City Dog Training Grand Opening - Saturday, October 18

via e-mail


City Dog Training, LLC is celebrating its opening and collaboration with the most experienced area trainers with an open house on Saturday, October 18th from 2-4 pm.

Located in the basement of the Anthony's building at 156 Highland Ave, (enter from rear parking lot, off Central Street), City Dog Training offers specialized floor matting for safe jumping and running, a members-only retail area for treats and training needs, and a separate behavior consultation office for dogs and owners in need of extra help.

City Dog Training is owned and operated by Marjie Alonso, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant and Certified Pet Dog Trainer. Marjie has been training and working in behavior for many years, and is now realizing one of her dreams - to open a community dog training and education facility welcoming neighborhood dogs and their humans to classes, seminars, play groups and behavior consultations.

In addition to classes, City Dog Training will be providing indoor limited-admission play groups year-round for heated or air-conditioned play regardless of the weather! Books of 3-time and 6-time admission tickets will be available for purchase at the open house and at the space during business hours.

The open house will offer games, Rally card lessons, a mini-tricks workshop and snacks for humans and dogs. We won't be having play time at the open house, but visitors to the open house may enter a drawing to win one of 10 free play date admission cards.

City Dog Training is delighted to welcome BARK, Boston Agility Racing K-9s, Boston's only in-town agility club, to the space. Bark will be hosting some agility demo days and lessons at City Dog throughout the winter, and a "come and try agility" afternoon at Nunziato Field in the spring. BARK will hold weekly club training on Sunday nights.

City Dog Training is also honored to have as resident visiting trainers:

Donna Culbert of Donna's Do Right Dogs, head Puppy-K instructor for the New England Dog Training Club. Donna will be holding puppy and manners classes throughout the year.

Vera Wilkinson, CDBC, CPDT, of The Cooperative Dog, who will be holding Saturday morning agility classes starting on October.

Liz Shaw of Magical Mutt, who will be holding manners classes on Tuesday evenings starting in October.

Marjie and Vera will be teaching a Rowdy Rover reactive dog class on Saturday afternoons, starting in November.

In addition to all this, City Dog Training will be hosting seminars in Canine Body Language, Dogs & Storks for parents and babies, herbal remedies and education, and classes in clicker tricks, Rally O, stays and recalls and loose leash walking. Individual private ring rental is also available.

We are delighted to be a part of the dog community, and look forward to meeting you all!
