Ever wanted to bring your pooch to the bar? Unsure how to prepare them in order to make sure the outing is safe and enjoyable for both you and your dog?
Join the Kentucky Humane Society’s behavior manager Kat Rooks and Edwin Ramirez of Edwin’s Canine Academy for Lagunitas Beer with a Dog Trainer Pint Night!
This one hour event will be held at Hilltop Tavern (1800 Frankfort Ave) on Thursday, February 22 at 7 pm. During the event Kat and Edwin will discuss how to have a well-behaved dog at the bar!
Afterwards, they will answer attendee’s questions and provide access to resources to take home and start practicing.
Basic outline of topics to be discussed:
• Foundation skills (sit, settle, hand target) and how to proof them at home to prepare for going out in nice weather
• What to bring/do to set yourself up for success (Kong, treats, leash, plan for short trips and be ready to bail out if your dog struggles)
• Redirecting into appropriate behavior instead of focusing on “no” for undesirable behavior (ex: sit to greet instead of “no jump”)
• What dogs might not enjoy a trip to the bar and how to seek help (shy/fearful, reactive, etc.)
