Family Dog II

Having graduated the Family Dog I course, your dog now has a solid set of foundation skills to aid them in being a good family canine companion. Now it is time for us to finess those skills!

Course Details

Keeping our training fun, engaging and easy-to -understand for our dog, we will begin to weave in more normal routines to cement their skills. This may include:

  • Ensuring the dog always sits before they get what they want
  • Learning to wait patiently as their people do "human stuff" such as pay a bill at the store, etc.
  • Wait patiently in the car until they are released to exit
  • Illustrate good impulse control when it comes to dropped food or toys
  • Stay with more concentrated distractions and increased distance
  • Continue to perfect their on-leash walking skills
  • and much more!

We'll also continue to give you additional skills from other management tools, how you can tap into play to get the results you want and common pitfalls to avoid.
