Summer Training Membership 2019

Play at your own level, on your own schedule, in separately fenced gardens and fields, to music!  Group instruction Monday-Thursday 9 am (mixed ages), 5pm (puppies and “soft”or shy dogs) and 6pm (mixed ages, more rambunctious/athletic dogs). Schedule may change to reflect member interests.

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

Mondays and Tuesdays:  Basic Obedience and Beyond!  Crate/Gate, 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 and Tuesdays 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. Got puppy?   AKC S.T.A.R. puppy class is 5pm Monday and Friday.

Wednesdays: Rally Obedience! “Follow the signs “dog sport develops handling skills and canine responsiveness at all training levels. As this is a foundation to canine musical freestyle, we will offer freestyle games as well as rally run-throughs, side by side in separate training yards, all day long!  Play a little both ways. Are you a competitor? Become a member and drop in for run-throughs!

Thursdays: Agility for all levels. Balance, run, and stretch and build new physical skills alongside your dog! Tunnel, run and jump! Build your relationship on the fly! Morning and 5 pm is more focused on balance and target games for the slower or beginner set. Ready for more? 6 pm Enjoy  agility run throughs on courses currently seen in competition!

Fridays/Sat: Train or play independently according to your training level! Practice on your own, in separately fenced training areas.

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. 207-seven/five/six, 9 four 2 one
