Bleeding Backwards Through Time

Have you ever had a Monday through Friday job that you hated? Did you dread getting out of bed Monday morning? Sometimes Sunday nights can start getting depressing. Then pretty soon just waking up on Sunday knowing it’s your last day off can also get depressing. After a while you might even start dreading Sundays on Saturday night.

A kinder, gentler way to handle your dog's behavior issues
Brought to you by Puddin's Training Tips

Fix common dog issues like digging, jumping, nipping, barking, leash pulling etc. using humane methods. There is no need to knee your dog in the chest, threaten him/her with newspaper, nor throw a can of pennies at your pet.

Class is scheduled for 1 hour and 15 minutes  and the format will be determined by the desires of the participants - question/answer, guided discussion or prepared lecture. This is an information only class. Please do not bring pets to class.

Everyone is invited but parents who live with dogs who might have aggression or biting issues should consult a professional. This class will also cover what to look for when choosing a professional.
