If your dog has Behavior Issues call before purchasing packages

** Prerequisite Basics Group Class or Trainer Approval. 

** Your dog must already have an understanding of Basic Obedience for this class.  Sit, Down, Stay, Place, Recall.

 

****** Be sure to attend a Train Through Game Orientation prior to coming to your first class.

 

This Class is for Puppy and Adult dogs over 4 months old.

The Training is done through game such as Tug, Ball, Flirt-pole, Spring Pole etc.  We find what YOUR dog enjoys and begin a higher level of training from the start. 

 

An amazing thing happens when you use game/play in training.  We get a dog that really enjoys the work portion of the session!  This is due to the fulfillment he/she gains through the relationship time spent playing with YOU.  Along with the WAY we play the game.  We create a higher level of impulse control and a much higher bond in relationship.

We satisfy Mental and Physical needs in our dogs which will create a much more fulfilled and happy dog.  We teach our dogs to move in and out of an adrenalized/excited state to a clam happy relaxed state.

Training Through Game allows us to control the environment while allowing the dogs to practice high levels of adrenaline/excitement while we work them in and out of state of mind changes, obedience and more.

 

We will only have 4 spots available for each class as we will work one on one with each person. You will absolutely learn from EVERY dog/handler team that enters the training space.

PLEASE BRING A NOTEBOOK AND TAKE NOTES.  

 

What you will learn:

HOW to use game with your dog for training and the importance of understanding the Game you are playing.

You will work on higher levels of Impulse Control to strengthen everything you have learned in Basics.

This class is to learn The Game your dog loves and move through their basic obedience.  Training Through Game Level Two will go into new more advanced behaviors. 

 

*This is also the pre-requisit class for anyone wanting into Sports Club.

*You will be working on and off leash during class.

 

Plan on a more physical training session as it IS through game, wear appropriate clothing and shoes, ensure your dog is on a safe leash and collar that they can not get out of.
