Location: This class will be held in varying locations in Catonsville. Students will be contacted as to the exact location prior to each class session. 

• Proof of rabies vaccination
• No overt aggressive behaviors towards other people or dogs- poor leash skills ok but handler must be able to maintain physical control
• Known motivators for your dog- if your dog prefers toys over food, please bring a toy! If you’re not sure, ask us prior to coming to your first class!

Comprehensive topics include:

  • Engagement

  • Stress mitigation

  • Socialization

  • Neutralization

  • Emotional Conditioning

This class will prepare you and your dog for higher levels of learning, competition, and work, simply by creating better relationship and language skills! Come to this class with your own goals and we will help you work towards them. Because this class also focuses on socialization and environmental neutralization, you may opt to prepare to take one of the 3 AKC Canine Good Citizen tests!
