Setting your dog up for success is the first step in having a dog that you can take into public with confidence. 
You will be actively engaged in your dog’s training, working as a team as you learn to communicate more effectively with your dog. So what you learn at Kayenna doesn’t have to stay at the Kayenna. Behaviors will naturally transition to life at home with your dog.

Everyday Obedience - Level 1 teaches skills that apply for everyday life! This program will teach you how to make learning FUN for your dog, through our reward-based training methods and various training games! 

Some of the things we work on in this level include:

  • Teaching your dog to Pay Attention!

  • Sit, Down & Stand

  • Settle on a Mat

  • Targeting

  • “The Three D’s” (Duration, Distance, Distraction)

  • Building Impulse Control (Self Control)

  • Polite Greetings (No Jumping!)

  • Recall (Basics & Adding Distractions)

  • Loose Leash Walking (Basics & Adding Distractions)

Why is it important for training to be fun?

At Kayenna, we try to make work=play. When training is FUN for your dog, they like to listen and do what you ask, and they'll even start to pick listening to you over the fun distractions the world has to offer!

What is Impulse Control?

"Impulse Control" is just a fancy way to say "Self Control". Teaching solid Impulse control creates a dog who can be in control of themselves in the face of temptation. This is the difference between a dog that just does what it wants unless we tell it not to, and a dog that automatically knows to leave stuff unless given permission. Having good Impulse control helps prevent a LOT of common behaviour problems such as: Jumping up, barking, pulling on leash, counter surfing/food stealing and so much more. A dog with good Impulse control is also less likely to get distracted by their environment.

everyday obedience - level 2

6 Week Program

Price: $250 + GST

Start Dates:

Thursday, October 21st @ 8:30pm (FULL)

Sunday, October 31st @ 12:15pm (FULL)

Pre-Requisites: Everyday Obedience Level 1 (or approval)

​Do you have a dog that could use a refresher on their obedience skills? Want to challenge yourself and your dog? Do you want to take the Canine Good Neighbour test through the CKC? Then this is the class for you! 

 

This class will use games to take your obedience skills to the next level. Learn how to be more fun, melding movement and food play so your dog can’t take his eyes off you. Use platform training to train a rock-solid stay, even when you run away, food is dropped, or balls bounce by. After playing our off-leash games it should be hard to lose your dog, breezing through turns and pace changes.

This course is designed for dogs who have a basic understanding of obedience skills, including recall, sit, down, stay, rewards, loose leash walking, and are comfortable around many dogs in a busy class setting.

Important Note: This class is not designed for reactive or fearful dogs.
