Our Foundations class is where we start all dogs and owners.  Training techniques are just like learning a sport. Timing and mechanics are critical for making sure our dogs understand our cues or if they are following a treat or lure.  Foundations also provide you with the skills to train around distractions such as other dogs, squeaky toys, people, etc. It helps everyone also understand how their dog does do in a class environment.   

What you will learn:

  • Release from a stay 
  • Techniques for efficient training sessions
  • How to set training up so your dog can listen
  • Relax on a mat - automatically without being asked.
  • Silent leave it
  • Paying attention to you around distractions
  • Foot targeting - so in later classes, you can direct your dog to a location from a distance
  • Beginning stay
  • Beginning Polite Greetings

The class is only four weeks, so we may evaluate which dog-human teams will be ready for the seven-week Basic Manners.
