A dog may be man's best friend, but before he can be best man at a wedding, he must learn to stop slobbering on children and giving toasts that are nothing but barks. Teach your dog the rules of gentlemanly conduct with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a one-hour personal dog-training session from Positive Rewards (a $30 value). Sessions will take place at Boofy's Best for Pets.
Positive Rewards owner Angela Buckley specializes in strengthening the lines of communication between humans and dogs. During the training session, Buckley—a graduate of the Animal Behavior College certified in dog training, vet assisting, dog and cat CPR, and certifying things—employs positive reinforcement techniques while working with flippant Fidos and their discipline-desperate owners.
The puppy instruction course covers basic commands such as stay, down, and come, and this training can help thwart problematic behaviors such as nipping or excessive poker playing. To qualify for Positive Rewards training, dogs must be at least 5 months old.
