IMG_1341IMG_1353IMG_1349      On Thursday February 25th we had our free monthly dog training seminar hosted by Dawn Goehring of Animal Biz. This months seminar was all about barking, chewing, and jumping as well as how to positively train you dog to stop these unwanted behaviors and how to teach the correct behavior instead. We learned the importance of mentally exhausting our dogs, how to stop our dogs from eating unwanted items, as well as how to avoid your arm from becoming your dogs next chew toy. Keep an eye out on any of our social media pages to find out what the upcoming seminar topic will be on! Mahalo to everyone who came to the seminar!!
