PawsDog Solutions Dog Training Classes-Start Every 5Weeks

Posted on October 24 2016

ABOUT PAWS DOGS SOLUTIONS:

At Paws Dog Solutions, we are committed to teaching our clients how to effectively use fun and force-free training methods. Clicker training is about reinforcing the behavior you want to see in your dog, rather than “correcting” the behavior you don’t want to see. A clicker, a small box that makes a “click” sound when the button is pushed, tells dogs what they have done right. Each click is followed with reinforcement: a toy, treat, or something else the dog likes. Dogs do what works for them, so behaviours that are marked and reinforced are repeated. Through this method, we will teach dogs the behaviours we want them to learn. Students will also learn how to manage their dogs to deal with undesirable behaviours like jumping up, barking and puppy biting.

We strive to provide each owner with the knowledge and skills they need to teach their dog to be the best companion for their family.

 

 

CLASS INFORMATION:

Level One - Basic Life Skills

Level One is for Puppy Socialization graduates and adult or adolescent dogs that are new to training. The focus of beginner training is to learn everyday basic life skill exercises like sit, down, stay, come, pay attention, walk nicely on leash, leave it and polite greetings. We will also address problem solving and elimination of undesirable behaviours like jumping up and barking. Dogs will learn to focus on their families even in the face of distractions!  

 

Prerequisites: for dogs 17 weeks of age and older; all dogs must be up to date on vaccinations
Cost: $109.50 + GST ($115.00) | 5 weeks
Class Schedule

Level Two - Advanced Life Skills

Level Two class will continue to work on the skills introduced in Level One. We will work to increase reliability of trained behaviours and learn how to eliminate the clicker once behaviours have been successfully trained. We will work through components of the Canine Good Neighbour program where dogs will learn to greet people and dogs appropriately, walk on a loose leash amidst increasing levels of distraction, and deal with life even in the presence of other dogs. We will also try some rally obedience and learn some new behaviours and tricks!

 

Prerequisites: Level One - Basic Life Skills
Cost: $109.50 + GST ($115.00) | 5 weeks

Level Three - Focus Games

The  goal of this advanced level class is to work towards having a dog that will respond anywhere, at any time, under any circumstances! We will be working hard to improve your dog’s reliability of performance, focus, self-control, and good decision making. We will do this through a series of games designed to improve your dog’s focus, recall, loose leash walking, stay, and more! The Games class is ideal for those intending to train or compete in dog sports like agility, rally obedience, disc or flyball. It is also a great class for pet owners looking for an extra challenge and fun with their dogs!

Find It! Canine Nose Work

The nose always knows so put it to work!

 

In Find It! class, you will put your dog’s natural scenting abilities to work. Nosework is a great way for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy.

 

Find It! – Foundation

The foundation level will provide an introduction to odour for dogs and handlers. We will focus on proper handling of odour and equipment, leash handing, reinforcement and learning how to read your dog's alert signals.

 

With two instructors present, we will run two full search areas each week so dogs get twice the time "on course" in each class.

 

We will follow the rules of The Sporting Detection Dogs Association and Wintergreen (Gaultharia procumbens) will be our target odour.  A take-home scent kit will be provided to each participant.   

 

Prerequisite: None
Cost: $114.25 + GST ($120.00) | 6 weeks
Class Schedule - daytime classes only
