The Whys, Hows, and Whens of Fostering

Have you ever thought about opening your home to a rescue pup? Maybe you're not ready for another dog, but a temporary canine visitor sounds like fun. Or maybe you'd like to help out but can't take in a dog full-time. If you're interested in the details of fostering, this seminar will give you all the information you'll need. We will discuss:

  • What exactly does fostering mean?
  • What are my responsibilities as a foster?
  • What should I do to prepare my home and family for my foster pup?
  • What if I have another dog (or kids or cats or birds ...) and how do I introduce them?
  • What are some commands that I can teach my foster pup to help him/her get successfully adopted?
  • And more!

This seminar will be presented by 2SpeakDog's Master Trainer and Behavior Specialist, Jennifer Kyzer, and 2SpeakDog's Large Breed Advisor and Trainer Specializing in Behavior, Kasey R. Herrera. 2SpeakDog will present details on the practical, real-life aspects of fostering. Seminar is lecture only, no pups, please. A question-and-answer session will follow the seminar presentation.

This seminar is only $25 per family/couple! Rescue organzations please contact us for group discounts. Enrollment is required.

 

**When enrolling, only one person per household needs to sign up and pay. If we start to get tight on space, we'll reach out to confirm how many people from your household are attending.

Sixty Minutes ... Physical Training For You ... Skill And Behavioral Work For Your Dog ...

Fetch Fitness is pleased to offer two different opportunities for you and your dog to work out together! The benefits to working out with your dog are many and we'd love to have you join us for one of these great learning and bonding physical and mental fitness options!

Not sure about your dogs ability? You aren't alone. Most of our new faces are apprehansive about joining the group because they are afraid their dog doesn't have the skill level to participate. Well rest assured - if your dog knows sit and down, he can likely participate! Dogs must also have basic leash manners and be generally non-reactive and under owner control while on leash. We will take it from there. That's what this class is for, to enhance your dogs ability while you workout. If you have any questions about whether your dog's behavior or abilities are a fit for class, just ask!

Doga (Doggie Yoga!)

Doga is dogs and humans learning to work together as one, an overall union between beings.. ommm. At 2SpeakDog, we emphasize the art of “getting to the calm”.  This isn’t always as easy as it sounds so that's why Doga is a natural addition to our curriculum. We focus on breathing, stretching, massage (for the dogs), and meditation. The humans work on calming themselves and getting to a balanced state, as dogs mirror the human's calm, balanced energy.  Dogs are attracted to calm, confident, balanced energy and we want our dogs to know that we're the source of that calm for them. Doga is a fantastic way to harness “the calm” without a harness!
