Beer and dogs each have a knack for lifting our spirits. So what could be better than the double-knack approach of enjoying a few beers in the company of friends and our pups?
Instead of merely training your dog to sit, lay down, & stay Colorado-based Summit Dog Training takes a 3-pronged approach to create an atmosphere that is helpful for brewery staff, safe & comfortable for your pooch, and informative for other dog trainers.
Firstly, they offer training not merely for dogs, but for waitstaff at dog-friendly breweries. In this phase they teach staff members the principles of dog behavior, dog safety, and how to avoid making dogs feel overwhelmed in a potentially hyper-stimulating environment.
Next comes the owner-dog training where dogs learn habits for behaving in public, and people learn to take control of their pups there.
Finally, they offer training for other dog trainers who are interested in spreading the Drink with Your Dog™ movement. Hopefully some in Illinois take up the call!
