Mamas, we think this is a GENIUS idea from our friend and professional pet trainer, Denise Holmes. Not only would this service teach your pet a new trick, you can put your kid in charge of the teaching. He or she will learn how to teach the trick via a Facetime 30-minute session. (Payment is easy via Venmo.) Here’s the “Pick a Trick” service description, as described by Denise:
“Finding things for the kids to do during this time of 😷 social distancing can be hard. Reinforcing concepts like consideration for others and teamwork without friends or siblings can be even harder.
To help alleviate everyone’s boredom- including mine- and encourage positive interaction, I’ll be waiving the new client consultation requirement and offering single sessions for kids who’d like to teach their dog a new trick.
Pick a trick, give me a call, and let’s book your kid’s personalized video session!”
