Positive Basic Training

Taught by Michelle Carroll & April Hartman (as noted on schedules) this 7-week class is packed full of useful dog training and rearing information. Dogs 6 months and older will enjoy learning new skills or improving old ones with the use of reward based and force free techniques. We will dig deep into answering the question of WHY does my dog do that? What are they saying, how are they feeling, how can I undo a learned behavior? We often forget they are emotional beings capable of feeling some of the same emotions humans feel. All to often these emotions affect their train ability and health. As we explore getting to know your dog we will teach them useful skills such as sit, down, settle, stay, leave it, come, loose leash walking, meet n greet people & dogs, drop it, impulse control and confidence building. You will learn corresponding hand signals, working from a distance and with distractions. At the end of this class you and your dog will know what to expect for the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizenship Test. A mock test will be given at the end of the class and prepare you for our Positive Advanced Skills Training Class.
