Give your dog a mental workout in gym class. This is a drop in class, held twice a week as an add on for our basic obedience and puppy courses, and as continuing education for graduates. This class has a loose training format so we can customize each days curriculum to the dogs in class that day. We will work on tricks, fitness exercises, polishing and proofing basic obedience exercises, advancing basic obedience exercises to a more challenging format, problem solving, and socializing for puppies.
Class is held at Kitty’s Canine Clips on Mondays, from 8:00 – 9:00 pm and on Thursdays from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Heeling Class is held outdoors, and focuses on advancing your heeling and outdoor obedience skills no matter what level your dog is working. This class can accommodate students still perfecting on leash obedience skills, and students working on their off-leash obedience. While we will focus on heeling, you can expect to practice position changes, stays and recalls in this session as well. Open to graduates of any LFL adult dog training program. Held at Cozy Canine Camp on Saturdays from 10:00 – 11:00 am
