Training Tails Youth Week 2022

 

When: Monday July 11th through Friday July 15th 

Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Age: 11 – 14 years

This is a must for all youth who love dogs.  This weeklong program pairs your youth up with a four-legged friend as they learn firsthand, everything dog. Below is just a taste of what we cover and do.

  • Daily hands-on work with dogs
  • Understand how and practice teaching basic obedience cues.
  • Learn to recognize body language in dogs who are friendly, reactive, stressed, and submissive.
  • Learn how to stop basic behavior issues such barking, jumping, chewing, and house soiling.
  • Learn about and practice dog sports such as agility.
  • Learn about and practice basic fitness needs and how to exercise dogs.
  • Learn to teach a few tricks.
  • Visit from local veterinarian to discuss basic first aid. This is hands on and a lot of fun!
  • Team building games to let the learning minds unwind.
  • Special visit from another species of animal. Interactive time as they learn to use dog training skills with another species.

This program has been a great success and often has youth returning for a second year. We make the learning process a lot of fun, and even test it at the end of the week.  Not to brag, but so far everyone has passed with flying colors. Guess that is easy to do when they enjoy what they are doing 🙂 All dogs will be provided for hands on exercises, games, and drills that are connected with the topic of the day. All supplies needed are provided. Kids should bring a lunch each day. This is a very popular program and fills quickly. We have a limited number of spots so be sure to register today!

This free and fun event is an excuse to get your family and dog out for some fun on the town.  We will hand out cards with hints at 10:45 on the 9th. At 11AM sharp, we will release everyone to race around town in attempt to complete each task. Everything is dog friendly and should be fun. The first two people to finish, return to DOG, and show proof of completion will win the baskets! This event does not require perfect obedience. It will be great for most dogs and families.
