All About Impulse Control!

A lack of impulse control can cause a multitude of behavioral issues.  They can range from not paying attention, to chasing squirrels or cars, not coming back when called, pulling on the leash, jumping all over you, furniture, and people they meet, counter-surfing, and eating objects like rocks, and mulch.  If mishandled, these behaviors can turn into frustration on leash or around your home. 

This class will cover advanced levels of Recall (come when called), loose leash walking, heel, stay, automatic sit, Leave-it, Drop-it with high value objects, proper greetings of dogs and people. We will focus on teaching your dog to control emotions and take direction from you.  This will open the door to some proper off-leash work. 

Prerequisite: Obedience I & Obedience II.  Obedience III is strongly recommended but not required. Certificate of Completion is earned.

Obedience III

5-week course for $125

Exactly how it sounds, this class is geared towards more advanced commands and distractions.  At the end of this class, you will have the option of taking the Canine Good Citizen test (CGC by the AKC).  Your dog will be suited to accompany you to busy places or real life situations.  When you graduate this class, you should be better prepared for an active lifestyle.  This 5-week course is designed specifically for dogs 6 months and older.  Prerequisite: Obedience I, Obedience II, or equivalent.  Graduation Diploma earned.
