Dog Face OUTDOOR CLASSES for Spring!

Here’s what you’ve been waiting for:
Our OUTDOOR CLASSES for spring are on the schedule! 

Yes, training your dog inside is great, but what happens when you go outside? Does your training go out the window too? We will work on the type of distractions you’ll find when taking your dog out and about, like passing other dog/owner teams, having kids and bikes go past you, and even going into a store!  Because of the social nature of this class, all dogs must be dog and human friendly!

Class runs for 3-weeks, $100.00 Each week is at a new location:
Fri, June 3rd at 9:00am held in Verona
Fri, June 10th at 9:00am held in Monticello
Fri, June 17th at 9:00am held in New Glarus


Mon, June 6th at 6:00pm held in Verona
Mon, June 13th at 6:00pm held in Monticello
Mon, June 20th at 6:00pm held in New Glarus

This is for dogs that have completed Levels One and Two (some dogs take Levels One and Two multiple times – Different classes mean different dogs and different energy…). In the Level Three Class we take what we have learned and apply it to real life – OUTSIDE life… Yes, we take field trips in our Level Three Class. This is for owners that want the best-of-the-best. I *highly* recommend this class for ALL owners that want to take their dog with them outside, walks, camping, hiking, festivals…. I think every owner-dog team will benefit from these classes!

Dogs have a very keen sense of smell-100,000 times stronger than humans! That’s why dogs are often used to find lost people and animals, drugs, avalanche and disaster victims, and even to detect cancer and oncoming seizures. Tracking is a canine sport that demonstrates a dog’s natural ability to recognize and follow a scent, and is the foundation of canine search and rescue work. In tracking the dog is completely in charge, because only he knows how to use his nose to find and follow the track.

I can’t get enough of Tracking with my dogs because it’s something that they love, and I enjoy spending time with them outside!

About Dog Face

Giene Keyes, CPDT – KA Owner & Founder of Dog Face, LLC & Shooting Star Portuguese Water Dogs Giene started working with dog behavior in 1990 when she adopted a 4-year old Greyhound from the racing track. To date he is the most severe separation anxiety case that she has seen. He taught Giene about the psyche and learning process of dogs. It wasn’t until Giene was training her little pot-bellied Labrador puppy in 1995 that she really became interested in the actual training process of canines. Starting her small training business in 1997 she developed her own methods and ideas of positive reinforcement. She took what she had learned from her Greyhound, as well as positive methods she used to train horses, to create what is now the base of our training methods in the classes we teach today. Giene is a professional dog trainer and behavior specialist in Southern Wisconsin. After winning Best of Madison for two years in a row, Giene sold her Madison Dog Daycare to devote her time to dog behavior and helping owners create harmony with their pets in their homes. Specializing in aggression and difficult dog cases, Giene also works with rescue groups and shelters, evaluating dogs for adoption, developing Canine Aggression Management programs, and educating staff on dog language and behaviors. She has provided behavior consultations for service dog organizations, rescue groups and dog daycares throughout the Midwest. She is often contacted by police departments to work with individuals that have dangerous dogs. As a mother of 3 young children, Giene also realizes the importance of family dog training. She incorporates realistic training methods and helps to incorporate dogs into the family. She is an Instructor with the American Red Cross in Pet CPR and First Aid, a Certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator with the American Kennel Club, and a Licensed Judge with the WI Dept of Ag, Trade & Consumer Protection. Giene routinely presents seminars on Dog Behavior, Training, and Operant Conditioning as well as educating her staff on dog body language and pack mentality. Giene is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer. Giene has been a regular guest on popular Madison radio shows and interviewed on numerous evening newscasts. Giene has also been featured in a number of local magazines, including the cover for Wisconsin Woman in 2010. Giene has also been highlighted in the Wisconsin State Journal for her work with Chicken Clicker Training, improving dog training skills along with timing and observation, and recently interviewed for a Nationwide Podcast. She enjoys holding training workshops across the state.
