Distraction Class

Prerequisite: Intermediate class and/or CGC title

6 weeks * Class sessions: one hour * Class Fee: $150 (for entire course)

This class is designed for anyone that wants to improve their dog’s focus on you and the job, no matter what the distraction. The class is for anyone that is getting ready to or already competing in off-leash dog sports and wants a dog that can work through any distraction and stay focused on the task at hand. Dogs in this class should show no aggression to other dogs or people, must already have a solid 30 second sit stay and 30 second down stay and preferably a stand stay. Dogs should be able to walk on a loose leash. We will build on behaviors learned in both beginners and intermediate classes and add some additional behaviors as well. We will build to off-leash work in the class. The class will be adjusted to fit the needs of class participants and the goals they have for their dogs.
