Beginning Tuesday, May 10:  Family Dog I—with Kelsey Cowger

Tuesdays May 10—June 14, 6:15—7:15pm, in Room 14. $120. Do you have a new dog in your life? Does your current dog need a little brush-up on his manners? This class might be perfect for you! In this class, we'll cover the basics--sit, down, stay, etc.--but we'll also work on other important life skills like relaxation and focus. We'll emphasize teaching you how to teach your dog new things so you'll be prepared for life outside of class!  *Note: This class will be taught using a clicker. You can either bring your own, or we'll sell you one for $3 the first night of class. Visit for more info.  To enroll, please email This class will have a cap of six students.

Kelsey Cowger is a recovering university professor turned full-time dog person. She is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA-CTP). Her experience as a teacher makes her a great coach for people as well as dogs, and she really enjoys training both ends of the leash! Kelsey has significant experience in sheltering and rescue (both as a professional and as a volunteer): prior to joining Team Unruly, she worked with dogs at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT (the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary). She loves working with 'issue dogs' and dogs who had a less-than-perfect start in life.
