Foundation Class

 This 5 week course is for puppies or the beginner handler just getting started. Learn the training skills to be successful in future Agility, Therapy Dog, Obedience and Rally classes. Works on Dog Focus, Impulse Control, Confidence and Body Awareness. If in an environment with distractions, you have to pull or yank on your dog's leash and repeatedly call your dog's name to get his attention; this class is for you. You will learn the proper technique to best train your dog.
