Dog Class TV to help owners
gain one-command control over their dogs, and to
make the best decisions for every stage of their dog's life
Dog Class TV will teach viewers how to train any canine to be “doggone great,” said Ammen, whose sixth book, Hip Ideas for Hyper Dogs, was released by Howell Books in 2007.
Blending interviews with various experts, viewer Q&As, training tips and reviews of canine products and services, the program will help owners achieve one-command control over their dogs and to make the best possible decisions for every stage of their canine best friends’ lives.
Ammen decided to launch Dog Class TV to help owners bring out the best in their dogs – and to entertain dog-lovers who are, for one reason or another, dogless.
“I admire what Cesar Milan has done to popularize dog training,” she said. “People need to know there is someone with the same problem-solving capabilities in Milwaukee.”
This is not her first time teaching via television.
“I took a three-year break, but was eager to get back to doing a series,” she said. “There are a lot of people who want to have a fun-loving, healthy, obedient, enviable, and all-around great dog. But few realize that they have diamonds in the ‘ruff’ right at the end of their leashes. Dog Class TV will show them how to make the dog of their dreams a reality.”
Most people appreciate a well-behaved, dignified dog, Ammen added. “Many understand that dangling a treat in front of a dog’s face will produce neither a satisfactory relationship or the level of control required to keep a dog both happy and safe. What’s needed instead are training techniques that respect the dog’s intelligence, work quickly, and give owners a true sense of accomplishment. And that’s what Dog Class TV provides.”
Ammen has been director of Amiable Dog Training since 1982. In addition to training and writing on canine topics, she performs with popular children’s entertainer Able the Dancing Chihuahua.
MATA channel 14 and U-Verse serve the city of Milwaukee and north-shore communities.
Marianne Anderson of Companions Rest Pet Cemeteries talks with Ammen about how to decide when euthanasia is the humane course of action and ways to memorialize a beloved pet, while Ammen discusses introducing a new pet to the household and selecting the right dog for your circumstances.
