Good Dog Out on the Town - $80

Get out in Fort Collins and put your dog’s skills to use! The entire class will be there to give you confidence and I will coach you along the way! During weeks 1 and 2 we work in Fort Collins parks to polish up your dog’s attention to you, leash walking and sit-stay behavior. You and your dog will learn to use down as a default behavior for control and calmness. You will learn how to teach your dog to behave when people want to say “Hi!” and how to support your dog when he sees a 6 foot tall monkey on rollerblades playing a guitar in Old Town! During weeks 3 – 6 we will travel to dog-friendly businesses that sell everything from hardware and gardening supplies to coffee and sandwiches. Depending on the groups skill level, we will have a pizza party on the last night of class.

Dogs over 6 months of age are welcome. The most successful participants will have attended puppy or basic obedience class.

This course is offered through the City of Fort Collins Recreator. Register at www.fcgov.com/recreator Course number 307452-01

CLASS IS FULL! - The Really Reliable Recall and Loose Leash Walking $80

Tuesday June 19, 2018 – Tuesday July 17, 2018 5:30 – 6:30 PM

Teach your dog to COME when called using “The Really Reliable Recall” program which uses positive reinforcement and results in great recalls even with distractions.  Learn to use free shaping and hand targeting to teach your dog to walk calmly on a loose leash on the trails and in town.

During weeks 1 and 2 we will work on leash and on long lines in a wide open space in a park. During weeks 3 -5 we practice leash walking in a neighborhood or in a business area and we practice COME in a fenced area where the dogs can learn to attend to their owners while experiencing more freedom.  This step is critical since many dogs can COME when called in the home but are not so reliable when being called in from the yard or when their leash is inadvertently dropped in public places.

Dogs over 6 months of age are welcome. The most successful participants will have attended puppy or basic obedience class.

This course is offered this SUMMER through the City of Fort Collins Recreator beginning May 10, 2018
