The APDT C.L.A.S.S. is an educational program to promote positive reinforcement dog training and to strengthen your relationship with your canine partner. We teach and appreciate real-life, practical skills, we start with shaping such as walking nicely on a leash, settling down, sits, drop it, leave it, downs, meeting strangers, table & door manners, focus, coming when called, and getting along with other dogs. We will play a lot of games thoughout the training. This will also help you pass the AKC CGCA test.
Their are three levels where you can earn a BA, M.A., and a Ph.D. certificates thru APDT. You can go online to ADPT and sign up as a student in order to earn the certificate. We will go over some of the questions in class so you can answer the questions they will ask. We will go over levels B.A . & M. A. in this class for those who already have their BA.
The more acceptable behavior your dog learns the less room there is for undesirable behavior.
You need to bring a collar, a six foot lead, a MAT or blanket for dog, Bring a hungry dog and LOTS of yummy treats. The first 2 classes you will need to bring crates, preferably a metal crate, if you do not have let me know I have extras for you to use. No aggressive dogs.
