  • Do you want to improve your dog’s manners? This course advances the skills and games you learned in your previous puppy or adult manners class. You will expand It’s-Yer-Choice and Crate Games to help set boundaries and improve control. You will strengthen your dog’s understanding of “Sit” and “Down” through longer duration, harder distractions and from longer distances. Recalls will also be proofed with greater distance and distraction and, once your loose-leash walking with distractions has been mastered, you will be introduced to off-leash work! In addition to many other skills, you will be cueing your dog to a mat or bed from long ranges and teaching him/her to maintain that behavior with increased duration and distraction as well as teaching him/her to calmly greet people and dogs. PREREQUISITE: Must have completed Think Pawsitive’s Beginner Puppy School, Adult Manners or Canine IQ Camp. Class will be held at: Think Pawsitive Dog Training 301 Commerce Street, STE F Waukesha, WI 53186

  • This is a two-week class for adult dogs to learn to swim, build confidence, and be socialized to our swim center and grooming services. Dogs will be taught to wear a life jacket, develop their swimming technique, and retrieve toys in the water. Motivational games will be used to encourage your dog to swim enthusiastically. We will also cover proper handling techniques for bathing, drying and brushing out your dogs.
    PREREQUISITES: For adult dogs – 16 weeks of age and older. Each dog is worked individually during this class, so dogs must be comfortable resting in a crate during other dogs' swim sessions.  Must be comfortable being picked up or handled by people. Must have passed a basic manners class that was structured with positive reinforcement and is choice-based with the use of food or instructor approval. Our program uses high rates of reinforcement to achieve success and to build a strong relationship with your dog. No pinch collars, choke collars or flex-leashes are allowed in our facility. The only leash aids that are allowed are a Gentle Leader head halter, Sensation Harness, or Comfort Flex harness. 2-Week Course - 60 minutes (Maximum of 4 dogs per session) CLASS MEETS: Mondays, October 28th & November 4th, 2019 at 6:00 pm
