GROUP DOG TRAINING CLASSES


Our first group classes start January 2018. The first class is the Dog Training 101 Foundation's class (no dogs) and it will be held at the Animal Friends of the Valleys Animal Shelter in Wildomar. Attendance at one of the Dog Training 101 Foundation classes is required to register for the hands-on training in Murrieta. Sign-ups for the LEVEL 1 - CONTROL AND COOPERATION group class will take place at the Dog Training 101 Foundation's Class

The hands-on group class (with dogs) Level 1 Control And Cooperation will start Saturday, February 10, 2018 in Murrieta. Classes will be 2-hours long each Saturday from 9am-11am for 6-weeks. Aggressive dogs will not be permitted in this class.

Homeskooling 4 Dogs classes are for those who are seriously committed to learning how to lead, care and connect with their dog to achieve control & cooperation, not submission. No type of electronic collars, prong or pinch collars of any type, nor any type of chain collars will be used or permitted. (They are not necessary to train a dog to a high standard) The training is based on a system of rewards and positive reinforcement. You will not be wearing a treat pouch, nor using a clicker. When training dogs, it is important that you act like a leader, not an adversary, or a food dispenser. Our training is not a class on inflicting punishment, nor do our classes look like most participants have a feeding disorder. Our classes are designed to be fun, and educational. All training is designed to give you greater control and understanding of your dog.

Dogs that have attacked another dog or human, or do not permit the owners to handle, groom, or check their teeth are not ready to participate in a group class. We offer private evaluations, consultations and training for these dogs.
