This small group session will allow you to work with your dog one on one and develop better management of behaviors. Building your dogs confidence is key to establishing a well behaved dog. It's time to refocus your efforts and let us help you set the foundation for a great working relationship with your dog. Learn about body language of dogs, approaching a dog, leash rules and more.
This class is NOT for reactive dogs.
Dog Parkour - Described as "Urban Agility", dog parkour is a great way to work out with your dog! Dog Parkour (TM) combines elements of human parkour and dog agility to create an accessible activity for dogs and humans alike. Dogs get introduced to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different obstacles in their everyday world. A great way to boost your dog's confidence and learn something totally new!
Private training- When your dog has behaviors that require one on one training, or to work without other dogs present, we offer private one on one training time. We will focus on behavior modification and reducing your dogs stress while learning. Call to schedule an evaluation for private training. An evaluation will give us a starting point to give you a path for training. Call 815-823-9279.
Get ready for CGC - Does your dog have what it takes to be a Canine Good Citizen? Let us help you find out in this class series that covers the requirements for the CGC Evaluation. When you complete the course, we can provide a testing date!
We recommend that puppies be at least 12 weeks old with 3 rounds of puppy shots completed Rescue dogs who are older than 12 weeks should have been with you for at least 2 weeks post adoption to ensure their health and comfort level with the handler.
