This 4-week long course will teach kids to learn how to safely interact with their dog at home.
In addition, dogs will learn to take directions from them. Dogs will be taught by the child (with the help of an adult) how to sit, lie down and walk on a loose leash. We will also look at some fun games young kids can play with their dog to keep both engaged and safe.

Parkour Level 1
Registration closes Wed. July 31st, 2019. 3 spaces left.
As described by the International Dog Parkour Association (www.dogparkour.org) Dog Parkour is thought of as urban agility. It is a fun activity that teaches dogs to safely and confidently engage with obstacles in the environment. Dogs are taught how to climb, balance, jump among other activities. I would add that Dog Parkour can double as a fantastic and quick way to engage your dog mentally and physically. This class is ideal for dogs that need a “job,” energetic dogs (that are driving their people craa-zy!) as well as dogs that need to learn to enjoy novel things.
In this level ONE course we will work on having dogs learn how to: balance, back up, pivot on two feet and wait on an obstacle.
