The Ark Animal Hospital, Bark @ The Ark Boarding & Groom & Peachtree Dog Training are teaming together to offer our clients the Practical Pet Protocol group classes.

Does your dog need a little schooling on basic obedience, commands and manners? Enroll him/her in The Practical Pet Protocol group obedience classes, brought to you by Peachtree Dog Training and Bark at the Ark!

Starting Wednesday 9/16/15 at 7pm The Practical Pet Protocol will be conducting a six-week comprehensive training course that takes the group class curriculum to a whole new level! Taught by certified and veterinarian-referred trainer, Christina Dore, The Practical Pet Protocol classes will offer you and your dog:

  • How to teach your dog all basic obedience commands, including sit, stay, down, heel, come, and place.
  • How to use these commands beyond class, including our time-tested behavior modification strategy that uses the same commands you’ll be learning in class! This is information you’ll use with every dog you’ll ever own.
  • Real life distractions, including simulations of crowded environments and even a dinner table.
  • Knowledge of how to build a relationship of mutual trust and respect between you and your dog. This is the kind of relationship that allows you to influence your dog’s behavior choices both now and in the future.
  • A 40+ page booklet to reference once you’re back at home, and a mobile app designed to help you practice.

Please understand that for dogs who fit the following criteria would NOT do well in a group class environment (though we’d be happy to help set up a private training plan for you and your dog!):

-Leash reactive dogs (lunging, barking, snarling, etc. at other dogs while on the leash)
-Dogs with existing behavior problems (such as aggression, anxiety, or extreme fearful behavior)
-Dogs younger than 6 months of age

Call today for more information as new group classes will be forming again soon! Group Training will be held at our facility located at 288 14th Street Suite B, Atlanta, Georgia 30318.

New class starts May 1st  
The cost for six weeks of training has been discounted from $235.00 to $185.00.
