In this class, you will take what you learned in Advanced Manners and apply it to real-life situations. You will work on attention games, real-life It’s-Yer-Choice, leash walking with distractions, recalls and stationary behaviors in highly distracting situations or environments staged in our facility. You will learn the importance of being aware of your surroundings and being ready to respond proactively to keep dogs and humans safe and comfortable. You will learn to have reasonable expectations based on your current level of skill, the dog’s experience, and the surrounding situation. You will be able to achieve and maintain control of your dog through safe, positive leash handling and positive methods for focusing your dog’s attention on you. Dogs that need to build focus and/or confidence in real life and every day manners will benefit greatly. Handlers will gain more control and ease of mind when walking their dogs in public or having guests in their home.
