Class Offerings in Jeffersontown:

 

Introduction - Drop In

Saturdays @ 11:00 AM

The introduction to training course is required to all new Drop-In students.
Please do not bring your dog, or leave your dog in the car for this 30 minute session.

In this course we will cover dog communication, dog psychology foundations, how to change behavior and the training system we will use to change behavior. There are human skills to learn that will make you a better communicator with your dog. We want to set our human and dog students up for success by teaching you a few things first.

In this session we also discuss successful management, equipment and any questions you might have.

Manners - Drop In

Saturdays @ 12:00 PM 

The introduction/drop in is required before you take this class for the first time. This class is for dogs 18 weeks and older who need work on manners or need a basic class. As a drop in class you can either take the course as you need to, or just come to learn exercises that will help you and your dog live a better life together.

We’re looking forward to making this a certificate/graduation program in 2021.

Topics include: 

  • Sit

  • Down

  • Come When Called

  • Leash Walking

  • Distractions / Leave It 

  • Jumping Prevention

  • Stay/Place 

 

 

Puppy Socialization - Drop In

Sundays @ 3:30 PM

This class is for puppies under 17 weeks. Puppy Socialization is so important! In this session we give students the opportunity to socialize puppies with other puppies of the same age. We cover topics such as puppy nipping, potty training, nail trims, grooming, jumping prevention, come when called and leash walking and more! We believe the best thing about raising your own puppy is creating the foundation to a lifelong friendship together, but we know how rough that first year can be. Think of this as your puppy owner’s support group!

Your puppy’s critical socialization period closes at 16 weeks, so don’t hesitate to get started. 

 

Fun & Games - Drop In 

Saturdays @ 2:00 PM

Many pet owners have dreams of teaching amazing tricks, or need a little help with getting fido to bring the ball back. This session is open to students working on competition behaviors, agility foundations, tricks or if there’s something else, just let us know. 

 

Nose Work Games - Drop In 

Sundays @ 1:30 PM

What is Nose Work? According to Wikipedia "

Nosework is a dog sport sport created to mimic professional detection dog tasks. One dog and one handler form a team. The dogs must find a hidden target odor, often ignoring distractors (such as food or toys), and alert the handler. After the dog finds the odor they are rewarded with food or a toy.”  Nosework is a fantastic way to learn together and build trust in a partnership with your dog. 

 

First we teach our dogs what a search is, then progress to problem solving and then we move on to finding a target odor.  Nose Work can be a fun way to give your dog a job, get them thinking and help them learn to build confidence and focus on one task at a time. Sensitive dogs thrive, and confident dogs learn to slow down and solve the puzzles. 

 

This class is “Seminar Style” meaning dogs need to be crated or left in your vehicle while other dog-handler teams have their turns.

Dogs need to be confident eating or engaging with a toy in public to enjoy this class. If you’re not there yet, contact us today.
