Foundation Fundamentals

A positive reinforcement class teaching your dog body awareness, core strengthening, and impulse control around distractions. All training is geared towards motivating and conditioning your dog while creating focus for you in the face of distractions (i.e. squirrels). This class is good foundation training for all dogs whether they are performance dogs or pets. Dogs of all ages are welcome providing they are current on all vaccinations.

You will need to bring:

Toy(s)

Treats

Crate

6 foot leash

The class is six sessions long and will meet every Thursday from 6:00pm to 7:00 pm.

As with all our classes you must be a paid-member of KCA to participate. The class fee for members is $30, and for non-members $50(this includes the $20 membership fee, good until July 1 of 2014).

      I'm hoping that you will offer this class again in the future. I just wasn't able to commit to the class time this time.

    I am so happy to have Boomer in this class. At 7 months, it is just perfect for him. Hope to get that attention early.

    This class was very interesting, not only does it get your dog to solve puzzles it causes you to really think. I think the methods learned in class will be really helpful for training different behaviors in the future. I love the way the club offers unique classes!

    The last time I saw her, Maxine wanted to take this class. She does not have a computer. The +1 on my RSVP is for Maxine. Please see my first post about her 5 days ago.

      HI Shan, no worries. I spoke with Maxine yesterday and she is all set and will be there tomorrow. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!

      I just talked to her about 30 minutes ago and she told me the same thing. Thank you Shelly. Looking forward to see what Boomer and I can learn new.

    Darn, I wish I would have checked in here sooner. Skyler would definitely benefit from this. Will be looking forward to the next time this class is offered.

    HI Deby and Shelly, just wanted to let you know that I gave up my place in the class so Maxine could come and the class is full. Maxine does not have a computer so she is unable to sign up online, therefore, I will not delete my name on the signup list. Boomer is only 7 months old, and we have time to wait for a later class. Glad you had such great response.

    Shan: Don't give up your spot. You can have mine. I'm not going to be able to change my Thursday night class this soon to the BOTC trial.

    • Shan and R.

      Thank you, Pam. Don't cancel yours then, so Maxine can have it.

      I think you & Kai would really get a lot out of this class & enjoy yourselves. We’re going to teach behaviors that will build a better relationship between you & your dog. Come on out.
