Small class sizes in easy to manage steps
Service Dog Classes meet once a week for 1 1/2 to 2 hour classes. Class size ranges from 6-10 students.
We believe that it takes learned skills on the part of both the dog and the human to make true long term progress in training. We teach our students the skills that will help them continue to successfully train their dog.
Positive Motivational Learning Techniques
We use positive motivational techniques in all our teaching, for both people and canines. We reward success and concentrate on what talent each person and dog have and we build on those strengths. Building a team relationship, a partnership with your dog, is crucial to reap the many benefits of the human/canine bond. The dog helps their person when times get tough because they love and trust them, and the person gets their dog through different difficult situations that come up in life because they love and trust their dog.
Working during the week
There is much to learn during the time away from class. Students will be given homework to work on throughout the week.
It is Fun!!
Training is fun; we engage the dogs in play as we teach them to learn new things. As the dog has fun, so does the person, it is hard to not be cheered up while watching dogs offer new behaviors to their person.
