This class is designed to teach perfect crate manners, good recall skills, self-control, body awareness, clicker work, and self-confidence to young puppies and older beginners with little training. The first four weeks of class will cover our "Crate Games" series developed from Susan Garrett.
Each handler will be required to bring a wire or airline crate (hard-sided only) to class each week. The crate MUST be large enough for the dog to enter in and to sit upright WITHOUT HITTING HIS/HER HEAD OR EARS.

The last four weeks of the class will provide foundation clicker training, rear-end awareness, swish poles, backing up and downs, tug games, spins and twirls and other foundation games that can be used for competition obedience, as independent games, and as a way to help burn off some of your dog's pent up energy. Learn how to interact with your puppy in a fun way that helps him/her use their brains in a positive way.
