If you are unable to attend, we will stream the event on Facebook Live. Login into your Facebook account and go to the Grace Dog Training & Behavior page. The Facebook Live event will start promptly at 2p. You can also rewatch it at your leisure after the event is over.

We will need a few dogs at the event to work with and to show demonstrations. Please call ahead to reserve a spot for your Rescue or Shelter Dog. If you have not reserved a spot, please do not bring dogs without approval to this event.

This workshop is for “regular dogs” or for the average rescue who has some challenges with impulse control, jumping up, potty training, mild resource guarding or is mildly under socialized. This event is not for dogs that fight or bite other dogs or people. This is not an event for a dog that may be to anxious or over aroused at a seminar or workshop.

Ana will be addressing many questions, so please bring them! Our goal is for you to have more information and useful training tools when the event is over. With great education comes great adoptions that stick. You are the loving strength that helps so many dogs.
