Learning Volhaard Training

In our quest to learn a wide variety of training methods, staff spent last week at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, Virginia, in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There, we studied the Volhard method of dog training with the amazing instructors from Mahogany Ridge: Your Dog's Training Center. We learned a lot, and we had an amazing time!
