How to Improve Your Child’s Birthday Party!

CPT Birthday Party Performance

We all know that CPT has Atlanta’s best group classes, private lessons, in-home private lessons, and board training.  But, did you know that CPT trainers and dogs are also available to entertain at birthday parties?

On June 20, 2015, CPT Trainer Karen Smalley and her Border Collie, Bodhi, performed at a Dunwoody 6-year old’s birthday party.  The child told her mother that she wanted “to be a dog trainer,” which prompted the mom to contact CPT.

Mom asked whether we could construct a show that was both entertaining and educational for children of a first and second-grade level.

CPT’s Mark Spivak replied, “Yes, we can.”

Then, CPT Trainer Karen Smalley produced the event.  The presentation consisted of

obedience, agility, and trick demonstrations, petting, and even allowed the birthday girl to handle Bodhi during several obedience and agility exercises.  Perhaps it was her preliminary interview for a future career with CPT!

If you believe that a CPT performance will be a nice inclusion to your child’s birthday party, please give CPT a call at 404-236-2150 or contact us by email through our website:

If this gets to be big, we may even start doing weddings and bar mitzvahs!
