HG Veteran Program: Virtual Dog Training Series

When: Wednesday Aug 12/19/26 at 4pm PST / 7pm EST

What: Web Series Sessions – Just as we humans are adjusting to new times so are our dogs, in this series we are exploring ways not to just train our dogs for the changes, but also to be a continued source of comfort and fun.

Session 1: A relaxing walk and mindfulness with your dog
Daily walks don’t have to be a chore, they can be relaxing moments for both of you to take a break and enjoy the outdoors. Unlock your dog’s inner therapist for this stressful time!

Session 2: Back to Work, oh the anxiety!
Steps for adjusting to new routines and preventing separation anxiety in dogs as we begin to regularly leave the home again.

Session 3: Training for COVID & social distancing
We are all learning to interact differently and this carries over to our dogs as well! Learn some obedience skills to help and new etiquette rules for social distancing.

Materials: You, your dog, and any note-taking material (you’ll also have access to a recorded copy of the webinar).

RegistrationCLICK HERE (There is a limited amount of space in this program, we will be selecting​ participants on a first come, first served basis).

Facilitated by: We have partnered with Saralyn Tartaglia, founder of Dogs of Service co-facilitate this session with HG staff
