      • Riding in the elevator should be done with the dog in a counter position against the wall.
    • Ignoring pet dogs
      • You will be walking through the park surrounding the Arch. You need to keep a safe distance away from pet dogs.
      • It is good to have a canned saying for why they can not visit. “We are in ”
      • Also helps to have one for people that want to pet your dog. “We are in ”
    • Lines
      • Waiting in line can be hard for some dogs when you are first starting. Your dog should sit/stand by your side, down at your feet, or working on blocking behavior.

        • Your dog should have a strong leave it (watch your dog for “shopping”).
        • We would like you to wait in line to ask a question if you are not buying anything.
        • A gentle leader may be useful for keeping control of your dog’s wandering nose.
