NEW SERIES for DOGS AND THEIR PEOPLE at THE McBURNEY YMCA BY TRAINER/BEHAVORIST SHARON MEAR Five Week Courses Run Weekly from January 12th – February 9th










NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2006

Trainer and Behaviorist Sharon Mear, whose Manhattan-based practice is Training Cats and Dogs, is teaching two new series of focused Group Classes in Obedience Training for Dogs and Their People at the McBurney YMCA (125 West 14th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues). The classes will be held on five consecutive Thursday evenings starting January 12th.

The classes at the Y are divided into two categories: (1) a series for small dogs* from 6:30-7:30PM and (2) a series for medium and larger dogs from 7:45-8:45PM. Both courses consist of five classes and either one costs $ 275.00. Classes are strictly limited in size and are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. (*Note: for this series small dogs are those whose weight is 25 lbs. or less.)

Designed for dogs with little or no prior training, the group classes at the Y are also good for those who may need a “refresher” in good behavior training. Ms. Mear will address issues including pulling on the leash, barking at dogs and people, jumping up inappropriately when excited and other problem behaviors. Classes are kept small in size so that all participants receive the attention they need. Unlike a practice common among other popular trainers, Ms. Mear instructs the classes herself.

To sign up for the Group Classes in Obedience Training for Dogs and their People at the McBurney YMCA, contact Training Cats and Dogs at 212-727-2871 or info[AT]trainingcatsandogs.com.

About Sharon Mear and Training Cats and Dogs

Recommended by a long list of veterinarians throughout Manhattan, Sharon Mear bases her training, both for groups and in private session, upon a variety of positive reinforcement techniques as well as her own experiences developed from working with animals and the people with whom they live. “My aim is to help people become effective at interactions with their dogs. Many times even with the best intentions, clients don’t see how they are unconsciously adding to their dog’s anxiety or confusion. I actually coach people – and then they become the expert trainers!” Though based in Chelsea, Ms. Mear has clients throughout Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
