Practical Living is a Life Skills class for dogs covering topics needed for everyday life. This course will concentrate on training related to regular day to day experiences in all types of environments.

In this class, we build on the foundations learned in Family Dog Beginners and challenge our dogs to become even more well mannered so that they are welcome anywhere. It will also help prepare your dog for the Canine Good Neighbour test or for going into Therapy work if this is your goal.

Included in this course are maintaining a solid stand stay, impulse control, appropriate meet and greet, sending them to their bed, coming away from a distraction, backing out of the way, doorway etiquette, emergency stays and more. An e-booklet is included.


COURSE PREREQUISITE:  Family Dog Beginners or equivalent group obedience class taken elsewhere. If you took an equivalent class elsewhere, we will assess skill level at lesson 1.

COURSE NAME: Total Recall

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This class is filled with "movement" so it is very important that dogs are friendly and social on and off the leash, and don't lunge out or become reactive.

Teaching your dog to come back to you when called is one of the most challenging things for a dog to learn. There are so many interesting things that they can check out. Having a rock solid recall ensures that your dog can have more freedom while still being safe. Practice makes perfect but it is also tons of fun.

To achieve this, we work on a number of different exercises so that your dog wants to come running back to you, even from major distractions such as toys, food, other dogs and things that move.


COURSE PREREQUISITE:  Family Dog Beginners class or equivalent group obedience class.

COURSE FEE:  150.00 (+ taxes)

COURSE LENGTH:  4 weeks

COURSE NAME: Walk This Way

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This intermediate level course will work on exercises geared to improve your dog's focus, attention and proximity to you while out on a walk.

Having your dog walk nicely on leash is another one of the most difficult things for your dog to learn. Unlike us, a dog sees the world through their nose. This is why they want to sniff everything in the environment while out on a walk.

In order to help them see why walking on a loose leash makes us happy, we need to show them the value in doing so. To achieve this we work on a number of different exercises so that they want to remain with us when they see dogs, people or other distractions.


COURSE PREREQUISITE:  Dog must not be leash reactive and should be friendly with other dogs and people.

COURSE FEE:  150.00 (+ taxes)

COURSE LENGTH:  4 weeks
