WOOF AND WIFI: Dog training for youth & their pet dogs
Taught by humane educator and dog trainer Paula Ferrel, CPDT-KA, youth participants (ages 11+) will learn the basics of positive reinforcement dog training while engaging their own pet dogs in games, training exercises, and at-home challenges that cover a fun mix of obedience, tricks, and agility. The course is an opportunity for participants and their pet dogs to enjoy quality time at home together, strengthen their relationship, and learn new skills that everyone in the family can appreciate.
Each group class is limited to a maximum of eight dogs and runs for 45 minutes twice a week for three weeks. Registration includes up to 30 minutes of additional one-on-one support from the instructor every week, as well as access to independent learning materials, a video resource library, and a sharing platform to further support participants’ progress. This program is designed as an educational experience for youth and their dogs; it is not meant to address any serious behavior modification you may need for your dog.
Youth Ages: 11+
Sessions: 2, 45-minute group sessions weekly, for 3 weeks
