Week 1: Foundations

Session time is spent working on building your bond with your dog. Training during this first class will be kept to a minimum as the class discusses ways on to improve your bond with your dog. We will go into in-depth discussion about behaviors and discussion about specific issues you are having with your dog. Body language will also be discussed so owners can improve their discussions with their dogs by reading of their body language.

Week 2: General Obedience

This session is based upon the fundamentals of obedience; Sit, Stay, Down, Recall, Place. This session will also discuss how to move away from food-based rewards and more into praise-based reward system. Session will also cover general handling of the dogs while running basic obedience.

Week 3: Leash Language

Session is based on teaching leash language. Session covers instructing handlers/owners on how to properly teach your dog leash language. Class will also discuss various equipment to set your dog up to do well rather than setting them up to fail with the wrong equipment. Portion of the class is based outside of the facilities (Weather permitting)

Week 4: Tying it all together

Session is based on tying weeks 1-3 together into a better overall relationship between you and your dog. Class will work on navigating real world situations with distractions. Session will be a little longer with a Q&A on more precise behaviors or issues you are having at home.
