FUNdamentals classes

Introduction to learning games.  Get better behaviour from your dog.  Grow the bond!!  Have FUN!!

FUNdamentals is an introductory class that focuses on life skills for dogs in a human world.  Grow some calm in your dog, develop self-control, learn to ignore distraction, focus on you, come when called, develop confidence and more.   The class is based on games which takes the pressure off both dog and handler.  The trick of course is to rig the games so that the dog learns to make the choices that we want.  Classes are small (maximum 4 dogs) so you get plenty of individual attention. 

See the information bar for next offerings.
