Does your dog come when called?

No amount of training will make your dog 100% reliable. There is always the risk that your dog will make the choice to not respond. It is possible, however, to increase the chances of your dog responding with constant practice in non-critical situations

Breed of the month: BULLDOG

The Bulldog, also called the English or British bulldog is, not surprisingly, the national dog of England as well as the University of Georgia's football team mascot.

But did you also know that:
  • In 13th century England, this breed earned it's name by bringing down bulls?
  • That when bullbaiting was outlawed in England in 1835, the breed almost went extinct?
  • That despite their small size, bulldogs can weight up to 50 pounds?

Upcoming group classes
Just in time for New Year's resolutions
Is one of your New Year's resolutions to train your dog? Fear not; group classes will be starting on Thursday, Jan. 17 at Red Barn Kennels.

Luvk9s will be offering:
  • Puppy class
  • Basic obedience
  • Agility level I and II
  • Combo class (a little of everything!)
The popular CGC (Canine Good Citizenship) and Intro to Therapy Dog Work class will be offered in March to allow us to work outside with distractions.

Luvk9s will also continue to offer private lessons in North Georiga. Contact us for more information.
