Pet adoption has surged across the U.S. since the onset of the pandemic, yet many new pet parents will struggle to bond with and train their furry family member before heading back to the office. In addition, almost all of the nearly 65% of American households that already owned a dog wish their pup was at least a little more trained.
Rover and Varsity Tutors are teaming up to help. On July 14th and July 16th, Nicole Ellis
, a certified professional dog trainer and pet lifestyle expert, will be hosting a free
, interactive class aimed at bringing pet parents and their dogs closer together.
July 14 & July 16
Tuesday & Thursday @ 8:00 – 9:00 PM EDT
2 x 60 min sessions (2 hours)
All ages welcome
The “Essentials of Dog Training
” will teach families – and their pups – the fundamentals of reward-based training, providing step-by-step instruction, fun engagement games and exercises that will strengthen the human-animal bond. Maggie, Nicole’s shelter dog turned puppy-star, who performs in films and commercials, visits hospitals and knows over 100 commands from skateboarding to handstands, will co-teach the class.
