Beyond the Basics
In a fun and positive reinforcement environment this class will go beyond
just basic obedience and work on exercises that are used in a variety of dog sports
such as Competition Obedience, Rally, and Freestyle (Heeling to music, Dance).
This class will work on attention; find heel, quick position changes.
Steering commands (forward, backward, side-step right and left), scoot sits, play running,
and spins. We will also begin proofing of sit stays.
This class is geared to teaching your dog the basics of everyday life.
Sit, stay, come, impulse control and door greetings are some
of the exercises covered in this class. Social skill development, body language
and greeting of strangers will also be discussed.
Learn how to: properly use conditioned reinforcers; teach an exercise;
and use fair corrections.
Focus Foundations for REACTIVE Dogs
Do you find yourself walking your dog in the wee morning hours or late
at night to avoid the possibility of passing another dog/person?
Does launching, lunging, barking and growling keep you from walking
your dog at all due to the stress of it all? Then I believe this class can help.
Focus Foundations uses positive reinforcement exercises that teach you control and the skill set to handle situations that were normally tense.
The class works on learning to read your dog better and prevent your dog
from rehearsing unwanted behavior. Attention work, attention to the environment and trust building are core elements to keeping reactivity at a minimum, while working to build positive associations with the site of other dogs and people.
Other topics covered are, visitors to the home, destruction in the home
and submissive peeing.
Control Unleashed is geared for dogs that compete in agility, or any other dog sport, and have difficulty with focus in a high energy environment.
This class is not strictly for performance dogs, even the family pet
can benefit from the exercises taught in this class.
Control Unleashed follows the protocols found in Leslie McDevitt's book
by the same name. Exercises include: Mat work, Whiplash Turn,
Look at That Game, and more.
More Control Unleashed
This class continues the exercises utilized in Control Unleashed. A

Tricks & Tunes ~ Canine Freestyle
Freestyle is a form of DANCING with your dog.
Choreographed to music, it combines tricks and basic obedience maneuvers to put together a dance routine that you and your dog perform together. It is great exercise and fun
for both you and your canine partner.
Whether you just want to have fun in your own living room or get out and compete,
freestyle is a great way to build a wonderful relationship with your dog.
"Musical Freestyle is a choreographed musical program performed by handlers
and their dogs. The object of musical freestyle is to display the dog and handler in a creative, innovative and original dance, using music and intricate movements to showcase teamwork, artistry, costuming, athleticism and style in interpreting the theme of music."
Intro to Canine Freestyle
This class is for dog/ handler teams that would like to do more than just basic obedience.
The class will cover the basics of both "Musical Freestyle" and "Heelwork to Music."
Learning the art of moving with your dog as a team and fun new tricks to put to music
is the basis of this class.
Prerequisite: A basic obedience or manners class
Introduction to Dog Agility
In a positive reinforcement environment dogs (5 months and older) & handlers will be introduced to the performance and handling of all of the obstacles/equipment utilized
in the sport of dog agility. Dog & handler safety is paramount, so class work
will be appropriate for the age and skill/experience level of the class participants.
Come to have FUN with your dog and enhance your relationship!
In a positive reinforcement environment dogs & handlers will learn/work
with the "downsized" Teacup equipment (intended for dogs 17" at the shoulder and under) and develop/enhance their course analysis and handling skills to provide the dog/handler team with the clean, clear and timely communication, confidence and success!
