PREREQUISITES: Dogs must be at least 11 months old and must have passed a basic manners class that was structured with positive reinforcement and is choice-based with the use of food rewards or instructor approval. Our program uses high rates of reinforcement to achieve success and to build a strong relationship with your dog.
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. This program will give you the tools to fast track past our Adult Manners class with the necessary skills and knowledge of reinforcement to thrive in successive classes and maintain a strong connection 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.
Crates: Please bring a soft-sided or wire crate for crating and a cover sheet or blanket.
