This class will teach skills such as circling forward and backward, weaving, backing up straight, heeling, and pivoting, in a way that will get almost instant success for you and your dog.

We’ll also work on turning cute behaviors your dog already does into tricks. By the end of the class you will combine the skills you’ve learned to put together a short routine. This is a class that fosters relationship building, fine-tuned skills that are applicable to real life, and most of all, one more way to have fun with and learn with your dog!

Total Recalltest

This 3-week (only 3 classes, so coming to all three is very important!!!) workshop will focus on two main behaviors: wait and come. We will explore why our dogs don’t come when called, how to change their behavior from “Maybe I will, maybe I won’t,” to “I cannot wait until you call me so I can come running!” We will explore strategies to change our relationship and our behavior to ensure this is our dog’s favorite trick, and discuss some common mistakes we all make that cause our dogs to not come when called.
