About the Event
Open to anyone who as taken group obedience with me in the last year.
Whether you are just looking for an opportunity to improve your relations and control of your dog, raise a well balanced dog or prepare your dog for therapy work, you and your dog will be transformed by this class. This course combines the spirit of dog psychology and the power of the PACK. You will be amazed how quickly your dogs will learn from this approach when we harness the energy of pack leadership and the other dogs. The best is we can do most of this without ever talking to the dog, through our energy, intention and body language.
This is NOT for doggies with aggressive behavior. I offer private sessions to address aggression to enable you and your dog to participate in group classes. Dogs must be at least 6 months old, in good health and fine with dogs and people.
What we will cover: Getting your dog's attention "Focus", Calmness in Public, Loose Leash, *Heel, *Solid Recall, *Leave It, *Place, *Stay (Duration), Greeting Strangers, Greeting other Dogs.
What is required from you: Have an open mind, be willing to put in the work and have fun. Family members are welcome as long as their is one primary handler that is commited to coming to all the classes. Children must be under your control.

Rules Of Engagement:
No retractable leashes or harnesses allowed. Slip Lead, Pinch Collar, and/or The Sidekick (Transitional Leash) are recommended tools. You can order The Sidekick at k9lifeline.com.
