NEW SCHEDULE, NEW GREAT CLASSES!
At Pup 'N Iron, our goal is to enhance the relationship and bond you have with your dog. That's why we strive to bring the newest and most innovative classes and programming to the Stafford/Fredericksburg community. We are very proud of our February class schedule as it includes (5) FIVE brand new classes that we know will be both fun and relationship building.
1. FOUNDATIONS FOR DOG SPORTS - Dog sports are some of the most fun activities to participate in with your dog. Who doesn't watch agility, rally, nosework or competition obedience and think to themselves, "can my dog do that?" The answer is YES! Most dogs can be successful in competitive sports with the right foundation skills. This class introduces and improves skills such as targeting, distance work, off lead work, attention, focus and impulse control - all necessary skills to be a successful sports team
2. PLAY WITH YOUR DOG - Personal play time can be some of the most relationship building and bonding time you can spend with your dog. But how do you play in a way that is both positive and productive, and will enhance your dogs attention and manners? This class will show you how!
3. COMPETITION OBEDIENCE: ATTENTION, FOCUS & HEELING - Whether you are in Beginner Novice or Utility, heeling, footwork, attention and focus is essential in competitive obedience. This class will introduce drills that will help you hone those skills and raise your scores.
4. COMPETITION OBEDIENCE: BEYOND NOVICE - Why wait to introduce your dog to the higher level competition obedience skills? Start working on your retrieves, go outs, jumping and signals immediately!
5. MIGHTY MITES SMALL DOG MANNERS & SOCIALIZATION - Training a small dog can indeed be challenging, and don't let anyone tell you any differently. Learn how to approach training and communicate with your little dog that will help him be more successful in class. Social time with the wee ones is also included.

Sunday, Mar. 23, 2014
12:00PM - 2:00PM
There are multiple unexpected things that can happen and go wrong when you enter an obedience, agility or competition ring. This workshop sets up many of these scenarios so you can practice, acclimate and counter condition your dog (and you) to be able to manage these occurrences relatively stress free. Join us for this 2 hour interactive workshop where you will get to play audience, annoying visitor, judge, steward and participant. Bring your dog's crate and everything you would have with you at a trial, and let's get busy recreating that environment.
VIP Members - $20

PRIVATE BEHAVIOR COUNSELING & LIFE COACHING
Not every dog is appropriate for the group class environment. Some dogs have special needs that are better addressed in one on one consulations in which you will have the counselor's undivided attention and sole focus on you and your dog. These consultations can be in person in your home, at our facility and even over the phone and online. We have all different options available to fit all different budgets. For more information, email Laurie C. Williams CPDT-KA, training & behavior director at firstname.lastname@example.org
PUP 'N IRON DAY SCHOOL TRAINING ACADEMY
Gone all day? Dog home alone? What if you could drop your dog off in the morning, and your dog would receive a full day of training, exercise, and interactive play and socializationwith people and other dogs? Well, look no further, you can do that in our Day School Training Academy, held Monday through Thursdays every week at Pup 'N Iron. This is so much more than just doggie daycare. In this program your dog will get to experience our positive, dog friendly training methods in a much more interactive and controlled environment where he will work on basic manners, impulse control, and even dog sports with our experienced dog trainers. Plus he'll get plenty of exercise, play and stimulation, leaving him fulfilled and ready to go home when you pick him up! Sound too good to be true? That's what we do at Pup 'N Iron - provide the absolute best for you and your dog!

FLEXIBLE TRAINING PROGRAM
Sure, attending class with your dog once a week is better than nothing, but what would happen if you only sent your children to school once a week? Would they receive as good of an education or learn as much as they do going 5 days a week? Of course not! Well dogs are no different. The more you can train them around the distraction of other dogs in an environment different than your home, the more they will learn and the more successful and reliable they will be. That's why at Pup 'N Iron we are the ONLY training facility in the area to offer a program which allows you to attend classes with your dog multiple days per week. Our Flexible Training Program offers classes in levels ( 1, 2, 3) , depending on your dog's skills, and your dog moves up levels as he masters new skills. Each level is offered 3 times a week, and you can attend as many of those classes per week as your schedule allows. Attend one, two or all three all for the same price! And even better, enrollment is rolling, so you can start whenever you're ready, and since class is held multiple times per week and each dog is on his own track, you never have to miss a class again!

Obedience & Rally Trials
Saturday & Sunday, March 15 & 16, 2014
C-WAGS is a fun, reward-based dog and handler team sport that encourages communication and team work. It is a bit different than "traditional" obedience in that more interaction between the dog and handler is allowed. The emphasis in C-WAGS is on providing a fun, more relaxed environment that will be less stressful to both dog and handler. We will be offering 2 Rally and 2 Obedience Classes on both days, enabling teams to earn titles in one weekend! Come have great fun with your dog, putting the skills you've practiced all year to the test!
