Service Description

This group class is taught by BFDA Independent Contractor, Darlene Olshansky. Class meets 4 consecutive weeks on Sundays at 2 PM April 2, 9, 16, 23 In this class we introduce you and your dog to training together with positive reinforcement. The skills we may teach and or use in class may include sit, down, come-when-called, stay/release, and introductory level targeting. We will emphasize the core foundation of attention and focus on the handler. Our goal is for you to leave this class knowing how to teach your dog “all the things” and how have fun doing it. We keep our class sizes small to create the optimum learning environment for both you and your dog. This class is appropriate for dogs over 6 months old. Dogs must be comfortable working on leash in proximity to other dogs. This is not a class for reactive dogs. WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS: • Water, water bowl and poop bags • High value treats and treat pouch. You will need both hands free in this class. • 6’(max length) leash • Flat collar, Gentle Leader, Halti or harness (no shock, choke or prong collars allowed) Your spot in a class is confirmed after receipt of payment, class form (and vaccination records at least 24 hours before class). Form can be found on our website (under REGISTRATION/Forms). Please send a signed copy of the form, along with your dog's vaccination records, via email to or via U.S. mail. Failure to provide vaccine records at last 24 hours before class may result in the loss of your spot in class without refund. The vaccine requirement is a State Law and we take it seriously to protect all dogs. Thank you.
