Dog training teaches pups how to control their feral impulses through good behavior, and how to refine their poker games by having every player wear a monocle at the table. Civilize your furry companion with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a dog-training package for one day from Good CitiZen Dog Training in Fife (a $60 value). The company will travel within a 10-mile radius of Fife to pick up dogs between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., and will drop them off between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Otherwise, dogs can be dropped off at the training center at 10 a.m. or later, and picked up by 3 p.m.
CityDog Magazine columnist Deborah Rosen and Katie McGlassion employ positive, reward-based methods to teach dogs basic obedience and address behavioral issues in a personalized day-training program. Throughout the day, four-legged friends receive at least 30 minutes of intensive, one-on-one instruction with an experienced pooch whisperer, honing skills such as leash walking, house training, and basic commands such as "sit," "stay," and "fetch the scuba gear."
The session can be tailored to address a dog's specific behavioral problems, as canine coaches aim to correct hyperactivity, separation anxiety, or off-key barking. After hounds enrich their minds in the ivory tower of academia, they can play, romp, or hold paws under the watchful eye of staff, until returning home in the evenings to their bipedal families.
