Dog Obedience & Behavior Conditioning
Start: Saturday, April 6, 2013
La Habra , CA 90631
Is Spot always in the dog house? If so, get him out and trained so that he can become a happier member of your pack! This eight-week session is open to all breeds of dogs, ages six months and older (larger breeds accepted at four months). Class activities will include basic obedience: heel, sit, stay, down-stay, come when called, stand for vet visits, wait command for door dashing, leave it command and walking on a loose leash without pulling. In addition, behavioral problems such as digging, excessing barking, nipping and jumping on people will be covered. Encouragement of nervous and sensitive dogs also will be addressed. Ms. Schmidt has worked as a dog trainer for 18 years, as well as working as an exotic animal trainer at Knott's Berry Farm, where she learned much about canine behavior and animal communication from working with Timber Wolves. Her philosophy is "a thinking dog is a better-behaved and happier member of the family". The first meeting will be an orientation held without dogs at the Community Center.
