We are pleased to announce the newest in our lineup of classes at K9 Connection. The Creative Canine Tricks Class is a fun, active, and engaging class that uses playful and entertaining tricks to develop healthy relationships and improved communication between dogs and their humans. The class runs once a week on Tuesdays at 6:00pm for 8 weeks. Each class will be progressive and will build on previously taught skills, leading to more advanced and complex tricks.
In addition to teaching your dog tricks that will impress your friends and family, attending this class will:
Create a stronger bond between you and your dog
Teach dogs to enjoy learning
Teach dogs to look to their humans for guidance and respond to subtle cues
Teach dogs to be more environmentally stable
Teach humans to have more clear and effective communication skills with their dogs
Teach you and your dog how to achieve complex tasks and completing and building upon incremental steps.
The Creative Canine can also be a great class for puppies to begin with as it will teach them from a young age to love training, and will help achieve a healthy and respectful relationship through disciplined and structured play.
This class will rely heavily on food motivation for training, and no physical corrections will be used. This is not an appropriate class for solving behavior problems, but rather it is designed for those looking for a fun and challenging alternative to the traditional obedience class.
Dogs must be able to sit and stay for at least a couple minutes at a time
Dogs must know a basic place command
Dogs must be capable of being in close proximity to other dogs and people without displaying aggression
This specialty class is not included as part of our traditional group class membership, and will require separate enrollment.
The 8 week course is $199.
Upcoming class start date: Tuesday April 4th 2017 at 6:00pm
