Recommended for Dogs 6 month & older
This class is designed to work on basic skills, manners, communication and problem solving in a low stress and fun environment. We will show you how to keep your dog's attention by teaching watch me and focus work, as well as consistency in sit, down, wait/stay, recall (come) and loose lead walking using specific techniques to encourage proper body positioning. We will teach the importance of targeting, place training, and impulse control skills, along with clicker training and markers (verbal and non-verbal) to aid in the training process. You will learn so much more than just the basics of obedience, as we delve into reading your dog's body language and learning about canine psychology and how your dog thinks. You will learn how to effectively communicate with your dog, and each owner/dog will be given individual instruction and advice, as we realize that no two dogs or owners are alike, nor do they learn in exactly the same way. The first class will be held without your dog present as there is so much information to cover about the things you will be learning.
