Handler’s Choice! Class

In this 6-week class the instructor will help you reach some personal goals with your dog (within reason!).  Prerequisite is that you’ve attended an Elementary Class.  If you’ve already completed an Intermediate/CGC Class as well, you’ll be even better prepared to work on your own person “wish list.”  Come to the first class with a list of 6-10 behaviors you’d like to work on over the next 6 weeks and we’ll help you with an individualized curriculum.

Think about what you’d like to work on. For instance:

  • Would you like to fine tune that loose leash walk?
  • How about a more reliable recall?
  • What about tricks – spin, bow, skateboarding, weaving your legs, ringing a bell?
  • How about working on your shaping skills to teach fun behaviors?
  • Need to work on building more duration? A longer stay for instance.
  • Need to learn how to work around distractions?
  • Do you have a pesky behavior issue such as barking, chewing or digging?

Prerequisite:   You and your dog must have graduated from either the private or group Elementary Clicker Training Course (or equivalent).
