PUPS 'n PATIOS
CAFE' & BREWERY Patio Etiquette
HAVE YOU EVER WISHED you could bring your pup to patio surf on a lazy afternoon but can't because they just need a few more skills?
Well, then, our PUPS 'N PATIOS class may be just what you need to enjoy those excursions with your pup.
PUPS 'N PATIOS is a unique spon-off SPECIALTY class from our URBAN HOUND Life Skills Program and is offered by our dogWISE Training Team specifically for social patio & brewery settings.
We've taken some of the skills from Urban Hound and fine-tuned them for the patio setting. We'll help you teach your pup the manners and etiquette they'll need to be welcomed with open arms on brewery patios and other social settings.
THE WHY OF PUPS 'N PATIOS
One of the best things we can do to keep patios dog-friendly is to teach our dogs GREAT skills!
No matter where we're visiting, when we show up with well-behaved dogs, we're making an impression. Let's make a good one by setting an example for other visitors with dogs. Help show the establishments, who have been kind enough to open their doors to our canine companions, that dogs can indeed be hassle-free and a welcome patron.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A PATIO PUP?
We focus on teaching your pup polite behaviour and you the etiquette needed, so you can enjoy your pup’s company in public places.
