Tips for a Fun Pawty!

  • Size Matters: Canine guest need a sufficient amount of space and supervision. Lucky Dog has a perfect, safe space for your guests. Do it yourself, or we can help you plan it.

  • Pick of the Litter: Consider the guest list. The key element to a successful human event is to invite a stimulating group of guests but at a canine event, the mix is in the interest of safety. Your party should be limited to dogs with compatible personalities and good manners. Dogs that are already familiar with each other from the dog run, neighborhood or doggy day care center will be most likely to play politely.

  • Bone fido Invitation: Every good hosts knows that the invitation sets the tone for the party. Consider breed stationery to match that of your guest of honor. For a truly special invitation, have a pet photographer take a special picture of you and your beautiful pet. Remember to include the date, time, location, RSVP information and the words All canine guests must be accompanied by their owners. Remember, invitations should be sent out at least three weeks before the day of the party. Ask us for help in finding great invitations.

  • Dog Play: If you are the kind of host who loves to create an unforgettable event, have lots of fun doggie games planned. We can make suggestions. You may want to consider hiring an obedience instructor who can teach party guests, old and new, some tricks. Easy and safe agility exercises are an especially fun idea. Watching Harry, the Great Dane, barrel through tunnels is just as much fun as watching Sophie, a Toy Poodle, discover her athletic ability on a low hurdle. Be sure that the agility obstacles you use are safe for all participants. This is not the time to be running over a tall A-frame where someone can get hurt or scared.

  • Chow Hounds: Dogs will enjoy a special doggie birthday cake (and be sure to have lots of goodies for the human guests to enjoy). We can organize that for you. Or if you prefer baking yourself, liver cupcakes topped with cream cheese and peanut butter icing are a bit hit with the kibble crowd. Do not forget the beverage of choice at these dogged affairs is cool, fresh water.

  • Pooper Scoop: Have plenty of plastic bags hand for cleaning up do's and don'ts. And if the party is indoors, make sure there are rolls of paper towels and spray cleaner as well.

  • Treats to Go: Once the party is over, send your guest home with doggy bags. Fill them with yummy, healthful treats and perhaps a toy. After all those snacks, you always want to look after your canine friends.

The B.A. walking nicely on leash level test has some similarities to the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test (but C.L.A.S.S. is governed by the APDT, Association of Professional Dog Trainers, not the AKC.) You will also have taken the first step toward the real-life skills required to pass tests for therapy dog work or just know that you have trained a solid canine citizen.

At the B.A. level, the use of treats as rewards after the completion of an exercise is allowed and encouraged.

Don't know if you are ready to take the test? Watch a video that demonstrates the B.A. level skills tested in the evaluation: Click Here to Watch.

    I LOVE this video! So easy to understand, great visuals, and it really helps you learn the best way to work with your dog for a happy relationship.--Caitlin C.

    This is a terrific video. Teaches you how your dog thinks so you can understand how to get him to understand what you are asking for him to do. Great for foundation training. I have a 16 week old black lab, Newton. He is responding to this training remarkably well. Positive reinforcement training can be challenging to understand, especially when your dog does something you don't want him to do. The answers are all here for the basics that are so important for your relationship with your dog going forward. Thank you Mindy for this terrific & informative webinar. --Arnie M.
