Canine Companionship

with Something to Wag About


Class is canceled

Having trouble with your dog at home? You and your dog can join Margaret Brooks in a canine companionship course. This course will go over basic obedience, grooming schedules, safe handling, body language. You will learn far more than just “sit”. As a dog guardian, you will walk away with a training and management plan to apply at home. In this course, you will learn how to connect with your dog on a deeper level, from handling to what type of exercise is best for your dog. You will learn some basic commands that best fit your lifestyle. You will also learn about what grooming schedule is best for your dog and how to maintain a healthy skin and coat. A clicker will be provided for you; however, a treat pouch and treats will be required. We will have some to purchase here at the facility and can loan one while in class if needed. We look forward to helping you and your canine grow as a team!  This is an in-person class.  Proof of Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations required upon registration.

This course is instructed by Margaret Brooks of Something to Wag About. She received her first dog at the age of nine and hasn’t stopped learning about them since. She has worked in local dog businesses from pet stores to dog grooming. Her wide range of experience and knowledge make her a perfect instructor for this course. Margaret owns a great dane, a terrier and a black lab. She has cared for all shapes and sizes of dogs over her five years of experience in the industry. She is currently the Doggy daycare manager at Something to Wag About. Margaret is a Fear Free certified groomer and doggy daycare attendant. She is pet safe first aid and cpr certified. She is also completing a dog training course through the Karen Pryor Academy.
