C.L.A.S.S. BA Prep

The Canine Life and Social Skills Program, otherwise known as C.L.A.S.S., was designed to promote better dog training, handling and care, while also highlight more real-life scenarios for dogs to be introduced to and trained for.

Course Details

In this 6-week course, we will be building upon the skills you and your dog currently have to get you both ready to tackle, and pass, the C.L.A.S.S. BA test.

Your dog will be expected to go through 9 different test items, with several opportunities for bonus tricks and other behaviors. These test items include such behaviors as waiting patiently at the door, coming when called, leashing up calmly, waiting for the food bowl, being able to settle, giving and taking an item and much more. All of these behaviors are the same ones you will likely need when you are living with your dog day-to-day!

Using fun and engaging training exercises, we will help you and your dog master these skills in a series of contexts so it will be easy to do them on test day!
