Focus Around Distractions In-Person Class

 Focus Around Distractions - Beginner Class

Announcing the Focus Around Distractions Class
Yooper Paws Training Center
611 N. Hooper St. Kingsford, MI 49802

Beginning March 2nd at 6pm
FAD Class runs 6 weeks for $200 per dog.

Adolescent dogs often struggle most with distractions that are beyond our control. This can be other people and/or dogs we meet while out on a walk, wild animals or pets that pop up unexpectedly, or any of a million other things that our dogs might react to. This class is designed to help teach your dog the value of focusing on their person more then the environment by using games to build up the reinforcement history. At the same time, owners will be learning about various positive reinforcement training techniques to train various behaviors they want their dogs to enjoy repeating.

This is a beginner level class for young dogs from 6 months to 2 yrs old with owners who want to move away from the demanding, corrective based training used by alpha dominance trainers and move more toward developing a relationship based on love, bonding, and trust. Each week we will learn a new skill, a new game, a new form of enrichment, and how to apply reinforcement effectively.

Class will take place on Thursdays at 6pm
at the Yooper Paws Training Center 
beginning on March 2nd 
and proceeding every week.

Students should plan to arrive about 30 minutes prior to class and do a walk outside the building to help them calm down a little before entering class. Please keep your dog at a safe distance away from other dogs at this time and enter the building one at a time. Be prepared to clean up after your dog! Disposal bags will be available inside if needed.
