This course is designed for dogs 11 months and older and will teach you how to better communicate with your dog so problem behaviors don’t eat away at the human/canine bond. We will focus on basic manners such as sit, down, watch me, name recognition, stay, and leave it. This class is specifically designed to be fast paced and relies heavily on owners working with their dogs at home in between classes. This class is taught using positive reinforcement training: we reward the good and ignore the bad! Dogs learn better and faster when training is fun and they have motivation to do the work as opposed to aversive techniques which involve fear and pain. 5 weeks beginning Tuesday November 10 at 7:30-8:30pm $100 for the 5 week session, per dog (first session you will not bring your dog)
