Building Basics (starting 07/11)
Have you recently added a new dog into your family and you want to start off on the right paw, or do you have a dog that needs a refresher on everyday commands? Our six week Building Basics class is structured to provide owners of dogs five months and older with a great opportunity to strengthen the relationship they have with their dog through fundamental behaviors like sit, down, place and come and learning how to incorporate them into real life scenarios. The main goal is to be able to have your dog reliably and consistency execute these commands in low levels of distractions. We will also discuss various aspects of impulse control as well as the concept of loose leash walking. Dogs who graduate from this class will be able to move on to our AKC Canine Good Citizen Preparation class that will be held later this year.
