): Learn creative techniques to provide physical and mental stimulation for your dog, even when faced with limited resources and/or money. Attendees will learn how to utilize the 5 senses through activities for rainy days and hot summer days. Enrichment builds confidence in shy dogs, dogs with medical injuries, senior dogs and reactive dogs. Other services offered by AHS' Dog Training program:
