Playtime is Learning time
So many obedience programs focus on what the dog is doing wrong — never really capturing what the dog is doing right. This puts the dog and owner in a constant state of worry. I use a rich variety of fun GAMES and ACTIVITIES to get the desired results. Your dog is actually excited about learning and looks forward to impressing you. It is a real “game changer” for both the dog and the owner! With a game-centered style of training, we take our dogs from worriers to happy, optimistic tail-waggers.
- Number of Classes: 4 weekly classes (class meets on the same day/time each week)
- Length of Class: 1 hour
- Handouts: At the start of class you will receive a handout that will help you log the skills, training and games you cover each week
- Prerequisite: Dogs must be at least 12 weeks of age.
My clients (the dog owners) are over-the-moon excited about using games to train their dogs. Training becomes playtime with their pooches, not work. After all, who doesn’t like to play with their dog? As one client put it, “I was amazed at how much easier this was for me to train my dog than having to learn a bunch of commands or hand signals.”
Classes are held at Four Paws, Lombard’s premier doggy day care, boarding and training facility located at 104 E. St. Charles Road — right across from the downtown Metra Station.
