Husbandry Project – FREE

Teach your dog to tolerate and eventually love handling and husbandry procedures and help them become an active, willing participant in these experiences.  You will learn how to teach your dog to accept (and even enjoy) grooming, nail trims, handling, ear drops, eye drops, taking pills and other common medical procedures.

We will be working through the Academy for Dog Trainer’s Husbandry Project training plans which you can download for free.

You can work through these exercises on your own but if you are even a little like me 😊, sometimes working on your own means constant procrastination.  If you would like to have a community of dog owners to be accountable to, to learn with and to learn from, join our free LIVE zoom sessions starting Thursday June 18th at 6:00 pm.  The class will run once every two weeks through to the end of August.

Husbandry Project Starting Thursday June 18  and then every 2nd week 6:00 – 7:00 pm 6 weeks
