It’s a Good Thing They’re Cute! What to do when your puppy starts driving you crazy.

October 15, 2020 @ October 15, 2020 - October 15, 2020


Thursday, October 15  @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at HOME!

Ah, puppy smell… But then there’s puppy teeth. And poop. And pee. And jumping, whining, barking, biting at your clothes, destroying your favorite shoes, rug, blinds, sofa. Trainers routinely get panicked and frustrated calls from humans wondering what happened to their cute, sweet, snuggly puppy, and what to do with this mouthy, crazy critter wreaking havoc in the home.

In this single session, fast-paced, online class, we’ll cover basic puppy development and needs, as well as how to manage and modify behavior, improve potty training, stop the biting, and start enjoying your dog again. There will be handouts, resources, and plenty of time for Q+A.

Laurel Saville is a certified, professional dog trainer with a certificate in Applied Animal Behavior. Her specialty is teaching humans of all ages how to better understand and communicate with the dogs in their lives. Laurel has volunteered with several rescues and shelters, taken specialized training in modifying aggression, led a team working with shy and fearful dogs at the Seattle Animal Shelter, and actively pursues ongoing professional education. An engaging, informative, and entertaining instructor, she’s committed to helping her students have more fun and fulfilling relationships with their dogs.

This class will be presented via Zoom, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of home!  This class is FREE.  Registration is required.  Registrants will receive a link to the Zoom meeting in the days before the event.
