Preparing for Class

The Handler    

  • You are responsible for your dog – if your dog has an accident in class, the proper equipment will be available for you to clean up (it happens to most of us).

  • Keep your dog on a short leash when entering or leaving the building and respect the space of other dogs and humans.

  • While one person may be the official trainer, the whole family needs to be consistent and apply the training.  Be prepared to train your family and friends – invite them to class!

 

Clothing              

  • Please bring clean and dry footwear.

  • Wear soft-soled shoes, avoid floppy sandals, noisy shoes or high heels.

  • Avoid dresses or baggy pants, which may interfere with your dog

  • Pockets will be helpful.

 

Your Dog

  • For your dog’s comfort and to help avoid accidents, withhold food for at least 2 hours before class and ensure your dog is well exercised.

  • If your dog cannot come to class because of illness or surgery you can personally attend so as not to miss any instruction.

  • You may wish to bring a stuffed Kong, dog mat, or favorite toy to help your dog settle at the Centre.  

  • Bring a water dish for your dog as the training and treats may increase their thirst.  To prevent potential germ and disease transmission, we do not put out communal water bowls. We can supply water.

 

Equipment 

  •  A six-foot lead is recommended  – something you are comfortable stepping on. Please NO EXTENDIBLE LEASHES.  You will also require a flat collar or a harness.  Please no choke, prong or electronic collars.

 

Training

  • Is fun.  We focus on training that is enjoyable for your dog.

  • We will show you how to work so your dog is a willing, eager learner and a better companion than ever before.

 

Children & Dogs

  •  All dogs can bite – children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
