The first session of this six-week series will be held online. The remaining five classes will be held in-person at HSSV. Attendance at the Week 1 orientation is mandatory. If you miss this first session, you may not be allowed to attend the rest of the course. In addition to talking about how dogs learn and addressing common behavior challenges, we will go over the training methods and equipment that you will need for our onsite sessions, and the class protocols for the rest of the course. Please note that no make-up sessions will be offered.
This course will be in 2 easy parts:
- Week 1 (orientation) will be a Zoom video conference. You will not need to use your dog for this portion, but you’ll be able to ask questions and get to know your instructor.
- Weeks 2 through 6 will be held in-person at HSSV.
Conditions permitting, this class is scheduled to be online for the first week, then onsite for the remaining 5 weeks. If, for whatever reason, it is not possible to meet onsite during a designated onsite week, the class will again meet online that week.
This class is designed for dogs 5 months or older. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun learning environment that will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to successfully work with your dog!
This class is not for dogs who are reactive towards other dogs or people, or who bark/lunge at other dogs. If your dog does exhibit these behaviors, please check out our Top Dogs Level 1 class or contact email@example.com for our referral list!
