BELTON, TX — As we all are home more than usual, this is a great time to teach your dog some new tricks or simply give them some basic training.
Sit Means Sit Dog Training in Belton has temporarily moved classes online. Due to social distancing guidelines, they wanted to make sure their clients and their pups get the training they need.
"Your dog doesn't take a day off either they get bored very quickly," Owner, Robin Webster said.
Now that your home more often, your dog is loving the new attention and you might as well put the extra attention to good use.
"I love to see folks in a very short period of time be able to find success," Webster said.
Sit Means Sit also provides that one on one training with your dog. Practicing proper social distancing methods they disinfect any equipment before handing the dropping the dog off.
Maria Inzinca is taking advantage of the training with her dog Delta.
"She jumps a lot, so I don't really want her to jump it’s cute sometimes but not to strangers," Inzinca said.
Although an adorable dog, Delta still needs some discipline.
Webster has been training dogs for 12 years, she was sad knowing in-person classes would not happen again for a while.
"Some clients that would come to three or four classes a week and so we're used to seeing them and we just knew that we didn't want to have a space of time where they weren't able to get the support that they needed for the classes," Webster said.
Webster has also noticed some new recruits, as more people find that they need a trusty companion during these times.
"Even when I'm stressed out and things are day to day changing right now I still can look at my dog and feel happy," Webster said.
In times like now, having a fun-loving, slobbery friend is the perfect antidote. Webster can't help but be amazed by the community she lives in to keep her business and other locals going.
"We still want to operate as a small-town community who still want to support each other," Webster said. "And I'm so grateful to be able to live in this community and work right now."
