You will learn important training fundamentals that will build the foundation for a rewarding, life-long relationship with your dog. You will encourage, maximize and maintain your dog’s interest, concentration, enthusiasm, and commitment to engaged interaction with you. This class includes the basics of crate training, dealing with unsolicited jumping, separation anxiety, basic obedience cues, play exercises, self-control games, confidence/focus building exercises and more. Class size is limited and meets once a week for 1 hour.
Well-mannered children are welcome to attend and audit/observe our classes, but must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. Children and dogs may not be left unattended anywhere in the facility. If at any time Think Pawsitive staff feel your children are interrupting or distracting our clients or classes, we will respectfully ask that your children no longer attend. Due to the interactive nature of the classes, children under the age of 13 are NOT allowed to participate in any exercises with a dog. Children over the age of 13 may participate as long as only one handler interacts with the dog for any particular exercise. A number of our exercises are too advanced for many children to quickly grasp. These exercises are better taught to children with guidance and patience from their guardian or parent at home and only after the adult has learned the techniques in class and become comfortable with them.
Deposits must be made at the time of registration in order to hold a spot in the class. If you need to cancel your registration, the deposit is not refundable unless we can fill your spot. All remaining class fees are due upon attendance of the lecture and are non-refundable once the class begins.
PLEASE NOTE: The use of crates and crate games are a significant part of our curriculum. Both treat and toy rewards are used extensively to reinforce dogs for desired behaviors.
