Learning Seminars

We want you to learn as much as pawsible about your canine friend so we offer these seminars so you can do just that.


Pawsitive K9 coaches are always attending learning seminars to keep you informed of all things doggy! And of course we love to bark!


These seminars are for you so please leave your 4 legged friends comfortably at home.  



If you would like one or more of the seminars below to come to your school's Community Education Program, let them know.  We will travel to any St. Croix and Pierce county school districts.

If there is a subject or behavior in particular you would like us to bark about, drop us an email.

Canine Enrichment

Enrichment in the form of games and activities that are of moderate to high intensity lowers stress in dogs and encourages them to learn more efficiently, increases their problem solving abilities and leads to a more emotionally balanced and confident dog.  DIY games and puzzles for your dog from items you find around the house.  Your dog will appreciate your creations on those "not walkable" weather days.  



Reading Your Dog

Learn the key to communication between you and your canine friend.   Your therapy training will proceed more quickly and easily when you can read the way your dog is responding to your efforts.  You will learn how to listen to your dog by reading his body language.  And what is YOUR body language telling your dog? 

Tuesdays 3/10 & 3/17

Dog-gone Responsibility

Dogs and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. Caring for a dog creates a sense of empathy and a respect for life. It teaches commitment and consistency, and it builds self-confidence. Your encouragement, along with the tail-wagging gratitude of the dog, will create a lasting feeling of self-esteem that will follow the child through life.
