Hi, my name is Brooklynn!
I bark at my humans and jump on them to let them know I want attention and affection. I also enjoy showing off my strength by dragging my parents on leash.
I’ve been coming to daycare regularly for over a year and made so many friends, furry and human.
My crazy antics worked until my parents signed me up for Play and Train. Now, along with basic manners, the Club Pet Academy is teaching me how to walk with a loose leash so I don’t hurt my Mom and Dad. The trainers say I’m doing awesome so far!

Dog Training Session 1
Today was Brooklynn’s first training session! She did really well, I think she’s going to love being in training!
We focused on teaching Brooklynn eye contact or the command, look.
This only needs to be practiced 2-3 minutes everyday
Brooklynn did really well with this exercise and is going to learn look in no time!
When she tries to jump for the treat, do not give it to her. Ask her to sit, and bring the treat up to your face (middle of eyes or forehead) and asking for her eye contact, once she gives you eye contact, then you can verbally reinforce (tell her, “Yes! Good girl!”) and give her the treat
Brooklynn should be calm for this exercise, so try practicing after she’s played in daycare or after her normal daily exercise.
We also worked on leash manners. She really enjoyed this too!
We walked together in a low distraction area of the building using treats to help Brooklynn understand where I wanted her to be (on my right side, slightly behind me with her muzzle at my thigh)
Once she was in the correct position, I would bring a treat up to my face, asking for eye contact. Once she gave me eye contact, I would verbally reinforce the action by saying, “Yes! Good girl!” and give a treat
