Flirting with the Holidays Pooch Parade

Autumn is here and the holidays are just around corner!  What better reason to get your dog out to sniff around Downtown, learn something new and have a patio for us all to relax on after! 

It brings me great pleasure to announce Bark & Clark's year end Pooch Parade!

Please join us for the Flirting with the Holidays Pooch Parade on November 14th @ 7:00pm

The evening will start with me, Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Tamara Clark, leading your pooches through the bustling streets of the Historical Core.  We will stop in at Pussy & Pooch for some Pawbar time for your dogs and then through the city we will go for our educational romp.  As usual, the evening will conclude with a chance for the humans to sit down, unwind and enjoy wonderful conversation at the dog friendly, Portofino Cucina.  So fun!  

Besides the obvious fun you will have, this is a great chance to learn about how to handle your dog downtown and in general with other dogs and humans.  The Flirting with the Holidays Pooch Parade workshop's focus will be on you dogs socialization with congested city sidewalks, leash control around other dogs and people, and getting your dog's focus on you.  As well, we will have our usual education on the approved potty places and how to get your dog to go there. 
The benefit of working your dog in this environment is it helps reinforce their basic obedience and uses those skills to increase their focus on you - not all the distractions. We'll also work  on manners specific to the city, such as sitting at all intersections before crossing; sitting for introductions and the proper way to greet other dogs. 

We teach uptown manners for Downtown dogs! This class is so fun, it's more like an outing... So let's take a stroll through the city and focus on doggy's ability to deal with the public, the lively city and all the other pooches out and about.

I am so excited about this Pooch Parade, I hope I will see you all there and if you can't be there, I hope you will help spread the word!  

Be sure to RSVP by November 9th because space is limited.  The cost is $40/dog.
