Well-mannered children are welcome to audit/observe our classes but must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. If at any time Think Pawsitive staff feel your children are interrupting or distracting the 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.

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.
