Games People Play

This outing is for people only, NO PUPPIES! That's right, a puppy outing without puppies! Blasphemous though it may be , pups can make it difficult for you to learn. This outing is about you! This will still count towards your monthly obligation to see a counselor! This outing will be a fun, game filled afternoon to make you a better trainer and raiser. Also, please bring your treat pouch (no treats needed). I am co-hosting this outing with counselor Kayla Dever, we are limiting this to 20 people. This activity is three hours long, so plan accordingly.
