Embark on the next level of obedience mastery with our Advanced Obedience Class, where we fine-tune skills for real-world reliability and prepare for the challenges of therapy dog work. Through structured training, we'll guide you and your canine companion to surpass expectations with the removal of treats, ensuring obedience even without immediate rewards. Our sessions emphasize focus in group settings, cultivating your dog's ability to maintain attention amidst distractions. From mastering the perfect heel to practicing a reliable 'leave it' command, we'll equip you with the tools for success in any environment. While preparation for therapy dog/buddy's pals/cgc testing is offered, participation is optional, allowing you to explore this rewarding path at your own pace. Join us as we elevate obedience to an art form and forge an unbreakable bond of trust and reliability between you and your beloved dog!

THIS CLASS IS OPEN ONLY TO KAREN'S PREVIOUS CONTROL UNLEASHED STUDENTS

This 10 week class will examine the function of growling, lunging, or fleeing behaviors and help the dogs learn socially acceptable behaviors that serve the same function. CU and BAT build confidence by teaching dogs how to control their environment with little interference from us. CU and BAT will empower you and your dog as you learn how to understand your dog while your dog learns to safely interact with people and other dogs. You will learn:

  • How to encourage or shape a "replacement behavior" that provides your dog with the same function as the unwanted behavior.
  • Why it's important to keep your dog calm in the presence of a trigger while teaching him to make good choices.
  • Practical ways to keep your dog from being pushed into a reactive state in and around your home and on walks.

Please bring your dog to class on a soft buckle collar or front clip harness, a six foot leather or nylon leash. No retractable or chain leashes allowed. No prong/pinch collars allowed. Bring 2-3 quart bags of soft, small, easily eaten treats such as hot dogs, cheese or chicken. Bring an inexpensive, portable mat. 

  • You will need a 15 – 20 ft. long line and a front attached harness for the later portion of the class.  Both long lines and harnesses can be purchased at AnnaBelle’s. Training clients receive 15% discount off all leashes.
  • Required reading for this class can be purchased at AnnaBelle’s. 
  • Class size limited to 4 dogs per class.

      Clicker training is a science-based method of dog training that uses positive reinforcement to teach dogs new behaviors. It's a fun and effective way to train your dog, and it can be used to teach a wide variety of behaviors, from basic obedience commands to more complex tricks.

      Free shaping is a dog training technique that involves rewarding successive approximations of a desired behavior. This means that you click and treat your dog for getting closer and closer to the behavior you want, until they eventually perform the behavior perfectly.

      If you're looking for a positive and effective way to train your dog, then Doggie Do Good Beginner Obedience-Clicker Style is a great option for you.
