Ever wonder how trainers teach a dog to play the piano? That is shaping! As dog owners, we are accustomed to leading them into the behavior we want, but too rarely do we draw on a dog’s natural ability to learn and problem solve. In our shaping workshop, you will begin to learn how shaping works and play some fun games with your dog.
Dogs must be able to work in the presence of other dogs and humans.
Paws on the Potomac
an Urban Warrior AdventureJoin us on an interactive stroll along the Potomac! A wonderful class to work on managing crowds, leash manners, walking etiquette and strengthening those obedience skills. This will be an activity filled walk (less than a mile) along the water in gorgeous, Springtime, DC. This adventure is for dogs that have gone through basic obedience.
Splashtime!a Nature Lover's Adventure
Whether your dog is water savvy, shy about dipping a paw in, or has never been exposed to a swim, this class is meant to handle all levels of swimming ability. We'll see what it means to motivate and train your dog to look like a dock-diving pro. This Adventure Dog class is great prep for all the summer swimming up ahead!
Learn to walk your dog with a loose leash in this fun and interactive workshop. All students will learn the difference between loose leash walking, heel and sniff time using skill games! This is a hands-on workshop so bring yourself, your dog and be ready to learn.
Color outside the lines in this fun art class for canines! Each student will get pet-friendly paint and encourage their dog to create their own, original painting.

Canine Meditation and Healing
KissAble Canine is excited to offer this workshop in partnership with Mimi Malfitano, meditation teacher, Reiki master and owner of Subtle Transformations.
This workshop will give you meditation and energy healing techniques that you can practice with your dog. We will focus on calming our own energies so we can offer better guidance and leadership to our canine companions. With the expert guidance of Mimi, this workshop is sure to be an enlightening experience.
The workshop is great for new dog owners, shy or timid dogs and for the owner looking to enhance the bond they have with their dog. Dogs must not be aggressive to other dogs or to people. This workshop will be a small group, please register early.
