Bits & Pats - Come When Called & Walk on a Loose Leash
Thursday Mornings at the Canine Conduct Training Grounds.
A bit of training to keep your dog fresh and responding well to your cues. A pat on your back for continuing the training.
Pre-Registration is required.
First and Third Thursdays at 11:00am ~ Reliable Recalls ~ Learn all the steps needed to teach your dog to turn away from distractions and come back to you when you call.
Second and Fourth Thursdays at 11:00am ~ Loose Leash Walking ~ Learn how to teach, and then practice, polite walking with a loose leash. One of the goals is polite meeting & greeting of other dogs and people. Learn how to use the leash to communicate with rather than control your dog.
*$35 for the 1 hour lesson. Canine Conduct Members' rate is $25.
The Bits & Pats is to help your dog learn through all those "even though" distractions; as in "I need you to sit for this greeting even though you are very excited right now". If you have said it - "My dog knows this" and you've said it when your dog is not responding to something you've asked for then you and your dog need more practice. The fact that your dog knows something at home tells us you know how to teach and your dog knows how to learn...BUT can your dog remember all the lessons with other dogs and people around and in a different location? If the answer is "often not!" then this Practice & Review class is for you. Practice really does make perfection. Feeling frustrated? Come out to this class to increase your skills and feel proud of your dog.
*If you are a Well Mannered Dog class graduate, the cost is only $25 for the above! That's the pat on your back for remembering that training is always ongoing.
As with all classes, dogs must me current in their vaccine schedule and free of parasites. Canine Conduct Training Solutions uses force-free training - no prong/pinch, choke or e-collars permitted. We use flat collars or humane harnesses to give our students a pain/fear free learning environment.
