Holiday Workshops

Give Your Dog The Gift of Training!  Get Them Ready to Ring in the New Year!

We’re offering special holiday workshops to prepare your dog to be a Superstar in the New Year.  There’ll be workshops for Show Ring Readiness, Tricks and Attention Training & Heeling. Workshops consist of three one-hour sessions for just $75. Use our online enrollment form to sign up.

Increasing Dog Attention

Better Heeling Through Targeting

7 pm – Mondays, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14
Get and keep your dog’s attention by reinforcing heel position.  A dog that doesn’t pay attention is unable to maintain an accurate heel position, which matters not just in the show ring but as a well behaved companion. This class will use targeting to help you get and keep your dog’s attention for a more reliable heel.

Tricks

7 pm – Tuesdays, Dec. 1, 8, 15 
Would you like to do something fun with your dog that also builds their confidence and strengthens your bond? Want to impress your family and friends with clever behaviors you have taught your dog? Then this class is for you! This is just the beginning of earning AKC Trick titles for your dog or just having tons of fun.

Show Ring Readiness

7 pm – Wednesdays, Dec. 2, 9, 16
It takes consistent training to get your dog ready for the show ring! Work on holding a stand while being examined by the judge, proper position for a “free stack”, cavaletti pole work for balance and core strengthening, ring patterns and finessing gaiting speeds for optimal presentation.
