Terrier Tactics

Let’s get it right from the get-go….TERRIERS ARE AWESOME! If you love terriers, you already know that they are fabulous, fierce, and sometimes fiendish! This class will enhance your life and your dog’s by providing a means of effective relationship building and learning how to better communicate. Humans and canines can co-exist because both species have worked to find a common ground for living, playing, and learning together. Terriers add some challenges when it comes to canine-human interactions because they are confident that they should be the bosses. Learn training tactics well-founded on how terriers think and learn. The class size is small; only 5 dogs, to ensure a great time for dogs and people. All terrier breeds and mixed terriers are welcome. NOT APPROPRIATE FOR REACTIVE-DOG AGGRESSIVE terriers.

New! Building Resiliency

              Resilience is the process of adapting successfully in the face of change, unknown people or circumstances, adversity, trauma, tragedy, or other significant sources of stress.

              If your dog struggles with how to handle life’s realities this new class is for you and your dog. We identify the root sources of your dogs’ responses to stress inducing experiences. We teach you and your dog how to negotiate the circumstances. NOT for dogs with reactive behavior when seeing or greeting other dogs. This is for dogs who are fearful of people, sounds, objects, unusual circumstances. This is a good fit for dogs with separation anxiety as well as those who are worried about sounds and objects. If you are not sure if this is the best choice, please call us to discuss your dog’s specific needs. - $325
