Changing Attitudes

Is your dog easily distracted or anxious, unable to work off leash around other dogs or unable to control impulses when excited?

The Changing Attitudes program is designed for dogs that participate in dog sports and pet dogs that need help developing focus and confidence. You will learn techniques to help your dog relax, to ignore exciting things in the environment and to focus on you. You can learn how to manage stressful situations and strengthen the relationship between you and your dog. This class is not designed for dogs that are fearful of people.

This is a 7 week session and classes are 90 minutes long each week.  The first week is a mandatory lecture for people only.
