  • Agility Schedule Posted Nov 2016

    October 11, 2016:

    agility

    The next agility schedule has been posted!

    Please note the following changes to agility registration:  we are opening agility classes for registration tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct 12 at 7pm. We are NOT doing a random draw lottery this session. Instead we will allow current students to register first. This means that all current students will get first choice of the classes they want.

    Tomorrow at 7 pm you will receive an email with a password to allow you to log in to a private web page to register. This "members only" registration will be open to you for two weeks. Registration will be public at noon on Wednesday, Oct 26.

    If you are a current student and have not received this information as a direct email, please contact us at info@woofsdogtraining.com so we can make sure you're on the list for tomorrow.

    We hope you will find this process to be easier than the draw, and we anticipate that everyone will be able to register for the classes they want.

    Registration open to current students:  Weds Oct 12 @ 7pm
    Registration open for all students:  Weds Oct 26 @ 12pm

     

  • Winter Workshops Announced

    October 7, 2016:

    Three new workshops have been announced for December. Dogs must have completed (or be currently enrolled in) Puppy Kindergarten or a Basic Obedience class at WOOFS! or a comparable positive reinforcement training center. All workshops will be held at our Ballston campus.

    Saturday December 3rd & 10th, 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
    Does your dogs come to you every time you call them, without fail? This two week intensive workshop will focus on teaching your dog a reliable recall, so that when you call him, he happily comes bounding over to you.
     
    Workshop #1: Saturday December 3rd, 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
    Workshop #2: Saturday, December 17th, 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
    Do you have an enthusiastic greeter? Are you afraid to allow your dog to meet people for fear that he might knock them over? Join us for this one day workshop to teach your dog to sit politely for greetings.
     
    Saturday, December 10th & 17th, 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
    Does your dog pull you down the street on your walks? Or does he constantly stop and sit down? This workshop is a two-week intensive focus on teaching your dog to walk politely on a loose-leash at your side.
