We bring dogs into our families as companions to share our lives. How much of our lives they can fully and happily share is ultimately determined by their level of training and their habituation to different situations and environments.

It is our goal that each person and dog in our classes have the best training experience possible. We cover a great deal of information in our Intro to Dog Behavior and Clicker Training seminar and our Basic Manners classes that are the foundation for what we work on in our Level 2 and Level 3 classes. For that reason, we have the following requirements for anyone enrolling in a Level 2 or Level 3 class.

Prerequisites for Level 3 Classes

  • Successful completion of our Basic Manners course OR
  • Completion of our Intro to Dog Behavior and Clicker Training seminar AND
  • Successful completion of an assessment by a member of our training staff. An assessment will involve asking you and your dog to perform a variety of behaviors that you and your dog would have learned in Basic Manners and our Level 2 classes. We will be looking at how you work with your dog (cueing, reinforcement, handling, etc.) and how well your dog responds to you in a variety of scenarios. An assessment typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes, and the fee is between $15 and $30, depending on the time involved. You may schedule an assessment by contacting Don at 945-6841, x103.

Level 3 Classes

This six-week class brings it all back together and focuses on fine tuning the behaviors you and your dog have been working on. Key behaviors practiced include working around even greater distractions and proofing behaviors in a variety of situations. Practice will range from dogs learning to remain seated while being petted by individuals in wheelchairs to sitting and downing whenever you ask no matter what you are doing or where you are.

We’ll also begin to combine basic behaviors into more complex chains of behaviors. Whether your intent is a certification as a Therapy dog/handler team or just a wonderful companion, this class will help you and your canine companion achieve your goals.

The fee for this class is $105.
