HumaneK9 Dog Training
Many of us have compliant dogs in and around our homes but what happens when we go somewhere else? Does your training breakdown? Does your dog stop paying attention to you?
This exciting new program is for dog owners who want to have FUN with their dog while learning, proofing and reinforcing obedience cues and behaviors out in the community aka The Real World.
This program will help you work in a positive way with your dog while having success being out in public / community places. This is a great time to get your dog used to people wearing masks and social distancing. Additionally, this program will help you gain the skills necessary to further pursue Therapy Dog Certification as well as obtain your AKC Canine Good Citizen Advanced (CGCA) and Urban Canine Good Citizens (CGCU) titles.
Locations vary throughout the 4 weeks.
We will work on:
- Attention and Focus Exercises
