Class Goal: The focus of this class is on strengthening the relationship between owner and dog by increasing communication skills. Positive reinforcement techniques are applied toward Canine Good Citizen goals. Dogs learn to sit-stay, down-stay, come when called, walk on a loose leash, calmly greet a person, and calmly pass by another dog. Problem-behavior trouble-shooting and active, participatory classes. This is a good first-time class or a refresher for students wanting to continue into the Canines for Therapy class.
This class is offered in preparation for enrolling in the Canines for Therapy class.
