TEEN LEASH & GREET CLASS – designed for social dogs 6 months and older & friendly with other dogs while on leash
My Pack Leash Walk and dog training class combined! Walk with other handlers and social dogs in “The Pack.” A Pack Walk provides excellent physical and mental exercise for your dog as well as healthy interaction with other social dogs. This is an ALL outside walking and training class at Central Park in Doylestown. Learn new exercises to improve your dog’s leash walking skills as we power walk through the park. This class is a great option for the active teenage dog! Or, if your dog is excitable around other dogs, needs exercise, constantly stops on their walks or simply enjoys walking. We teach them to walk (and stay!) on one side of you, walk in a straight line, walk at a steady pace and walk with their head up in the air (rather than trying to eat everything off the ground!). We will also practice appropriate meet and greet skills with new people and dogs. This class is taught twice every Fall and Spring.
THERAPY TEAM PREP CLASS – designed for mature social dogs with previous professional training
This class is designed for handler and dog teams interested in pursuing therapy dog work. The AKC Canine Good Citizen® Program (CGC) is designed to recognize handlers with dogs that are well trained and well behaved members of their home and community, in the presence of other dogs and distractions. Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. (B&BTD) is a non-profit organization that evaluates and certifies handlers and dogs as therapy dog teams. A dog must naturally possess characteristics for therapy dog work and have (dog and handler) reliable training skills. This class prepares appropriate teams for CGC or B&BTD testing on the final week of class with an approved evaluator. This class is taught once or twice every Fall, Winter and Spring.
