Our next Meetup will be:
Saturday, Aug 18, 2018 @ 12 noon – 2:00 PM
at Christopher Playground in SF.


Free demos, advice & treats from The Pooch Coach!

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.


Agenda for the Meetup:   

Please be on time so you do not miss the exercises!


12:00 – 12:20 (Pooch Coach Clients only) Polite dog greetings. We will continue the exercises of walking our dogs by other dogs to practice calmness & not reacting.

12:20 – 12:45 One-on-one coaching for Pooch Coach Clients.


Note: 12:00 – 12:45 is for Pooch Coach clients ONLY!


12:45 – 2:00 Others can join! The Pooch Coach will introduce outdoor & distance commands. She often gets requests for dogs to learn how to come on command (at a dog park), but they are nowhere close to being ready for the task.


12:45 – 2:00Non-Pooch Coach clients can join and get free tips & treats.


1:00 Doggie sock givaway! – 20 lucky dog parents will win a pair of customized dogs socks with a picture of YOUR DOG on them!  Details will be announced on our Facebook and Meetup pages.


As always, Free Professional photos by Soulful Pet Photography.
