May/June 2020 Class Schedule
Location: Coburn Road East Montpelier Classes start the week of May 24th 6 weeks -$120
Puppy PreSchool- Socialization, relationship building and foundation behaviors. For puppies 8-14 weeks of age when enrolled. Saturdays 9:30 am “Good Dog” Life Skills – This is a new type of class for me. Instead of teaching “obedience skills” we’ll practice real life behaviors like calm, focus, greetings, attentive leash walks, controlled play (human and canine). Teams will work at their own level and pace. Example activities:
Relaxation (Lie down and watch the world go by)
Agility equipment play
Canine play (for those with good social skills)
Brainstorm and practice walking by distractions
Mixed ability levels and ages. Thursdays 9:30 and 6:00 (2 separate classes). First class for humans only. Geeky Training a class for folks who want to delve deeper into the technical aspects of training. Learn about: markers, reinforcement schedules, shaping, fluency, generalization, etc. Thursdays 4:00
Play Group- an opportunity for dogs, with good social skills, to get together and play – Tuesdays 10:00
Tricks and Games-Tricks, scent work, and games class. If you like, your dog can earn an AKC Trick Dog title. Ongoing. Tuesdays 5:30pm FULL
Call, or email, if you need help deciding which class is the best fit for you and your dog.
