Puppy Play to Learn -Mondays @ 1:00 p.m.

This is a daytime class that takes place at the Regina Humane Society Training Building on Victoria Ave.

For puppies under five months of age. Our Puppy Play to Learn class is tailored for the young puppy mind. Bridging socialization exercises and teamwork exercises with more traditional curriculum like sit, down, stay, leave-it, come, baby leash manners and every day handling, this class begins a lifetime of connection and good manners work -all through playing games.

 

 

 

Foundation Fun 101 -Mondays @ 2:00 p.m.

For beginners four months of age and older. Encourage focus and partnership by playing. Learn sit, down, come, stay, loose leash walking and more with games-based training. Play your way to a well-trained dog.

For this class you will need to bring a mat or station for your dog.

 

Intro to Stunt Dog -Mondays @ 6:00 p.m.

What is Stunt Dog you ask? Stunt dog is a companion program to tricks, where we teach you how to put personalized tricks into a choreographed, staged performance at an easy novice level. Whether you have aspirations of being a performer on stage, or would just like to light up your living-room, if your dog has 10 or more tricks and enjoys working in a classroom, you’re ready to take this class.

Rally-O Skill Building -Mondays @ 7:00 p.m.

Have you started some Rally-O training? Know some of the signs? Come join us for Rally-O Skill Building, where we’ll continue learning more signs, heeling, focus and start working on smaller courses. Whether you are keen on working towards your first competition, or simply like to continue your manners training through fun Rally-O Games, this class is a good fit.

Beginners with a fair amount of manners under their belt, are welcome to join us as well.

Focus and Control -Wednesdays @ 6:00 p.m.

Is your dog too friendly for his own good? Kind of (happily) out of control? Hard to manage? Seems to have bricks in his ears? Maybe he knows some skills, but can’t seem to show those good behaviors out in public? Are you kind of embarrassed about his behavior?

If you have a dog that’s difficult to control, but isn’t generally leash reactive (barking, snarling, growling at others) -this class is for you! This class is all the good things of our Leash Reactivity class -shifted to owners with dogs that aren’t quite Leash Reactive, but need to learn to control their big, wild feelings too.

Why? Growing skills like sit, down, stay and come aren’t going to be enough if your dog is out to lunch -you both need to learn focus and control. Without those two things, the rest of your communication gets lost out in the world. Some teams just need more focus and control than others and if typical training hasn’t got the manners you need -you need a new approach!

So, let’s get you working, learning and listening to one another. Come join us this session for our new Behavior class offering: FOCUS AND CONTROL!

Leash Reactivity -Wednesdays @ 8:00 p.m.

Our first class is information only, to get you a step ahead of your dog.

Important details: Please note Leash Reactivity is not designed as a socialization class. We will not be working on greeting, meeting or playing with other dogs. We are strictly dealing with being able to see and pass by dogs/people/other triggers without reaction. In the early weeks dogs will be taking breaks throughout the hour, most typically in the vehicle. In cold or hot weather you may leave your car running and/or stay with your dog on their down-time.

Leash Reactivity -Thursdays @ 8:00 p.m.

Does your dog bark, snarl, lunge, growl or become aggressive on a leash towards dogs, people or vehicles? Is he difficult to walk in public because of his poor behaviour towards others? Leash Reactivity can stem from any number of problems: too much excitement, fear, frustration, protection, lack of canine social skills or sometimes aggression. Regardless of the root cause, this Behaviour-Modification class will help you understand your dog, how to advocate for him and start you on the road to teaching your dog to control himself around others. Part private one-on-one lesson and part group class, Leash Reactivity will arm you with the knowledge and skills to work with your unique case.
