Impulse Control!

Time: 8:15 – 9:15 pm

Dates: Friday, March 30- May 11. No class on April 13th.

Is your dog dragging you on the leash down the street or when you are at exciting locations? Are you worried that your dog is going to get hit by a car because she bolts out the door or because he doesn’t come when called?

You love your dog, but she can be difficult to live with: ignoring you, lunging and pulling towards other people and dogs, barking when she wants something, sitting on cue only when you have a reward in your hand and pulling on leash. Wouldn’t it be nice to walk around the block on a loose leash, if he greeted visitors politely and came when you called?

In this group dog training class, your dog will learn to come when called, walk nicely on a leash, greet people politely, stay instead of bolting through doors, sit and lie down on a verbal cue, and impulse control with food. Don’t wait until your dog ignores you when you call him to come in a life threatening situation. Sign up today!
