Advice from the "Smaht Dog"---I might not even need the advice home page...from the library home page, when they click advice box, it could just come to this page.
DON'T MENTION THE SEPARATE SD PROGRAM YET, JUST REFER TO THE TRAININGS HERE AS SMAHT DOG. SIMPLE, NOT TO MANY AND NOT OVERLY COMPLICATED
- can enjoy the dog hikes we provide.
Real Life "on the trail" Scenarios, Advice...Dog Training 2.0

*there are more courses inside the training overall course, i can just pick four for the rectangles, or have the fourth be "etc", and have some bullets of even more courses in the apprentice when they click on that fourth rectangle.
the 1% rule can give one example, it's a real training, but just use ron's. maybe one more. like the fenway cat worcestetr one. include videos....Then----tease the SD program where the one percent is elaborated upon more. AGAIN, this stuff will be in ONE apprentice course. all the SD training advice stuff. one percent stuff is WOVEN ALL THROUGHOUT...not a separate lesson.
These rectangle squares can all lead to the ONE course. But they have their own blurb and selling points under the image. when you click on winter, etc, the box will describe the bene's, maybe give one or two teachings, but when they click to "access course", they will get the lock language and need to pay.
THIS WHOLE PROGRAM AS PART OF ALL ACCESS HAS TO BE INTENTIALLY BRIEF. EACH COURSE AND TOPIC NEEDS TO LEAD TO THEM WANTING MORE (THEY PAY FOR S.D.).
THIS TRAINING CONTENT DOES NOT NOT NOT HAVE TO BE A BURDEN OR DETAILED. DON'T LET IT BOG ME DOWN. IT'S MEANT TO JUST AUGMENT A BIT AND TO UPSELL TO S.D. ANYWAY.
the style and content of the ONE apprentice course can vary. the winter tips can be in a list format (the lesson), there can be a more TH and video approach to on the trails, etc.
rain, during and after
1% can be mixed into all lessons...keep highlighting it as it pertains to the lesson at hand. THIS HAS TO BE A HUGE STRESSED POINT OF MINE THROUGHOUT. A BIT OF MARYR THING GOING ON, BUT MY HARPING THAT SO MUCH CAN BE PREVENTED....ALSO*****IT ONLY TAKES ONE PERCENT OF THE EFFORT TO GET 99z% OF THE PEACE OF MIND AND BENEFITS.
entering a door
LLM? / pulling
dogs in the car, window open, too close to side,
alarm goes off, rolo jumping up and biting and mouthing leash
these couple above can be alluded to that they are in smaht dog. don't even get into them here. just list them and tease them.
auggie and cali not getting up
too cold to walk, salt hurt feet,
dog not budge but don’t want to yank, people yelling at you,
void under fence, are you being annoying, loud noises from trucks, new and leaving alone, not to get yelled at, snakes, railings and open car windows, mosquitos, sprayed by skunk, head stuck, snappers,
Ways to tease and just list something briefly here that will be in SD in more detail: snakes, mention it as a thing to beware of. that's it. videos and strategies are in the SD course. But we want to make sure it's at least on your mind for now.
MOSQUITOS, stuck in same routine, poop or pee on edge of peoples property,
always know your exit and “what’s next” while on the trails,
say hi, etc
equipment, flex lead, front, prong,
dangers, hazards (quiet road trail, grates, leaves, porcupines, etc.)
on the trails--corners, approaching, wildlife,

Day Trip for Dog Hikes...and More!
If you live some distance away from the Metrowest, MAKE A DAY TRIP OUT OF IT! In the guides included in the Metrowest Dog Hikes section, I give you a bunch of cool things to do while you're in the area.
We often drive up north for the day to see foliage or to ski. Well, why not drive to the metrowest towns of Bolton, Stow and Sudbury for the day? ...You could even do a full weekend and still have more stuff to see!
DOGGIE DAY TRIP SUGGESTION:
My suggestion is to combine Stow's Heath Hen and Bolton's Lime Quarry, if you want to hit more than one of the properties in the Metrowest Region of our Library.
It's not that you can't also work Sudbury's Haynes in there...You can. And it's awesome, trust me. But the Stow and Bolton properties are relatively closer to one another--connect my Rt. 117...a short distance.
You've got at least 3 apple orchards / farms you can visit. Historic sites like the Bolton Pan District. Cool restaurants and coffee shops like the Bolton Bean in Bolton, and Emma's in Stow. Even a pet store in Stow.
But if you're coming from 95/128, you could hit Sudbury first, then decide if you just want to hang in Sudbury with attractions like the Wayside Inn and the other trails that are super close to Haynes.
