Dog Enrichment Workshop

Hello and Happy New Year!

Barley’s and Emily Strong with Pet Harmony have teamed up to provide an exciting list of dog enrichment workshops that we will be offering this Winter. The first workshop in the series is called Using Enrichment to Survive the Winter. This 2 hour class will be held at Barley’s on Sunday January 26th from 4pm-6pm. The cost is $50 per person, which includes one dog. (1 dog per person please)

To sign up, please email Emily Strong at emily@petharmonytraining.com

You do not want to miss out on this event!

Does your dog get restless in the winter? Pacing, whining, barking, more destructive, or generally climbing the walls? Do they drive you crazy? You’re not alone! Winter can be tough for dogs (or humans) who don’t love to be outside in the cold and snow. Fortunately, there are a lot of things you can do to combat winter restlessness! In this workshop we’ll learn a lot of tips, tricks and skills for surviving the winter, including:

* how to do preference tests to figure out what your dog likes most
* indoor sports you can do at home
* games that wear out your dog’s brain
* teaching dogs how to relax on cue
* management strategies to keep everyone sane

For tickets, questions and/or concerns, email Emily Strong at emily@petharmonytraining.com

October Dog Training Workshops

We have two fantastic upcoming dog training workshops coming up this month:

October 20th @ 2:30pm – 3:30pm
Feisty Fido Workshop $30
Does your sweet, friendly pooch turn into Cujo once the leash is on? Barking, lunging, displaying scary out of control behavior at the sight of other dogs or people? Leash Reactivity is an increasing problem with companion dogs, and one that is frequently misunderstood. Reactive behavior is often mislabeled as aggression – leading to improper training techniques and less and less time outside of the home. A downward spiral… but not one that can’t be undone!
Getting out for walks and adventures can be a huge challenge for those who have leash reactive dogs. This workshop will cover behavior modification information to help owners of leash reactive dogs understand the behavior, what causes it, and how to develop a plan to help them shake off those Cujo-like behaviors, making walks with your dog as pleasant and stress free as they are supposed to be!  This workshop is just for the humans, no dogs please.

October 20th @ 4pm-5pm
Intro to Nose Work $30
Dogs love to read the world using their nose, that’s just how they roll. The activity/sport of nose work isn’t “work” at all for dogs, it’s the love of their life, and they want to introduce YOU to all they can do! Join us at Barley’s for an intro class on K9 Nose Work, learn about your dog’s olfactory world and how you can use this natural instinct to boost playtime, alone-time and training time for all dogs of any age and any breed.
Class requirements: Collar or harness w/6’ lead. No previous obedience classes necessary.

Call today to reserve your spot! 801-467-6069

The Urban CGC title recognizes those dogs who are well trained and have good manners in a public setting. This test can be taken after a dog completes the AKC CGC or at the same time.

AKC Urban CGC requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyond in an urban setting. As with Canine Good Citizen, AKC Urban CGC has a 10-step test of skills that dogs must pass to earn the official AKC Urban CGC title. This is a title that appears on the dog’s title record at AKC.

The class covers all of the items on the test with practice in an urban setting. We will meet at various locations, near to Barley’s, such as public parks and dog friendly businesses.

Training for the standard CGC Test can be done along with the Urban class, for an additional fee of $25.
