Service Description

This 4- week class is taught by Darlene Olshansky, professional dog trainer and Independent contractor for BFDA. Class meets Sundays at 12:30 PM on April 2, 9, 16, 23. In this class you will learn basic training principles and how to apply them to teach your adolescent puppy to be well mannered. We cover important behaviors such as attention to handler, loose leash walking, recall, and other important skills needed to help develop good manners. You will learn how to be a proactive pet parent to avoid and/or manage unwanted behaviors. Games, socialization, exploration, and working on cooperative care (handling for husbandry, vet/groomer visits) will be covered. Proper and effective socialization will be addressed without off leash free for all. WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS: - Water, water bowl, poop bags - A variety of soft small, soft treats that your puppy really likes - A treat pouch for handler - 6 foot (maximum) leash – no flexi leashes please - Flat collar or harness (NO shock, prong, or choke collars allowed) Vaccine records (parvo/distemper/rabies) are required and must be received at BFDA via USPO or email at least 24 hours before class. Failure to meet this requirement will result in loss of your place in class without refund. We take vaccine requirements (mandated by the State of Iowa) seriously for the health of all dogs. Thank you!
