FOCUS, FUN, & GAMES

 
6 Week Program 

 

Price:  $265 + GST 

Start Dates:​

Thursday, February 29th @ 10:45am (FULL)

Monday, March 25th @ 7:00pm (downstairs) (FULL)

In Focus, Fun & Games, you will work towards teaching your dog the skills and behaviours they need to work around distractions in a variety of settings. Whether you’re interested in scent detection, rally obedience, tricks, or just a well-behaved family member, you and your dog will have much more fun and success when working as a team than fighting against each other. This class will give you the tools you need to succeed, by building engagement with your dog first in a way that is designed to strengthen relationships and reduce frustration.

  • 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 – teach your dog to look eagerly to you for what he can do next

  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.

  5. Help your dog during uncertainty – teach your dog to come to you for information rather than make poor decisions when he doesn’t know what to do

  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!
