Friday March 13th 6:00 – 9:00pm
Registration is required, and groups will be formed based on dog’s size and play style to ensure the best social climate for the dogs.
You’ll be emailed your start time when you sign up. Each class will be one hour between 6-9 PM, and count as a class out of your package.
Please put Dog Park Class in the subject line.
Prerequisites: Social dogs, who have trained a basic “here” and “place” command (can be beginner level).
Curriculum: WARM UP (aka ‘Cocktail Hour’): The beginning of class will be a review of “Place” and “Here” commands – two vitally important skills for a fun and successful playgroup.
The ability to call your dog away from play as well as have him calmly watch without participating (and barking, lunging, and breaking a command) is not only a measurement of his abilities, helps control the ‘vibe’, creating a safe and conflict-free play session.
PLAY TIME: This is where the party gets started!
The goal is to have multiple play sessions for each dog, with different combinations of playmates (always size-appropriate!) in order to help increase their social skills.
In addition, we’ll teach YOU the signals of ‘good play’, ‘not-so-good play’, and how to interpret dog body language so you know what’s about to happen, and answer all your questions.
COOL DOWN: The last few minutes of class will be spent doing some basic, on-leash sequences of commands. This helps you and your dog reconnect, and ends the session with you both working as a team.
*This workshop counts as a class out of your package.*
