BASIC LEASH SKILLS                     Weeks: 3 | Fee: $150

Walking politely on the leash is the foundation to a well-behaved, attentive dog. A dog that can walk on a loose leash is a dog that knows how to take direction from their owner around all kinds of different distractions.  It can also assist in getting a much better recall and even helps to ease anxiety in nervous dogs as it gives them a single task to focus on versus being overwhelmed by their environment.  A loose leash walk is definitely the skill to have if you plan on taking your dog out to public settings! 

This class is good for either dogs just starting out with their leash training or for dogs/owners that need to start over and relearn the basics of a loose leash walk. Each week will build on the previous week so you should not sign up for this class if you cannot attend all three weeks consecutively. 

Collars or training collars preferred but front clip harnesses or head halters are also acceptable. 

Prerequisite: No prior training needed; dog must be 6 months or older. ** This is not a class for dogs with reactivity issues. Please contact me for a private lesson referral if your dog is reactive or aggressive**

INTERMEDIATE 2                            Weeks: 3 | Fee: $150

This is a class for previous students that have completed Pooch the Limits intermediate class or a Stay and Train program with me.  We will primarily focus on doing commands in motion which helps create a faster, verbal-only response from your dog.  This is a good segue into the advanced class.

ADVANCED                                      Weeks: 3 | Fee: $150

This is a great follow up class to the Intermediate 2 class or for those ready to work outside and off leash more.  Our main focus will be getting solid responses on basic commands without the leash in our hands and without the use of training collars.  Class will be held outdoors.

Prerequisite: Open only to those that have previously completed Pooch the Limits intermediate, or  Intermediate 2, or a Stay and Train program with Dogs in Progress. Sorry, no exceptions.  No dog aggressive dogs will be allowed in this class.  Most of the class is off-leash so only safe, dog-friendly dogs are allowed to attend.

FOUNDATION AGILITY Weeks: 6 | Fee: $215

INSTRUCTOR:  MARGARET HUGHES

Are you brand new to agility? Then this is a great class to start with! You’ll learn all the agility
obstacles, start sequencing and learn some of the basic handling moves to complete a course. Foundation Agility
is the cornerstone of the sport of dog agility. Dogs safely learn to navigate equipment, while also
cultivating confidence, body awareness and a bond with their handler. Taught in a positive environment, dog
agility helps develop a strong working relationship between handler and dog, while at the same time teaching
skills that go far beyond agility.

The goal of this class is to safely introduce a dog and owner team to the world of dog agility.

Prerequisite: Dogs must have completed a previous obedience class;  Absolutely no dog aggressive behavior allowed. Dogs must be 4 months or older.
