My Little Pony is an entertainment franchise developed by Hasbro which is marketed primarily to girls. It started as a line of plastic pony toys developed by Bonnie Zacherle, Charles Muenchinger and Steve D'Aguanno which have been produced since 1983. The ponies feature colorful bodies, manes and a unique symbol on one or both sides of their flanks. These are referred to in the two most recent generations as "cutie marks." My Little Pony was revamped at least four times with new and more modern looks to appeal to a new market.

Pit Bull Parenting Workshop

 Pit Bull Parenting

American pit bull terriers and similar looking breeds, such as American bulldogs, American Staffordshire terriers, and mixes of the above mentioned breeds, face public scrutiny and discrimination. While popular as pets, pit bulls are more likely than any other breed of dog to become homeless--and brought to an animal shelter--in our community.

In the Pit Bull Parenting Workshop we will share information about training, exercise, and home management for these highly intelligent and athletic canines so they may be good ambassadors for their breed and remain safely in their homes.

Some of the topics we will cover:

  • Establishing leadership using positive reinforcement.
  • Utilizing life rewards.
  • Incorporating fun and games for training and exercise.
  • Building successful relationships between children and family dogs.
  • "Management" and how to use it to enhance training.

Please do not bring your dog to the workshop.

Rocket Recall - Springfield Mon May 11th

50 minute, three week course. 

Due to the Memorial Day holiday, this class will end on Monday June 1st and skip Monday May 25th.

Does your dog like to play "catch me if you can" games when it's time to come back in her house? Would you like to be able to take your dog on an off leash hike and know that he will reliably come when called? Has your dog ever slipped through a door or gate and run out into the street, ignoring your frantic attempts to get him to come back?

This three week intensive is all about teaching a reliable recall - coming when called, in the face of a variety of distractions. Teaching your dog to reliably come when called not only makes your time with your dog more enjoyable, but it can be a lifesaver if your dog get's loose at any point in time due to a dropped leash or an open door.

There must be a four dog minimum in order to hold the class. Classes may be canceled within 24 hours if this minimum is not met.

REFUND POLICY

If you register for a training class or workshop and need to cancel, a full refund will be offered if the cancellation notice is received no later than 48 hours before the class start date. Registration payments will be nonrefundable with less than a minimum of 48 hours notice.
