Natural Obedience Level One: Working with Your Dog's Drive
March 4th thru April 1st, 2023
In this course, you will learn what truly motivates your dog and how to train obedience behaviors using their natural drive. You will use food, toys, and praise to shape the following commands: Sit, Down, Stay, Place, and Recall. This class is for dogs 6 months and older. We will meet once per week for 5 weeks, and each class runs for 60 minutes.
This program is designed to give you the tools needed in order to build clear communication, trust, and the ability to work as a team with your dog. We will tailor the training to fit your dog’s individual needs.
Please make sure your dog is hungry when they come to class. You should bring their regular food and favorite treats. Please have a bait bag and a four foot lead. We also suggest having a martingale collar, but a slip collar is fine. If you use a flat collar, it must be fitted so that the dog cannot back-slip their collar.
This class is limited to 6 people so there will be a lot of individual attention given. Refunds can only be given if you withdraw at least one week before class begins; otherwise, you will be given a credit for another session.
For each class, you will receive a lesson plan, homework, and videos covering the exercises. This way, if you miss a class, you will still have the materials to keep training!
Class time: Saturdays at 5 pm
Session Dates: March 4th through April 1st
