January: National Train Your Dog Month

What is National Train Your Dog Month?

“It’s a time when trainers, dog owners, and canine experts come together to celebrate their love for their furry friends by sharing what they know.”  (source)

Training Your Pup

You may have always thought about getting your dog professionally trained. You just haven’t gotten around to it or just don’t know when.

Well how about now! It’s a new month and a new year, and it’s a perfect time to take advantage!

Think About It…Now is a PURRFECT Time!

You are working from home and you have more time to be able to practice implementing what the dog trainer teaches you and Fido. 

Don’t have time? That’s okay, hire a Fire Hydrant Pet Sitter and Dog Walker and we can help you implement your homework from the trainer when you have a Zoom meeting and work to attend.
