This is when a group of students meet for a predetermined number of weeks, depending on the class being taught, to go through a course of instruction together. The class is taught using the “four D’s” of dog training philosophy.
WHY GROUP CLASSES
Group classes are a good way to introduce your dog to different environments, develop their social skills, and to help them learn to cope with the distractions they will experience when being exposed to other people and dogs.
We will start the training by using food rewards, which will gradually be faded out as progress is made throughout the training sessions. If your dog is not food motivated and you would prefer to use a different type of reward, such as a favorite toy or a tennis ball, this would be an acceptable option to motivate a desired behavior.
Keep in mind, no training will be successful unless you put forth the proper time and effort required. You should consider dedicating at least a half hour, each day, to your dogs training. Consistency and repetition is what will make you and your dog a success.
