Take Advantage Of A Free Dog Training Session!

November 25th, 2019 by

If you’re a dog owner around the East Stroudsburg area we have great news for you: David Henon, a local, well-certified trainer will be offering a free training session on December 7 at 3:00 p.m. at the Day Street Community Center! If you have a new puppy who needs to start training or even an older dog who could use a refresher or never attended lessons as a pup, bring them to this free starter-session.

Dog Training Basics

In the free session, David will cover basic commands such as sit and stay, and how these commands can help solve many behavior issues your furry friend may be having. At the session, David will also discuss the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification more in-depth.

To attend the session, your dog should be human and dog-friendly. If your dog is struggling with aggression, it can be discussed with David in a one-on-one session.

Canine Good Citizen Certification

The CGC is a two-part dog training course that helps you and your dog master 10 basic skills such as accepting a friendly stranger, coming when called, and reacting to another dog. The certification is great for any breed or age of dog, because yes, you really can teach an old dog new tricks!

Obtaining your Canine Good Citizen certification has more benefits than just a well-trained dog. More insurance companies are offering discounts on Homeowner’s insurance for having a CGC dog, and apartment/condo complexes often look favorably on potential tenants who have a CGC trained pup.
