This includes what you will need for the class and class protocol for you and your dog. A slide show on “How Dogs Learn 101” and the use of the “clicker” will be shared.  This class is without your dog.  This class is mandatory.

Skills include but are not limited to: shaping and targeting behaviors, attention and focus, sit, down, settle, stay, mine/take it, techniques to build for loose-leash walking.  We will use a “clicker” to mark the desired behavior.
