What You'll Get
Unlike game-show slipups, puzzling pet predicaments cannot be resolved by buying a vowel or calling the manager of an English football team. Stop unruly pet-beasts from causing problems with today's Groupon: for $40, you'll get a six-week behavior-training class and 10% off private, at-home lessons (pricing based on the needs of the dog owner) from the Kentucky Humane Society. Choose to redeem your classes at any of the KHS's five locations (classes are only available at Tom Sawyer State Park in the summer).
With this package, registered pooches can enroll in any $85 weekly class; classes take place once a week for six weeks. Pre-requisites apply for intermediate and advanced classes, and aggressive dogs and barking cats are not permitted. Young canines get schooled on proper dog-park etiquette, including basic commands, loose-leash strolling, and social interaction, at the Positively Puppies class. For dogs more than five months old, the Manners for Life class effaces improper actions (jumping on people), and the Wallflower class pumps up social skills for shy breeds. Intimately sized classes guarantee ample attention. View a complete list of featured courses here.
Kentucky Humane Society classes are currently offered four days a week, and each session runs 60 minutes. Check the schedule to see if additional days will be added. Pet owners can continue to shape their mutts' manners with 10% off private, at-home sessions taught by behavior specialists. A properly trained pup is a joy to take on a walk or introduce to a neighbor, and an attentive dog can be taught to retrieve the paper, mow the lawn, and help you with the daily crossword. Register online with the intended animal's basic information and day-of-the-week preference; all classes must be completed at the same location.
