July News & Tips

Hello!  Welcome to our July Newsletter.  We hope you enjoy it.



Have you been to an SFDC Meetup yet? People are really enjoying this easy and fun way to learn and practice training tips, meet other dog owners, and have a great time playing with their dogs.


Come out with your dog for some socialization and some fun.  Learn a new trick or 2.   Have a question about your dog’s behavior? The Pooch Coach will be offering free 1-1 advice to attendees.   It’s a great way to practice your dog’s greeting skills with other dogs as well as with humans… All overseen by an expert canine behaviorist.

Here’s a video of people enjoying previous Meetups – hear what they have to say!
