Class: Advancing with Behaviors
Where: Online and Saranac Lake Training Center When Restrictions are Lifted
When: Saturdays at 9:30am – May 9th – May 30th
Duration: 4 Weeks
Have you completed a basic training class and feel your dog needs a bit more training? In this class, we’ll build on the basic behaviors your dog has learned as well as address any “problem” behaviors you’d like. We will also have time to address more advanced training techniques such as behavior chains and training for the three “d’s” (distraction, distance, and duration). We can review the common behaviors you might need of your dog such as calming down in the crate or on a mat, polite greetings, polite walking, focusing on you instead of strangers, the foundations for a solid recall, and anything else you need.
- We do not expect class dogs to be at the same level or have the same background in learning. We are happy to accommodate the differences.
- We teach humans as well as dog with fully positive, encouraging methods. The classes are designed to enjoyable as well as fun!
- Our group classes are a commitment to your dog as well as the other participants in the class.
Prerequisite: One of these: Basic Manners, Precious Puppies, Private Lessons, or the equivalent class with another training organization
How Does the Online Approach Work?
Once a week we’ll meet in a virtual online classroom to discuss common training questions (like we’d do during an in-person class). These lessons will last up to an hour depending upon the number of registrants. In these lessons, we’ll watch you work with your own dog and give you feedback as well as ideas for progression in your training. We will utilize breakout rooms for students to work with each other and learn from group questions. We think you’ll enjoy being in a group class setting from the comfort and convenience of your own home!
