FOCUS, FUN, & GAMES

6 Week Program 

 

Price:  $250 + GST 

Start Dates:​

Coming in the Fall!

In Focus, Fun & Games, we will transform naughty dogs into nice partners. Whether you’re interested in scent detection, rally obedience, tricks, or just a well behaved family member, it’s difficult to succeed when your dog is more interested in checking out distractions than working with you. This course will give you the tools you need to succeed, by building engagement with your dog first.  

  • Do you want to do more with your dog, but are struggling with his unpredictable behavior?

  • Are you frustrated with a dog who behaves well at home, but seems to forget everything when you’re out in distracting environments?

  • Are you embarrassed when your dog barks at other dogs and lunges on the leash?

  • Is your dog more interested in zooming around than coming back to you when you take off his leash?

We’ll show you how to build a solid foundation with laser focus, a stronger bond, and better success. By playing fun, easy, fast games you’ll build a more rewarding relationship with your dog. You’ll learn how to be more fun, so your dog eagerly looks for ways he can work to please you instead of sniffing the ground. And you’ll develop the skills you need to confidently take your dog new places.

You’ll learn:

  1. Engagement – transform your dog so he eagerly looks for what he can do next to please you

  2. Focus – your dog will pay more attention to you even when you do and say nothing

  3. Be more rewarding – create reward events and use food play instead of just being a Pez dispenser. Everyone will want to be your dog.

  4. Impulse control –Expect more from your dog than saying leave it. Train him to ignore food on the floor as a default behavior, and look to you for permission to take food

  5. Exciting, fun boundary games – your dog will want to stay at a table or crate when distractions run or fly by. You’ll learn to balance the drive for work with calm and confidence.

  6. Introduce new environments with a plan to set your dog up for success, including acclimation and dealing with environmental distractions.

Once your foundation is in place, you’ll be amazed at how your dog follows you, looking for the next chance to work with you! 

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

What is the Dog Fitness Class?
Just like us, dogs can benefit from a stretching and strengthening program. It can build and maintain muscle mass, improve body awareness and balance, and provide a physical and mental workout. Canine athletes definitely gain an advantage from this type of conditioning, but senior dogs also need to stay limber. Couch potatoes and bored dogs can reap rewards too, because the activity is mentally stimulating. And some of these exercises can even be tailored to puppies as part of their training and socialization.
Prerequisites: None
