… and NO CLASS this weekend!
Muggy and Lola’s sweet mugs are a steady fixture on the sidelines of Pit Ed classes, always wearing those classic “Woe is me” faces and luring visitors over to get them some lovin’ while their person stays busy teaching two back to back training classes. Smart dogs!
Their person Donyale is a popular instructor with the steady stream of new dog handlers that file in each week. She’s got a knack for helping people learn their beginning skills with her down to earth style, her endless enthusiasm and happy sense of humor. Donyale understands how new handlers feel – She started out as a shelter volunteer herself, taking Berkeley shelter dogs through class and helping them get adopted. She showed so much natural ability that we snagged her for a new role as class instructor for the Beginner and Novice Drop In classes and we’ve been humming along ever since.
Class members may not always realize that Donyale comes to a good number of classes right off of a 48 shift at her ‘real’ job. She’s a SF fire fighter and does a lot of shift trading so she can be there for the dogs on Saturday mornings, with or without a full night’s sleep. A true pit bull junkie – she painted Muggy and Lola on her station helmet to keep their bully spirits near when she’s on the job.
ANNOUNCEMENT TO PIT ED CLASS MEMBERS:
We’re taking a tiny break, so there will be NO classes – No Pit Ed and No CGC Class this weekend, October 2.
Starting Next Weekend, we’re switching our classes to Saturdays. Beginning and Drop in classes will run on Saturday from 11:30-12:30 am and Linda’s CGC Prep Class will also switch to Saturdays, starting October 9th.
Are you on BR’s Pit Ed class wait list? It’s currently taking 6 months for people to get in once they register for classes. We’re so sorry about the long wait! We’re looking at ways to move things along so we can help you with your dog. Don’t give up! Registration
