Free demos, advice & treats from The Pooch Coach!


Agenda for the Meetup:   


12:00 – 12:30 12:00 – 12:30 (Pooch Coach Clients only) Polite dog greetings.
We will continue the exercises of walking our dogs by other dogs to practice calmness & not reacting.


12:30 – 1:00 One-on-one coaching for Pooch Coach Clients.

Note: 12:00 – 1:00 is for Pooch Coach clients ONLY!


1:00 – 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.


She’ll discuss the importance of indoor & outdoor training and show how to get your dog to do this: Watch Musik perform commands in a new neighborhood from several yards away – when she was barely 6 months old.
