Description

Class Experience

In this 4-week course, students will learn how to work with their dogs and teach basic obedience at home! 


Students will learn how to teach their dogs 

Watch Me
Sit
Implied Stay
Down
Recall
Place

This class will discuss a variety of different training techniques and tools. Marker (clicker) training will also be taught. Each week, students will be shown training techniques and given homework to complete. They will be invited to upload videos of working sessions with their dogs for instructor review/guidance/tips. 

Week 1:  Students will learn what motivates dogs to work, or in a sense, what their “paycheck” is. Clicker training (marker training) will be taught and the markers will be charge (giving meaning to the marker words.) No two dogs are the same, therefore training techniques may differ. During this week, students will also be working leash pressure, focus drills and food luring into the “sit” position.  

Week 2: This week, students will build on the week prior. Students will be shown how to teach “implied stay” which is significantly different that utilizing a “stay” command. The “down” command will also be taught and used in conjunction with the implied stay.

Week 3: During this week, we will build even further on previously learned commands and markers. Students will learn to train the “place” command as well as the recall (come) command.

Week 4: This week will be used as a review/practice week to brush up on all commands learned and proof with a variety of distractions. The goal is for the dog to build duration!
