We are now offering a drop-in class every other Saturday from 10:00-11:00 am. We will be working on our dog-handling skills, obedience, healing reactivity, and just basically having fun with dogs while learning the Canine Core Method.
The first class will take place on September 1st, at 10 Nelsen Road in Scarborough, Maine. Please understand that while this is a "group class" we will be working dogs one at a time. However, if your dog is extremely reactive or you don't wish to handle him around other dogs, this may not be the right class for you, and you can instead check out our private training sessions.
Classes are $25 each and should either be pre-paid by purchasing here on our website, or you can RSVP to Leah by calling or texting 207-939-6210 and plan to pay with cash or check.
Things to consider: please have your dog on a no-slip martingale collar or slip lead. It's also useful if they have a back-clip harness. You should BYO bait bag with your dog's favorite food and treats (and make sure he's hungry, no breakfast!). You can also bring his favorite toy for a game of tug! Of course, your dog must be leashed as we will be working around other dogs, so please have a four or six-foot lead.
This class is weather dependent since it is held outdoors. If Saturday is rainy, we will often push the class to Sunday. If you are unsure about the weather, please text Leah to find out if class is in session: 207-939-6210. If you paid for a class and it was cancelled due to weather, you will have a credit for the next available class (or something that works for your schedule).
If you are a brand-new client and are unsure of your dog's temperament around other dogs, we may require an assessment before you join this class.
Here's what one of our past students, Kate, had to say about this class:
"We have benefited HUGELY from doing the exercises every day, especially the hand feeding and calming massages. We’ve definitely gotten our money’s worth out of this class.
Our whole relationship with Angus has changed. He now will come to us most of the time when we call him off a chipmunk or other prey. He’s more focused on us and is so much calmer, and we plan to keep on with the training until we’re confident that we’ve all got it down and it’s become second nature.
We’re really grateful for this class. We’d recommend this course to anyone looking to correct, soothe, connect to, and bond with their dog."
