Whether you just want your dog to be a great companion or hope to start him on the road to competitive dog sports, you’ll need the Basics & more. Encourage your friends and neighbors to train their dogs. It makes for a nice canine community as well as enriching the lives of both human & canine.
We’ve got some great one-day workhops planned for the next few weeks. Everyone had a great time at our Friday with Fido workshops last Friday and we’ve gotten requests for more. So here’s what’s on tap for the next few weeks:
WEEKEND WORKSHOPS with Sheyla Gutierrez (except as noted all workshops are $20 each or 2 on the same night for $35.) Many of these workshops are appropriate for dogs that have been through a Puppy class or Basic Obedience class. If you are not sure if your dog is ready, just ask!
FRIDAY, Sep. 21 at 7:15 pm: WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK: Games and Exercises for Working Through DISTRACTIONS
SATURDAY, Sep. 22nd at 7:45 pm: TREIBALL
FRIDAY, Oct. 5th at 6:30 pm: “It All Begins at the Startline” – Elements of a Good Startline Stay
FRIDAY, Oct. 5th at 7:45 pm: Where’s My Tail?
FRIDAY, September 21 at 6:00 pm: GOT RECALL?
If you want your dog to respond when you call every time and under any situation you must first build up their desire to come to you. In this workshop we will use PREMACK’s Principle (If you do what I want, you will get what you want) in many games and exercises to teach your dog to WANT to come to you. Learn how to use your dog’s natural tendencies to your recall’s advantage! This Workshop is open to dogs of all levels and ages. Limited to 6-8 Working Teams. Please bring lots of tiny treats that your dog can easily swallow.
FRIDAY, September 21 at 7:15 pm: WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK: Games and Exercises for Working Through DISTRACTIONS
Distractions are an unavoidable element of a performance dog’s career – in fact, not even your couch potato can avoid them! Dealing with distractions and learning to work through them, is what takes training to a whole new level and what will “cement” your training and help your dog generalize your cues. Come and learn the 3 D’s of Distractions and how to apply them to your training. Put this new knowledge to the test by challenging your dog in some fun games and exercises.
Spaces will only be held if payment is received prior to class start dates. Refunds for cancellations less than 1 week prior to class start date are only available if your space can be filled off a waiting list.
