Polishing Class (Free for That’s My Dog! clients)
Our polishing classes are offered 1 to 2 times a week for our TMD clients. The dog training polishing classes are the perfect way for dog owners to “polish up” their dog’s obedience and good manners. These classes are included as a bonus, free for 6 months to all dogs who enroll in either our Private Lessons, Day Training or Board and Train programs. After 6 months the drop in fee for class is only $5.00!
These 50-minute classes lead by a professional trainer are filled with unique learning opportunities that help owners fully understand how to utilize their dog’s obedience to the fullest. By working with your dog in an environment filled with dogs and other humans of all ages, dogs learn that obedience is a new way of life, not just a trick that is performed at home or under ideal conditions.
Polishing classes “polish up” the skills a dog has learned in training so that the new behaviors become well generalized and more resistant to distractions.
Polishing classes are split into 2 levels of skill; Level 1 and Level 2
The Level 1 class is focused on teaching and polishing the basic obedience commands of Heel, Sit, Down, Place and Come. It is intended for dogs that are new to the training program. If you need help getting your dog to perform the behaviors or maintain them for a duration (ie. Getting them to stay) this class will be of the most value.
The Level 2 Class is focused on polishing the obedience training to higher levels of distraction and reliability. It is intended for social dogs that are ready to work off leash in the midst of high distraction. If you are interested in obtaining a higher level of reliability and finesse with your dog’s training this class will help you achieve your goals.
