DESCRIPTION: The focus of this class is to begin to build understanding and communication between dog and owner (guardian) by introducing the concept of positive reinforcement training while learning foundation obedience behaviors including watch me, crate games, sit, down, coming when called, loose leash walking, sit for greeting, wait, leave it and drop it, manner skills, and problem solving. Depending on the progression of the class will depend on what may be taught during the class. The first class there will be a discussion about different training tools such as harnesses and martingale collars, but we ask that no one brings their dogs on choke chains, prong collars, or shock collars. Instructors will also use treats as positive reinforcement training. Please bring something that you know your dog already likes as this will help in the class. There should be one dog per handler, but the whole family can come train. Every dog in the same family paying for class needs to have their own handler. The behavior or misbehavior of the dogs will be up to the discretion of the instructor. If your dog is misbehaving and being a distraction to the rest of the class the dog and its handlers may be asked to take a break from the class or to leave for the remainder of the class. If this begins to be a trend over more than 1 class than the dog and its handlers may be removed from the class permanently.
