Rainy Day Brain Games

Mental enrichment is an important part of every dog’s life. This one-hour workshop is designed to get your dog to use their brain to figure out puzzles, toys, introductory nose work and other mental activities. There will be 8 brain stations that each dog will have a turn at. This is perfect for dogs of all ages, especially dogs who have a ton of energy! A tired brain means a tired dog!

This workshop is not designed for dogs reactive to people or other dogs.

This workshop costs $30.

Caring for and living with dogs who are reactive to people and/or other dogs can be isolating, frustrating, and overwhelming! At New Dawn, we understand this and would like to give you an opportunity to realize you are not alone! For a $5 donation, you can join us and meet others who are dealing with the same issues you are. We will also demonstrate how to properly begin counter-conditioning your dog to their triggers.
