Handlers will learn how to help their dogs learn household manners in a positive way. Dogs learn a variety of vocabulary words such as:
Watch me – it’s necessary to have your dog’s attention in order for your dog to focus and learn
Leave it – very important (could be a life saving command)
Sit, Stand, Down, Come, Wait, and Stay are other important words for your dog to know and do.
Socialization with other dogs is an important part of this class. Dogs will have an opportunity to interact with the other handlers and their dogs.
The Canine Good Citizen objectives will be addressed during the classes.
Topics for discussion are held at each class session
e.g. healthy food and treats. How to choose? What to look for on the package? Other topics: games to play at home, teeth and nail care, and owner suggested topics..
