CONTROLLED UNLEASHED-NEW CLASS !     ON HOLD

WHO IS THIS FOR? Dogs who lack confidence, who appear shy. Dogs who are unable to deal with other dogs and people in the environment and react by barking or some lunging.

WHAT WILL BE COVERED: Pattern games based on creating a predictable framework for your dog, thus alleviating their anxiety and stress. Your dog will be able to make better choices in how to react to the environment.

 

PRE-REQUISITE (FOR THIS WORKING CLASS): Dog must be current on vaccinations. You will need to have your dog on a flat buckle collar or no-slip (martingale) collar and a 6 foot leash – better yet is to use a no-pull harness*. Bring TONS of treats, and water and a bowl for your dog along with a mat for your dog (can be a crate pad or bath mat or similar small rug). Clicker knowledge will be an advantage to you and your dog.  * These harnesses are fitted and sold at Godfrey's.

 

Class is $180 for the six week session.
