Courteous Canine - This
is the foundation class for dogs and puppies over 5 months of age that have
had no previous training or have been to puppy class (even though there will
be some repetition.) Dogs and their handlers learn basic obedience behaviors
and manners such as to sit, lie down, settle, stay, come when called, walk
without pulling on leash, to leave things alone, and to pay attention to the
handler. Handlers themselves learn how to painlessly prevent and/or eliminate
undesirable bad habits such as stealing food, jumping on people, and
excessive barking. This fun and enjoyable class requires a happy untrained
dog, a motivated handler who will practice, soft yummy treats, and a favorite
toy. The result of this class is a loving, cooperative partnership that sets
your relationship with your dog off to a good start and continues for all of
his/her lifetime. Real life training for real life situations!
Got a ball crazy dog? Let us channel that energy and teach him a
cool sport! Who knows, maybe we can work up a team.
