Life Skills II – Group Class is for those who want a dream dog, the ‘example’ dog. This course will not only teach you how to train your dog advanced skills but you will also learn principles and how to apply them for life long training. 

We will build more advanced skills in the most difficult scenarios, such as in front of a plate of food, introduction of new people, a ringing doorbell and new dogs!   Using a clicker and positive reinforcements we will challenge you and your dog. Some of our topics will include:

  • Calming and Focus Exercises
  • Off leash recall
  • Off leash Drop
  • Off Leash "Heel & Right"
  • Retrieve (play fetch)
  • A few "party tricks" for fun
