My name’s Ava.
I’m a very anxious girl. Club Pet Academy is helping me learn how to calm down when I board at Club Pet Resorts.
I have a tendency to get overwhelmed. I bark and bounce off the walls in frustration.
I may look tough but I’m actually a big softy! I love cuddling and playing with people!

Dog Training Log
Dog Training Session 1
Ava did really well with training in her suite. It prevented her from barking and having, essentially panic attacks.
We focused on learning eye contact while in her suite.
She really got the hang of it and was able to make eye contact while I held treats at my side.
Additionally, she performed her shake and sit command, to keep her mind off being in the room.
I also took breaks to just give her love in her suite to try to make it a more positive experience.
Dog Training Session 2
Ava did great and was excited for training today!
We continued working with her anxiety in the suite and staying calm in her travel kennel.
Ava still hasn’t associated the action look with the word yet but with practice she’s going to get it in no time!
Ava loves giving you her paw and getting pets when she’s calm. I think this may be her favorite part!
Ava was calm in her kennel with me in the suite for 7 minutes straight!
Ava was calm for about 1 minute when I was outside of the suite
Before letting Ava out of the kennel, she must be calm and give me eye contact. Once she does so, I okay her to come out rewarding with treats and verbal reinforcement!
