Owners are helped to develop control of their dogs through positive training methods. Owners will learn how to train, loose leash walking, sit, down, sit/stay, down/stay; stand/stay; and come. Incentives such as toys and treats are used to reinforce correct behavior. Detailed sheets for at home practice provide students with understanding of how to train the exercises.
This class is for dogs over 10 months old who have little or no formal training. This class is for first time dog trainers whose dogs may know a few basic commands.
