Gentle handling

A Seminar for Dog People

Saturday, March 3, 2018, 3:00-4:30 p.m.

This seminar is a gift to the community from Joyful Dog and Hearts in Harmony, so admission is free.

Learn ways to help your dog (and you!) become more comfortable with veterinary handling and grooming. Marnie Montgomery and Kim Miller introduce techniques to help your dog become a willing participant in his own care. We’ll explore:

  • Mani-Pedi Time: Help for those pesky nail trims.
  • Weight Watchers: Getting Fido onto the scale.
  • A Visit to the “Spa”: Washing, clipping, and brushing your dog’s coat.
  • Alternatives to Biting: Teach your dog a new way to say “no, thank you” when he needs a break from a procedure.
  • … and much, much more!

You’re going away?

Turn your dog’s stay into a vacay, with Training and TTouch® from Joyful Dog.

Learn to sit at doors? Refrain from jumping?

Joyful Dog brings its force-free techniques to enrich your dog’s time at Seneca Hill Animal Hospital, Resort & Spa. We’ll work with you to create a plan based on your dog’s needs, and coordinate with resort staff who’ll make sure that the good behaviors we’re working on are reinforced throughout your dog’s stay.

New games and play to stimulate the brain?

Nobody loves play more than we do! We can introduce your dog to foundational skills for sports or obedience, and create mental challenges that use your dog’s natural instincts.

A little extra lovin’ for a nervous dog?

Tellington TTouch® techniques can help to soothe and calm.
