Hollywood Feed University Presents Online Course on Bringing a New Pet Home: Basic Training
Hollywood Feed recently hosted a free virtual class, entitled “Bringing a New Pet Home: Basic Training” taught by Owner & Founder of Allegiance Canine, Jacque Bonéy. This course was part of Hollywood Feed’s free pet wellness education resource known as Hollywood Feed University.
In this presentation, Bonéy shared do's and don’ts and a few insights into how your dog thinks. He taught that as exciting as bringing a new dog home can be, there are ground rules that need to be set to set your dog up for success. Items discussed were communication with your dog and marker words, schedules, kennel training, exercise, the importance of vaccinations and socialization. Establishing the habits talked about in the presentation with your furry friend early on prevents unwanted behavior and leads to a healthy relationship with your dog.
During the course, he held a live, interactive Q&A session with attendees and addressed the questions asked by viewers.
A recording of each class may be viewed on the Hollywood Feed University website at: https://hfu.hollywoodfeed.com/live-presentations/bringing-a-new-pet-home-basic-training/
