Force Free Training to Create Better Focus and Confidence; based on tools Judy has gathered from many great trainers such as Leslie McDevitt, Ken Ramirez, Suzanne Clothier, and Sophia Yin just to name a few!
This class is designed to increase your dogs focus on you even with many distractions nearby. Behaviors are conditioned so you can Drop the Leash reliably in stimulating situations and you dog stays near you. Building upon basic manners, class exercises will teach your dog to check in more often, think rather than react and learn to settle after being aroused.
You will learn to read your dogs body language better so you can set your dog up for success. Many adolescence dogs lack emotional control, unfortunately many people want to punish or correct this behavior which only makes the dogs more aroused and stressed. Helping your dog learn that he is safe in different environments will build his confidence, reduce his fears and his stressed out behaviors.
“Judy, Bo is doing great! This is 15 minutes after introducing this lab into our home for an overnight. Thank you so much for all your help. Not only did I enjoy the training classes, but I learned so many valuable things about reading dogs body language and setting them up for success.
See you soon when I sign up for my next round of classes Thanks again!”
