Enjoyable Paws Basic Obedience

Ellie

In this 5-week class, your dog will learn all about positive reinforcement and how to train in a way that works and that is FUN for both you and your dog. You will learn what to do when training seems not to work and how to set your dog up for success by setting gradual expectations. By the end of the class we will make sure your dog will know how to sit, lie down, stay, watch you, touch, leave it and how to walk nicely on a loose leash.

Enjoyable Paws is suitable for dogs of all ages.

Reactive Paws

Bishop

Do you have a dog that exhibits on-leash reactivity, such as barking and lunging, when he or she sees other dogs? Does your dog become stressed, uncomfortable, or over-aroused in the presence of other dogs, and do you have a hard time keeping your dog calm and focused when other dogs are around? This may be the class for you!

In this 5-week class, we will help you understand your dog’s reactivity, and will give you methods for managing and modifying it. Our goal is to help you teach your dog focus, impluse control and relaxation so that walks and outings can be more fun and less stressful for you both. Over time we can change the dog’s emotional response to his or her “triggers”.

Dogs who do NOT fit into Reactive Paws Class
•Dogs who have done major damage to another dog (such as hospitilizating another dog)
•Dogs who bite their handlers when their handlers try to redirect them from focusing on another dog

For dogs who do not fit into a Reactive Paws class, we would recommend consulting with an in-home trainer first.

Note: There is a limit of 5 dogs per class.

What a great way to help your dog use one of her greatest assets to build confidence and provide mental stimulation.

Polite Paws

Mickey

This 5-week class is designed to tackle pushiness and lack of patience in a positive way while being proactive. It’s a perfect class if your dog is just a little too spoiled and you would like them to listen better when you are home alone as well as impress your guest with how well-behaved your pooch is.

By the end of the class you will have many tools to work on but not limited to: jumping, begging for food, begging for attention, barking for attention and nudging your hand to get more pets.

Loose Leash Walking

IMG-2551

This class will give you and your dog the tools to make walking enjoyable. Learn how to walk together with less pulling and better focus. If you’re tired of taking your dog for a walk being a chore, this is your class.

We will work on leash handling skills, getting your dog getting used to the feeling of loose leash, as well as different tools that we’ll use to help keep your dog’s attention while on walks. We’ll walk outside with other dogs and distractions. We will also learn troubleshooting in case your dog gets overly excited by  distractions, and show you tips on how to successfully pass other dogs while walking and how to keep your dog safe! Our Loose  Leash training Class will teach your dog to stop pulling you during the walks. It is not a perfect heel which keeps your dog  strictly by your side. It allows your dog to sniff and explore the neighborhood as long as you leave slack in his leash.
