Clubs

With a reactive dog hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just love this dog, socialize him and try to do the right thing, his reactivity will just go away. You wait and watch and work: sometimes you need help, you don’t give up, because the treasure lies just around the next digress.

C.A.F.F.E. (Canines and Fun, Facts, Education)

On Whidbey Island there are few places to just hang out with other people and their dogs that don’t involve the chaos of dog parks or fundraising sponsorship events. Where can you go with your dog that exercises them mentally, physically and socially with other dogs without overstimulation?

The idea of Club C.A.F.F.E. is simple, engage your dog in an activity with other dogs and their owners while still on leash and under control. Combine canines with fun, facts and education. This stable environment encourages mental exercise leading to better manners for your pooch. You’ll get to explore different activities, venues and sights with your dogs. When dogs are loose in the dog park, there is constant chaos, from one dog picking fights, to owners content to talk to others while their dog runs wild, maniacally knocking others dogs down. A famous dog behavioralist once said, "You don’t teach your child table manners at Chuck E Cheese’s". This is true for dogs as well. Most owners don’t have an ideal place with other calm dogs to practice what they learn in obedience class. Obedience classes aren’t the "end of training" your dog, it is an ongoing commitment. Club C.A.F.F.E provides a wonderful and safe dog experience, while continuing your dog’s knowledge, socialization and familiarization. We keep it positive, we exercise voice control and we welcome dog and human friendly canines. Join us, you just might like it!

This club will be a learning experience, as well as a social outlet for owners and their dogs. It will combine fun with facts and education and show owners all that is available in enjoying their canine friends. There will be product demos and showcases, speakers, field trips and much, much more. A social hour, trail walking trips, and other outings will provide a well-rounded understanding of all things dog. This group will develop doggie friends and probably form strong bonds with new people, new dogs and who share a common tie - our dogs. Anyone interested in joining this group should email Diane.
