We organize our curriculum and training stations schedule and classroom with the help of “Focus Days.” 

August Focus Days: Mondays  Basic Obedience and Beyond!  Learn how to build and reinforce cues, condition emotional states, build the kind of response you want around all crates/Gates/doors, and other distractions.  Toy and other attention getting games pave the way to awesome retrieves, deliveries and work around distractions. Build alternatives to food reinforcement, and learn what comes after “sit!” Have trainers told you what to do, but not how or why?  Mondays are foundations days, where you’ll learn how to build cues and signals in a variety of ways: shaping, luring, capturing, prompting. You’ll develop foundation signals ( RMS, Conditioned encouragement, conditioned discouragement, No Reward Mark, and Release signal) that help you communicate better with your dog, and practice social and learning skills as tested in CGC and APDT C.L.A.S.S. programs. 

Tuesdays 6 pm:  Heeling fun and Rally Obedience! These games will set you up to have the beautiful heeling that wins ribbons in rally and freestyle competitions.  Practice your recall games to build a magnetic force that gets the full attention of your dog. We may also set up for rally runthroughs.

Wednesdays 6pm  Agility games for all levels. Build confidence handling through a changing environment  as your dog learns to balance, run, and follow directions!   Build your relationship on the fly! Ready for more? Run throughs are available most days, just ask!

Thursdays 6 pm: Free! Training Demonstrations! Leave your dog home for this (members may participate, just as Jenny!) Come and watch a night in the life of a dog trainer. See what Jenny is working on and how she approaches the training challenge. Ask questions, and if you are a member, you might have a chance to do a little show and tell yourself! Donations are appreciated.

Sunday Specials. Build community, sing around the campfire, sniff among the flowers, romp. See our members calendar for guest speakers, special events and family activities!  Special needs? Contact Jenny for more information or an appointment. wholedogcamp@gmail.com 207-seven/five/six, 9 four 2 one
