Moving Downtown!

11 Sep

After a long search for a suitable indoor space  for the free training classes offered by Bully Project in Inwood (the neighborhood we have been concentrating on for the last year) that resulted in lots of no thank yous, we are excited to announce we found a brand-new facility in Harlem that is happy to have us!

Doggedly Devoted

Starting in October, Bully Project will be offering classes at Doggedly Devoted on 116th Street near Fifth avenue. Megan, the owner, has opened a very professional yet intimate doggy daycare center. Megan,  a huge believer in science-based and force-free training, is an advocate for adoption. While we visited recently, we had the chance to meet her foster pup (who will probably be a failed foster!), Moon Unit.

We are excited to have indoor space – no more illegal, off-leash dogs, no more elevated train noises, no more intoxicated homeless folks approaching our teams, and no more half-eaten chicken wings!

The pluses are amazing: a clean, temperature controlled room with great acoustics. No more canceling for rain! We are hoping our teams will get even more out of the classes with less distractions. And, an enclosed space will allow Bully Project to offer more specialized classes and workshops like frisbee and K9 Nosework!

But, of course, there are always trade-offs. We will really have to limit our class to 6 dogs. We will have to take RSVPs, no drop-ins. And, we have a rental fee to come up with. We are so grateful to our friends and fellow bloggers at Our Waldo Bungie for helping us with our first round!
