July-August 2020 Class Schedule
Location: Coburn Road East Montpelier Classes start the week of July 9th -6 weeks -$120
Puppy PreSchool- Socialization, relationship building and foundation behaviors. For puppies 8-12 weeks of age when enrolled. Contact me about your puppy’s start date. Saturdays 9:30 am Puppy Next Step- a continuation of puppy PreSchool with emphasis on Foundation skills. Saturdays at 11:00 “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, and 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) Canine Good Citizen for dogs who are ready to practice skills in close proximity to other people and dogs. We’ll practice the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test which will be administered the last day of class. CGC is often a preliminary to Therapy Dog testing. Thursdays at 4:30
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
We’ll follow social distancing protocols: wear a mask, wash hands before class, stay a leash length apart, and stay home if unwell. Hand sanitizer available.
Call, or email, if you need help deciding which class is the best fit for you and your dog.
