PROBLEM SOLVING CLASSES
Our classes provide hands-on training, socialization opportunities and are a lot of fun for both dogs and dog owners!
WALK THIS WAY! LOOSE LEASH WALKING CLINIC
Does your energetic and enthusiastic dog almost pull your shoulder out of joint when he sees another person or dog? Do you have an athletic dog that yanks you towards the nearest tree to chase a squirrel, forgetting that you’re on the other end of the leash? Walking on a loose leash with distractions is challenging, so we’ve created this four week class to help. Each class will focus on skills to reducing pulling and increase self-control. Your dog will learn to check in and keep his focus on you. Completion of a beginning level class is required for enrollment. The class fee is $95.00.
CLICKER TRAINING FOR GOOD MANNERS
In this fun six week class, you’ll be using marker-based training to build attention, teach good manners, and solve problems such as jumping on visitors, bolting out doors, begging for food, and pulling on leash. Handlers will learn how to mark and shape their dogs’ responses, and reinforce the skills that lead to polite behavior. Research supports marker-based learning as being the most effective way for animals to learn, and the relationship that develops between handler and dog while training is the icing on the cake! The cost is $145.
Join us for our version of canine charm school! We’ll explore methods to resolve jumping up, overly exuberant greetings to strangers, pulling on leash, running away, and other unruly behaviors. This focused class is for excited and energetic dogs, but not dogs with aggression problems. Doggy Etiquette lasts for six weeks, and the fee is $145.
LASER FOCUS CLASS
All great dog training begins with your dog paying attention to you! Dogs who have trouble focusing on their handler in the presence of distractions, such as dogs, people, and environmental stimuli. Your dog’s performance at home, and in public, often depends on your dog’s ability to pay attention to you and its surroundings.
