Basic Life Skills will address how to manage undesired dog behaviors, teach focus, impulse control, sit, down, stay, meet and greet, and my person favorite boundaries. These skills will be taught using “Least Invasive Minimally Adverse” methods (LIMA). An orientation package will be sent to each team prior to the first class so they will know what to bring, what to expect, what is not allowed, and most importantly safety protocol.
The person handling the dog must be 18 years or older and must submit proof of all vaccinations of their dog. No more than 1 handler should be present at each class session, due to the Governor's limit on social gatherings . We will have a staff member present for check in and a brief COVID-19 screening that includes a few questions and a temperature reading.
These classes are capped at 6 spots, so be sure to register quick!
