Skills like sit, down, come, walking on a loose leash, wait, are interspersed with tricks, games and puppy agility. The more you interact with your dog, the more she/he will want to obey you. We do plenty of on-leash socialization with other people and dogs and we use positive rewards like praise, food and toys. Grooming, teeth brushing, health tips, healthy food and treat ideas are also part of the curriculum. Individual attention with your questions respected and answered and homework sent weekly via e-mail to reinforce what's been done in class. We love dogs and we'd love to have you join us.
