Do you want to learn more about what dogs are saying to each other and to you? Would you like to better understand how your body language affects your communication with the dogs in your life? Through pictures and video clips, learn to recognize (and use) subtle canine communication signals to better understand and relate to dogs.
Free and open to the public. Potter Pet U is for humans only; please leave animals at home. Pre-registration required, contact Anastacia Southland, 401.846.0592 ext 120 or
You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks at the
Potter League's Tricks Class
Tricks ClassThis class runs for four weeks and each class will cover three to four new fun-tabulous tricks. Impress your friends and family with your dog's new found abilities and build his confidence along the way.
If you're looking for a class to help your dog with the finer points of Loose Leash Walking and Coming When Called (Recall), our Canine Essentials class covers both of these important skills. If taking your dog for a walk is a real "drag" and calling his name means he runs away from you, this 3 week class could be what you're looking for. This class will help you and your dog finally experience pleasant walks together as well as develop a reliable recall, which could save his life someday!
Classes are held indoors in our modern training center. For more information about these classes, visit the training pages for Tricks Class and Canine Essentials or call 401.846.0592 ext.122 for more information.
