Our CCPDT-certified dog trainer, Kate Palese, has 20+ years of experience training dogs. Her mother had Parkinson’s, and she is thrilled to have the chance to teach you how to train your dog to “lend a helping paw”.

Impossible, you say?  In the six-week class, Kate will help you train your pup to:

  • Pick up dropped items
  • Fetch
  • Recognize when you are in a “freeze” and help you “unfreeze”
  • Walk civilly on leash
  • Heel, whether you use a cane, a chair, a scooter or walk unassisted
WHERE: Monte Vista Village, 2211 Massachusetts Ave, Lemon Grove, CA 91945
WHEN: Friday afternoons, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm, September 30 – November 4, 2016
COST: $80 for a six-week course

 

Your dog’s mastery of these skills is not guaranteed – but the laughs are.

Join the fun and meet other dog-lovers in the Parkinson’s community.
