ARE YOU AND YOUR DOG READY FOR CLASS?
Read the list below carefully and check it twice to maximize your results from class.
WHAT TO BRING
- A healthy dog. Dogs over 4 months old must have proof of current DA2PV, Rabies, Influenza, and Kennel Cough vaccinations.
- A hungry dog. You’ll get much better results in class if your dog is food-motivated, so forego any meals for the half-day before class.
- An empty dog, and some poop bags. Classes start right on time, so please plan to arrive 10 minutes before class so your puppy or dog has time to relieve herself before coming into class—and come armed with plastic bags for clean up.
- A dog with the right level of energy. Avoid playing too much with your young puppy in the hours before class—she’ll be too tuckered out to learn. But do just the opposite with your adolescent or young adult dog—exercise before class will help create a calm dog who is ready to focus.
- Treats! Bring lots (at least two cups) of tasty treats chopped into small pieces (think M&M or Skittle sized). Nothing dry and boring—go for things like hot dogs, chicken, string cheese, etc. You’ll be glad you did when it’s time to compete for your dog’s attention in a room full of other dogs.
- Proper leash and collar. Your dog must be wearing a flat buckle collar or Gentle Leader head harness, attached to a 6 foot nylon, canvas, or leather leash. No choke, pinch, or shock collars and no chain leashes or flexi-leads allowed in class.
