Focus! Distraction Training

Wouldn’t it be nice if your dog knew how to relax as well as they knew how to be wild? Believe it or not, that can be trained. In this class, you will practice your dog’s Down/Stay as well as crucial attention exercises and behaviors that teach impulse control, until focus and relaxation become real and on your cue. Over six weeks, increased distraction levels will help your dog apply relaxation to many environments. A dog that acts calm may actually become calm. Imagine that! This class is structured for dogs ages 8 months and up.
