Welcome to September!!

Can you believe it? This year is 3/4 of the way gone.  It disappeared right before my eyes.

Good Dog Fetch had a fun summer with lots of puppy training and puppy socialization play groups. There will be a few more play dates before it gets to cold for the pool. If you have a puppy that has been seen by me in either a private session or class this last 6 months, you can email me with a request to add your puppy to the puppy play list.



I am getting so many great articles in my inbox. I thought I’d share this terrific article on Dog Related Injuries. Do you know how most folks get hurt when walking their dogs? Dogs pulling on the leash!

Now is the time to get signed up for classes so you do not end up with a Dog Related Injury! Let’s get you and your pups on board for loose leash walking, a really nice recall (come) and no jumping on guests. The holidays are approaching and there will be lots of company coming over. Time for that no jump training indeed.

There are also lots of fun 1 hour workshops and gatherings on the horizon. Watch my webpage or facebook page for whats happening when.

  • Do you want to reinforce sit/down stays? And neutrality around other dogs? Come play Dog Bingo!


  • What to meet up with some other dog loving folks and their dogs to socialize and learn a few new things to help engage your dog? Come join us for Wine, Wags and Wisdom (Friday, Sept 14),  Hounds, Howls and Hoots, (Oct date to be determined), Mutts, Mimosas and Musings, (Nov date to be determined) and Pups, Poinsettias, & Ponderings (Dec. dates to be determined)


  • New toy making classes are being scheduled as I write this. So much fun!


Check out the class page for what is coming up. Beginning Manners, Continuing Manners starting Sept 16.

I can’t wait to see everyone.

Happy Training!
