Venue: DZ Middle School Commons area on Renninger Drive | City: Juneau
This class is a six week course for dogs over 6 months of age and is limited to 8 dogs. It’s main design is for the family dog. It is totally on leash. The class will focus on behaviors owners want most, such as coming when called, polite greetings, walking on a loose leash and other basic commands.
We assume your dog has no training from the start, so the emphasis is on the basic commands. Another focus throughout the class is getting your dog to learn to ignore other dogs while on leash. We also work on exercises that will help you and your dog be better prepared when you are out and about on the trails. It’s also a good refresher class if you are interested in moving on to formal obedience, rally obedience, agility, or other dog sports.
Any dog that bites, growls, lunges, or exhibits any behavior that the instructor feels creates an unsafe situation toward other dogs or humans will be excused from class.
