  • K-9 Academy - Manners 102

    Jun 24th, 2018
    1:00pm - 2:00pm
    Yurt at the Woodland Discovery Playground

    This 5 week course is a follow-up to Manners 101 and builds on the skills you learned there. It's a fun, relaxed way to advance your new training relationship with your dog! Each week we will focus on taking one of your dog's foundation skills (e.g. sit, down, recall, focus, calm settling on a mat, etc.) and get it ready for the real world! We will practice focus and responsiveness around distractions, for longer amounts of time, and at greater distances from you.  We will also teach two intermediate skills that take self-control and precision (for you and the dog!): a closer "heel" walking position (dog right next to your side, walking in step with you), and "stay". Both these new skills can be invaluable in busy public environments, and are a blast to teach and learn. This class is flexible: all exercises are designed to challenge your dog at his or her level, whether you've been working with your dog for six weeks or six years. Each exercise will help you build on the training relationship you've already worked hard to develop, so that you can count on it wherever you take your dog: on walks, to the park, to a public patio, or just around visitors in your home.

    This class is appropriate for: Dog and handler teams that have successfully completed Manners 101 or an equivalent.

    Prerequisite: K-9 Academy Orientation + Manners 101
    Dates: Saturdays | June 2 - June 30
    Time: 1:00pm
    Location: Yurt
    Price: $125 (members), $150 (nonmembers)
