Four on the Floor

Four on the Floor - Bring Your Dog!

Is your dog gravity-challenged? Come learn how to teach "four on the floor!"

Dogs jump on people to get attention and as a form of greeting. Although they may mean well, dogs can knock over small children, tear clothing, and rip skin in their enthusiasm. Many commonly-used techniques being used to discourage a dog from jumping up often make the problem worse, hurt the dog, or put a person in danger.

In about half an hour, you and your dog can complete a series of five activities that will help curb jumping-up, and teach polite greeting behavior.

Dogs must be dog and people friendly, current on vaccinations, and leashed with a 4′-6′ non-retractable leash.

There are four 30-minute sessions starting at 10:00 am, 10:30 am, 11:00 pm, and 11:30 pm. Join us for one or all four!
