Focus and Impulse Control Class
with Bonnie Henderson
starting October 22nd, 2020 at 3:00 PM
Does your dog pay more attention to other people or other dogs than you?  Is your dog more interested in sniffing the floor than working? Does your dog get wild and crazy in stimulating situations? Or maybe you would just like your dog to have better manners or focus when he or she is working with you. Then this is the class for you.
Not only will this be a great class for the young impulsive dog who needs to learn better manners, but this class also prepares dogs for advanced training in agility, obedience, or rally.  In this 4 week session, you will learn at many exercises to work on focus & impulse control. Students will be expected to practice these at home daily for homework. 

In-person is limited to 6 working spots.
Agility FUNdamentals
with Pam O'Day
starting October 13th, 2020 at 2:30 PM
Agility classes with Pam O’Day are interactive, and students are encouraged to stop and analyze handling strategies, offer suggestions, and encourage one another. Pam teaches students how to break down courses into manageable segments, analyze handling lines to find the most efficient path for both dog and handler, and regularly presents exercises to increase a dog’s potential. Agility is about more than just running a course, and students in Pam’s classes often discuss preventive health care matters, health issues that affect agility dogs (and handlers), the rules and regulations that govern agility, and sharing of information about trials and competition experiences. 6 weeks with option to continue. $140 (inc. taxes)

 To be considered for Pam’s classes, you will need your dog to have: 
  • a solid recall
  • sit
  • stay
  • leave it
  • down   
A sense of humor, and a strong work ethic is preferred, as well! If your dog has not attended obedience classes, but has been trained at home, please call the office at 860-646-5033 for a brief evaluation.
