What’s your dog’s kryptonite? Squirrels? Food on the ground? People? Other dogs? This class is all about getting the behaviors that you have in your home in a wide variety of locations. For a competition dog, this is non-negotiable but pet dogs benefit greatly too! If you want your dog to cooperate with you all the time, even in public, when tired, and when reinforcement is not readily available, this is the class for you!
This class is loosely based on the very popular book “Beyond the Backyard” by Denise Fenzi, with some additions and tweaks specific to competition dogs. Throughout the class we will teach the dogs to listen regardless of where the reinforcement is, on or off your body. In addition we’ll teach the dogs to perform the behaviors in different environments. Your dog will also learn to react to distractions by redirecting back to you – such a helpful skill!!
Competition dog, pet, or both, you and your dog will benefit from this class!
