A basic obedience class using a training system that induces our dogs to become attentive to their handler rather than be focused on food treats or gimmick responses. Focusing on creating a positive leadership role and the ability to communicate effectively with our dogs. Using positive reinforcement techniques without the use of food treats. We will be working with the basic commands as well as loose leash walking, “leave it”, “drop it” and more. We will also address proper socialization and problem areas such as chewing, jumping up, mouthing/biting and excessive barking etc.
