Sunday, March 3rd 1:00pm-3:00pm (Part 1)
Sunday, April 7th 1:00-3:00pm (Part 2)
Precision heeling foundation workshop. This two part workshop will get you started with the skills needed for enthusiastic and correct focused heeling. We will focus on foundational skills for dogs starting their heeling journey.
This workshop will be designed to give you lots to work on between the two lessons, so that the dogs are able to progress to the next level in part two.
This class is appropriate for dogs 6 months and older or for puppies that already have a strong learning foundation.
This fun class is for graduates from our Puppy Pre-School and Kindergarten classes. In this session we will continue to build on your puppy's basic manners with a focus on polite greetings with people, impulse control, solid stays, and will practice "leave it" and "drop it" skills.
This practical and fun class is for graduates from our Puppy and Obedience programs. In this session we will use games and engagement to further build on loose leash walking skills and practice recall. These fundamental skills will be proofed with distractions in a safe environment.
This class is ideal for dogs that are working towards their "Canine Good Neighbour" title, or for handlers that would like to have a polite, well-rounded dog that they can take anywhere. This is a fun class where dogs will be challenged with increased distraction, duration, and distance. Participants can expect to work on heeling, longs stays, polite greetings and obedience.
Prerequisite: Everyday Obedience-Level 1 or higher

CANINE GOOD NEIGHBOUR
The Canine Good Neighbour Program is a 12-step test, that when completed successfully, will ensure that one of our most favoured companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of our communities right across the country. Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.
The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps. It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler's ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
The 12 Steps:
Accepting A Friendly Stranger
Politely Accepts Petting
Appearance and Grooming
Out For A Walk
Walking Through A Crowd
Sit/Down On Command and Stay In Place
Come When Called
Reaction To A Passing Dog
Reaction To Distractions
Walking Through A Door/Gate
