Welcome to Newport Living and Lifestyles

I’m Christon and we are here at the Hotel Viking on the patio at One Bellevue,

for a special event

“Canines and Cocktails”

that Laurie Ruttenberg has put together

I would love for you to introduce your ideas and yourselves

Tell us all about this really special dog friendly event.

Sure! Thank you Christon.

I’m here with Kim Cipolla of Eye to Eye Dog Training.

Kim and I actually came up with this idea and the lovely Hotel Viking is hosting for us today.

What we are going to be doing today is a cafe manners class called

“Cocktails and Commands” and Kim is gonna be taking us through ways to make our

dogs behave a little bit better when we want to take them out and just enjoy you

know a patio dining experience.

Sounds good to me!

because they are so food frenzied, right?

so are you gonna help with how to make the dog unfrenzied somehow?

A little bit, I mean everyone’s dogs are such big parts of our lives now.

Everyone wants to take their dogs everywhere.

We want to keep them safe. We want everyone to have a great time.

That’s really the idea with this class,

is so that you can take your dog somewhere and

know it’s going to be a relaxed experience and not stressful for anyone.

How to keep them calm around distractions and exciting things,

like food, and other dogs and people.

Some dogs just think that they should meet everyone.

We also want them to have manners, so that is the idea.

That’s true, just like children!

Maybe one day in the near future we’ll be able to take a dog to the grocery store?

I see dogs in the grocery store all the time!

What? I got a know these grocery stores !

We look forward to the training. How many people are you guys expecting to see at this training?

I think we have about 40 today, so we are looking at about 40 dogs and their “Pawrents”.

Here to learn some manners.

thank you so much ladies I look forward to seeing more about your training.

Thank you!

Thanks for coming, my name is Laurie Ruttenberg and I own Lucky Dog Resort.

A luxury dog resort and daycare social club in Middletown Rhode Island.

First I would like to thank the Hotel Viking for hosting this. It is such a beautiful place.

Kim, I’ve known for years now. Kim has been working with their dogs and their humans for 10 years,

and has extensive experience with all kinds of dogs,

all kinds of sizes, temperaments, etcetera.

Her focus and I’ve seen her do this

is on developing the relationship between the dog and their handler

through the use of clear and consistent cues and body language.

She emphasizes rewarding good behavior and

here’s the key everybody,

ignoring bad behavior,

by redirecting those undesirable behaviors

Kim shows us all how to communicate with our dogs effectively through this type

of communication so it can help achieve our goals.

When things start to get crazy or you see a parade of dogs coming the street

start with your attention queue.

Until your dog is focused on you

it’s gonna be hard for them to hear or pay attention to any thing else that you signal to them.

The way we hold our leash makes a huge difference to how we’re communicating with our dog

If we have it wrapped really tight and we’re holding it up high,

we are sending a lot of tension down the leash and as soon as we do that

our dogs go into alert mode. What’s gonna happen? They’re on alert.

Instead we can signal to them, nope we’re just going for a stroll, by keeping

our arm nice and straight and holding it close to them

to signal to them they can stay close without being stressed out.

Especially here in a patio, right ?

We need to maneuver some tight spaces so

they can be next to us, but be very calm.

Has everybody gotten a little blue ticket

and filled it out and had us take the other one? yes? okay great !

Let me tell you about the prizes that you could win today.

The first is a private training session with you and your pup with

Kim Cipolla of Eye to Eye Dog Training at Lucky Dog Resort, That is a $100 dollar value!

The second one is taking all those skills that you learned here today and

coming to have dinner with your pup on Hotel Viking at One Bellevue also $100 value and

Then lastly the top dog prize here for tonight so if you get it consider yourself lucky,

Consider yourself lucky if you get any of these prizes!

A pet photography gift certificate with Koren worth $575.
