Happy New Year! Welcome to 2023!
In 2023, I will be expanding with more info following the Theme of the Months in 2022. That makes it the month to make sure we are "Planning For Success" in all aspects of life with our dogs. And that means creating a plan!
Make sure your plan is a S.M.A.R.T. Plan!
Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, & Timely
Make sure your plan has realistic expectations!
Realistic for your dog's age. Realistic for the environment your working in. Realistic for the timeline you anticipate.
Make sure your plan has accountability!
Keeping a training log can give you accountability with yourself. Working with a Canine Coach can give you accountability with another person.
Yooper Paws 2023 Plans
We have big plans for this year with more local classes, new online classes, better training plan templates, and more workgroups.
Local Classes will begin at the MAXX Entertainment Facility in January! We have our first FAD (Focus Around Distractions) Class for excitable adolescents beginning on January 11th. Positively Puppy Paws Group Classes will be scheduled to begin soon after that. We will also continue offering classes and small groups in outdoor locations, especially the Confident Canines Class for Shy & Sensitive Dogs, FAD - Community & FAD - Public Environments.
2023 Yooper Paws Plans by Yooper Paws of Love
Crazy2Calm Canine Coaches will be offering some new online classes too. Many of which will be Service Dog specific classes such as our Public Access Class and the Wheelchair Series. But we will also be looking at small mini-classes or workshops to address many common challenging behaviors. And time permitting I want to create a Young Adults or the College Canine Class. We will also be continuing our current online classes both the work-at-your-own pace classes and the Workgroup classes.
