RUFF-resher Lessons


What is a Ruff-resher? 
Our vision is for Ruff-reshers (refreshers) to be like an “open gym” of sorts for dogs who have completed a certain level of training with us.  Our primary goal and focus will be on walking and leash manners with distractions, and we plan to meet outside at the Greenway as often as weather/daylight will allow.  When weather/daylight does not allow, we will meet at our shop on the 105 Bypass and modify our plan for inside.

Can my dog come?
All client dogs, past and present, who have either completed a training program or class (more than Puppy Preschool) or have made it past Step 2 in the Composed Canine process are welcome to attend.  If you are unsure if your dog would be a good fit for a Ruff-resher lesson, please don’t hesitate to ask!

How do I sign up? 
You don’t!  We know everyone’s schedule is a moving target these days, so we will not be requiring advance commitment – come when you can!

How do I find out about the location? 
Our default meeting location will be at the Greenway – please meet by the picnic tables at the Hunting Hills Lane entrance.  This is the entrance across from the Armory and down the road from the Watauga Swim Complex.   In the event of inclement weather, we will post the official location change ON FACEBOOK.  If you do not have a Facebook account and wish to receive an email notification, please let us know.  If we need to cancel a lesson for some reason, the cancellation will also be posted on Facebook.
