Welcome to See Spot Sit!
Our training is positive reinforcement based. The course includes the American Kennel Club, Canine Good Citizen (CGC) curriculum and the test will be given at the end of your course. You will be taught how to communicate with your dog in a way that a dog understands. You will also learn how to be your dog’s leader, which is infinitely important.
The success of you and your dog largely depends on your commitment at class and continued work at home. Several short practice sessions each day is our recommendation. You must keep it fun and if you push too long, they will shut down or get anxious.
*If your dog has behavior issues that preclude it from being a candidate for group classes, we are happy to tailor a program that is right for you and your dog, which may include a recommendation for private, behavior modification sessions beginning with a 2 hour temperament, needs and goals assessment.
***Puppies must be 10 days out from their second set of shots to come to public classes. To be safe, check with your vet!***
What to Bring:
- 4 – 6 foot leash. (Retractable leashes are not allowed in class.)
- Small, very small, treats that are smelly and tasty! Not the treats they get on a regular basis.
- Treat bags are optional but extremely convenient! :).
- Properly fitted collar. Two fingers snugly fitting underneath is the proper fit. No harnesses that hook at the shoulders unless you have a very small dog. Harnesses with a front clip are highly recommended.
- Potty bags.
- Fresh water for your dog.
- A happy, positive, determined and confident attitude!
