Obedience Bootcamp

Are you having difficulties communicating with your dog? Did you just adopt a dog and need some help getting started? Our Obedience Bootcamp classes are for beginners or experienced dog owners looking to build a strong relationship with their dog and practice obedience in a group setting. In this session the following skills and topics will be covered:

  • Recall (come when called)
  • Loose leash walking
  • Sit, Down, Stay,
  • Working through distractions
  • How to greet people and dogs
  • Learn how to wait going thru doors
  • Hand signals … and much more

The training method that will be used in this class is called Marker Training.

What is marker (or clicker) training? In a nutshell, it’s an animal training method based on behavioural psychology that relies on marking desirable behaviour and rewarding it. This black and white method of communication is based on positive reinforcement and will revolutionize the way that you train your dog.  This class will teach you about the power of training your dog with food and will focus on building the dog/handler relationship through engagement and motivation. During the class you will learn the basic concepts of luring, leash pressure and shaping of behaviours. We will also cover classical/operant conditioning and discuss how to build motivation in your dog through productive play. Marker training can be used to train any behaviour, from basic , obedience and tricks to behavioural modification. There are no prerequisites for this class. It is recommended that you bring treats, a food pouch, leash and a clicker for your dog.  Please call now to reserve your spot.
