Our next pet therapy class is starting on September 27th from 6:15 to 7 pm at Lifetime Pet in Olathe. Class runs for 6 consecutive weeks. The cost is $160. This class does take a commitment. Please make sure the person who is planning on being certified with the dog, is present for all sessions. This is a specialized class for adults only. We will reinforce basic training and work a lot around distractions and noises. Basic training will include extended sit and stay, down and stay, walking on the leash, jumping, come, leave it, drop it, focusing on you in public when distractions are present.
We will work with your dog on greeting people nicely, approaching people in a wheelchair, walker, crutches, and canes. We will also teach your dog to lie on their bed or blanket and relax when people sit by them. This is important if you want to take your dog to libraries or schools for the Read program that Pets For Life offers. On our last session, we will go to Bass Pro to work out in the public. This class fills up fast, so call me at (913) 709-4725 to get enrolled. We only have three spots still available.
Coming soon we will be offering puppy and pet therapy classes in Gardner at Pups N Suds. I will keep everyone updated as details are finalized. They offer grooming, self-wash and full-service baths.
