Cooperative Care for Better Veterinary & Grooming Visits

Click! Pawsitive Family Pet Center, 1858 W. Grand River Okemos

April 4th - May 9th
Thursdays at 5:15 PM

6 week course
Cost: $195

Cooperative care (CC) is training a dog to actively participate, or consent, to their care so that no force or restraint is needed! Instead of forcing dogs to only tolerate, or worse case they do NOT tolerate, invasive procedures we perform on them, we can flip the script and empower them to work cooperatively with us! CC is important for keeping your dog comfortable and calm while allowing your pet professional (vet, groomer, etc) to perform their job while maintaining a trusting relationship with your pup! CC covers many areas, but we will be focusing on vet care (exams, vaccines), grooming (bath, nail trims, brushing, ear cleaning, clipping), putting on their own gear, taking pills, body handling and more! Our ultimate goal is to have dogs who are relaxed and calm for procedures that will benefit their health and well-being. This class is appropriate for dogs of all ages and skills!

The Awkward Phase: Living with your Adolescent Dog

March 10th
Sundays at 12pm

6 week course
Cost $195

As your dog is learning to become an adult and gain independence, they will likely become more independent and push the boundaries. During this adolescent stage, undesirable behaviors may worsen if your dog isn't being guided in the right direction with positive reinforcement training.

This class is for dogs between 8 months and 2 years old who are jumping up on people, pulling on the leash, busting through doors, and exhibiting over-the-top rambunctiousness. Although these behaviors are normal and expected during this phase, you will learn methods to address them in a productive, positive, and fun way.

We will use foundational behaviors such as focusing on handler, targeting, "leave it," and settling on a mat to help with an array of issues including distractions, jumping up, and chewing on inappropriate items.
