Polite Pooches Around Town
This course is for dogs who have already completed a basic obedience training course, such as Polite Pooches, and would like to continue to work on increasing their dog’s skills. It can be difficult to take skills taught in a controlled classroom setting and apply them to everyday situations out and about with your dog. This four week class will take place at the CHS, as well as different locations around South Calgary to allow for different experiences and generalization of skills. This class will build on foundation behaviours covered in our Polite Pooches curriculum, and continue to focus on instructing owners how to teach their canine with “marker-based” training. All student receive a clicker.
Requirements: Dogs must be spayed or neutered, over 6 months of age and must have up-to-date vaccinations. They must have completed a basic obedience class, preferably Polite Pooches. Your dog must be calm and sociable around other dogs; not reactive. Examples of reactive behaviours: raised hackles, barking, lunging, growling, cowering, etc. (If your dog demonstrates these behaviours, skip to reactive dog classes)
