This class is for dogs who have the basics of dog obedience under control when at home, but are easily distracted when out in the world. It’s all about teaching our dogs to respond to us even when they’re distracted, and how you as a handler should cope with distracting situations.

This class is based on the book “Beyond the Backyard: Train Your Dog to Listen Anytime, Anywhere!” by Denise Fenzi. You don’t need the book to take the course, however, it’s an excellent book and I will have it for sale in the class.

You don’t have to have taken any classes with me before, however your dog must meet the following criteria:
– Are friendly with both other dogs and people
– Can wait quietly in a crate next to their person
– Can reliably perform basic obedience skills – sit, down, stay, come when called, loose leash walking- in an environment with no distractions such as at home.

Class runs for 6 weeks and costs $160 (no class May Long Weekend)
