Summertime is approaching fast. The kids will be out of school soon and camping and hiking trips are planned.
Wait, there’s only one problem. The kids want to bring the family dog, but Buddy has a few issues. He often runs off when you’re calling him to come, he rarely listens to “sit” or “stay,” and he greets new friends with too much excitement.
So rather than keeping him in the old dog run while you and your family take off for the lake, get Buddy in shape to tag along.
It’s a Dog’s World in Chino, Ca has some interactive classes scheduled for you and your dog this summer.
Most dogs should begin with the Basic Obedience Course, which helps with basic commands and addressing behavior issues. Classes begin Thursday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m.; Monday June 14 at 6:30 p.m.; and Saturday, June 19 at 9 a.m. The course runs for seven weeks and the cost is $125. Our summer special is $15 off.
If your dog is still a pup, simple manners and commands can still be taught. Puppy Kindergarten is for pooches 8-16 weeks, and is a great way to introduce socialization and confidence building. The class is $18 per class or $69 for a four pack. The classes are drop in format and are held Saturdays at 9 a.m., and Tuesdays at 6 p.m. beginning in June. This summer’s special is sign up for four and receive $10 off.
Some proud owners can say their dogs already know the basics of training, so the Intermediate Obedience courses will further their dogs skills and ability. This one is a six-week program and classes begin, Saturday, June 26 at 10 a.m. The cost is $160, but It’s a Dog’s World summer special is $15 off.
A “Good Citizen” test is available for dogs at the end of Intermediate Obedience.
Frisbee fun on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. is another way to bond with your dog. It’s a Dog’s World has a great special on Frisbee classes, including one free class. Dog owners save $10 off enrollment when they enroll for four sessions at their free class.
Rally-O brings obedience to the competitive level. This 6-week course gives your dog experience in the ring without the pressure of being judged. Class begins Wednesday, June 2 at 6 p.m.
Conformation Handling gives you the basics of how to handle your dog in the show ring, this is a beginning course and is perfect for juniors. Classes are Mondays at 7 p.m. and the same Frisbee special applies. Receive one free class and $10 off any package of 4 sessions.
And if your vacation is further or longer and Fido can’t go, now is the perfect time to leave your dog with It’s a Dog’s World, who does all the hard work for you. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a well-trained dog. Call the office for details. Ask about May Specials.
Your dog may be ready for off lease training. Come in for a consultation to see if Fido or Buddy is ready for the next level. Off leash training pays off when the family goes out hiking or to the river.
