This class is designed to help owners of dogs who bark, growl, lunge and jump around on leash when they catch sight of another dog.
We believe that the training you receive in this class will not only improve your dog’s behavior, it can also be inherently enjoyable and stimulating to your dog, and provide you both with rewarding experiences together.
Taught several times a year, this accelerated four-week course of 90-minute sessions is limited to four handler-dog teams. This class is not suitable for dogs who show fear in the presence of strangers. For everyone’s safety, dogs must wear a Snoot Loop head halter and muzzle when doing exercises on the floor. Dogs also wear a front-attach ring harness. Handlers use a leash with clips at both ends. To develop solid handling skills, students are urged to practice assigned exercises spelled out on a weekly homework sheet.

How to Prepare Your Dog for Class
Come When Called Dog Training follows the policy set by Your Dog’s Friend.
Your Dog’s Friend will return your check by mail or offer credit toward another class. If after the first session of a class a dog is unable to attend due to an injury or illness, you can receive a 50% credit toward a future class. I regret that no credit or refund can be provided for any reason after the first session of a class. There is a $15 fee for all returned checks.
Attendance is vitally important for this accelerated class. Handling skills are demonstrated and practiced in class so that you are able to perform them correctly at home.
