Yay! Vet Visit!

Do you struggle with bringing your dog to the veterinary hospital? Is your dog fearful, anxious, and/or reactive toward other dogs and people at the veterinary hospital?

Do you have a new dog that you'd like to ensure is relaxed and happy at the vet?

Then this is the class for you and your dog!
