About this class
Successful dog training depends upon attention. If a dog is distracted or disengaged from his owner while training, his learning progress will be slow.
Teaching your dog to pay attention to you is not just a useful skill but also a very important one. When your dog is paying attention to you, he’s not jumping on your friends, sniffing other dogs, or stealing the neighbor’s son’s ice cream cone. In addition, when your dog is focused on you, you can give him commands (sit, stay, wait, etc.) and he can do it…because your puppy is focused! Focus training is one of the most valuable behaviors that you will use nearly every day.
Prerequisite: Recommended for dogs 12 months old and younger
All Dogs must be current on all vaccinations. If your dog reacts negatively toward other dogs or people or has severe behavior issues, these classes will not be a good fit. Contact Understanding Your Dog for private sessions, which will be the better option.
