Fantastic Focus & Recall *Outdoor Class* (4 weeks) – $120          REGISTER NOW!

Focus – the mother of all training.  Without it, we have nothing.  Learn how to build a solid foundation and teach your dog this almighty skill.  Recall (COME!) or the art of having your dog return to you on cue is arguably one of the most important skills your dog will learn.  This class is designed for dogs that have poor recall skills, need to learn recall skills, or want to improve recall skills while having FUN and building a BOND with their guardian.

Reactive Dog (5 weeks) – $140          REGISTER NOW!

It is common for dogs to react poorly when they see other dogs on leash while out for a walk.  This reaction may look like excessive vocalizations in the form of yelping, barking or growling, as well as pulling, lunging or rearing up on leash.  Some dogs may also growl, snarl and bare their teeth.  This class is designed for dogs who have what is known as leash reactivity.  Class size is SMALL and is set up in such a way to gradually expose the dogs to one another while learning necessary skills to reduce and manage their reactivity.  *The first class is people only, NO DOGS, to go over important behavior information and class structure.

Requirements: Dogs must be 5 months or older and be up to date with vaccines (titer tests will be accepted).

Dates: TBA

Location: Mission Hill Pet Planet, 398 St. Albert Trail, St. Albert
