Classes will focus on teaching dog owners how their dogs learn and how to teach basic movements. The classes would also teach when to add distractions for growth and timing and strategies for corrections.

Prerequisites for the classes are that the dogs must not be aggressive towards other dogs or people and or excessive barkers. We will be using food and play to teach. Please bring soft dog treats (something the dog really likes), leash, and collar.
