Learn how to train your dog for dog sports and competition obedience from the comfort of your home online. Online dog training classes give you the information that you need to be successful at teaching your dog the skills necessary to achieve your goals!

Mariah teaches her online classes through Fenzi Dog Sports Academy (FDSA). Classes are 6 weeks in length and registration begins on the 22nd of January, March, May, July, September, and November.

Online dog training classes contain lectures, videos demonstrating the skills, images and access to watch the other students practice the skills and implement the lectures into their training sessions. There are 3 levels of participation for the online classes. All three levels provide access to the skills, images, videos and the opportunity to learn from other students. The gold level provides the ability to interact directly with Mariah and receive feedback on videos that you submit and ask questions. The silver level gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the lectures, videos and discuss various aspects of the class. The bronze level provides read-only access.

Overgreeters Anonymous: People and Dogs

Does your dog love people and other dogs too much? Does your dog leap all over people and embarrass you with their greeting behavior? Does your dog bounce, lunge excitedly or stare at other dogs while on leash? This class focuses on teaching dogs to greet people appropriately and to ignore other dogs and focus on you instead.

Your dog will learn to greet people without jumping on them- on leash, off leash, close up, and at a distance. Yes, even the most exciting visitors will be greeted appropriately. We will teach your dog to make desirable choices with other dogs. That means your dog will learn not to bark, stare, lunge at or get over excited when there are other dogs around.

Registration: September 22- October 15

Control Your Canine: Impulse Control at Home and In Sports

Does your dog try to take food from the countertops when you are out of the room? Does she spot that crumb on the floor a mile away and dive for it? Does he lose his mind if you put a toy or a treat on the floor and ask him to sit? Does your dog grab the toilet paper or your socks and have a party playing catch me if you can? This class covers a lot of impulse control material! We go over lots of impulse control games with food and toys- in the house, on leash and incorporating it into training. We practice impulse control games with things in motion (cars, critters, people, dogs, etc) and beginner down stays. We will teach the dog to ignore you while you are eating and not steal your dinner from the coffee table while you run to the kitchen. Your dog will learn not to put their feet on the counters and not to take food from the counter while you are out of sight.

We will teach the dogs to ignore food and toys on the ground until released to get it. This is useful for daily walks and for many different sports, such as flatwork for agility, drop on recall practice, signals and distraction work! If your dog needs more self-control, this is the class for you!
