⚾ Take Them 🐕 Out to the Ballgame! ⚾
On Tuesday, 23 May 2017, the Asheville Tourists are inviting dogs to attend Doggies at the Diamond. Game time is 7PM. A coupon for the event is available at Patton Avenue Pet Company. Our therapy dog Cognac will be heading out to the game to practice her training skills and enjoy the fun. We take every opportunity to practice training skills in all types of unique situations. We encourage any dog training students to attend the game Tuesday to cheer on the Asheville Tourists, practice their training skills and enjoy the fun! Please note that it will be extra challenging because untrained dogs will be in attendance too.
Do you want to take your dog everywhere you are allowed to take them? Do you want to be confident that your dog will be able to navigate all situations, just like a service dog? I receive questions about therapy and service dogs regularly. If you are entertaining the thought of therapy or service dog training and participating in training to some extent, these types of challenges (attending a baseball game) should become no obstacle at all. You and your dog should be able to navigate the crowds in stadiums without any problems or concerns to even consider your dog for therapy work.
Do you like the idea of attending a baseball game or other events with your dog but the mere thought of the adventure sends chills down your spine? If your dog’s training is either non-existent or hasn’t reached this level, please contact us. We will help you get there – one fun challenge at a time!
Game on….. ⚾ 🐶
