“If there were more than 5 Stars, I would award them to Your Dog’s Friend! Their mission to help people and dogs so that dogs don’t end up in shelters is terrific. Their classes with only positive rewards and free workshops are marvelous.”

Creating a Work-Flexible Dog

About this Class:

Enrolling for ONLINE classes!

As we all adapt to new working conditions, we are asking our dogs to cope with a lot of changes. This can cause stress for your dog, which can make life harder for you.

Join this three-session class and learn how to help your dog become a more flexible and helpful co-worker! You’ll learn how to manage your household to set everyone up for success, how to train and reinforce your dog to be calm and quiet, and how to teach your dog to spend time alone.

In this live, online class, you’ll receive real-time coaching as you work with your dog, along with guidance tailored to you and your individual dog and environment. You’ll build on skills each week, sharing your progress and learning from other students’ progress.

The skills that you both learn will be useful not only during the current stay-at-home conditions but in the future, no matter what your working situation may look like.
