Studio Directions-Turn off Second St. in front of Cloud 5 and drive down the row until you see a parking lot on the left. Park anywhere in the lot. There are pretty blue planters in front of the door. Look for the Santa Fe Dog #42 signage on the walls on the left. Plenty of parking and easy to find.

Foundation Skills 2.0 

Motivational training to create a toolbox of problem-solving skills, and further develop a common language for you and your dog. A small class format allows us to design this class to fit the handler’s and dog’s skills.  The team will learn and recognize the benefits of Engage and Disengage, Attention/Focus games, Wait/Stay, On/Off targeting, Come to heel on the right and left, Whiplash turn, Leash handling skills, Variations on Leave it,  and as an experiment, Intro to cooperative husbandry skills. Learn how to install a verbal cue vs a physical cue. You WILL need to work with your dog  between classes to keep up with the material. 5-10 minutes a day. If homework isn’t you, that is ok, and this is just not the class for you at this time.  This fun class is suitable as an ongoing training “Lab” for YOU and your dog.

Prerequisite: Teams should have completed one previous set of classes with their dog.  The handler should be able to elicit a sit, a down, and get the dog’s attention. Dogs should be generally friendly with dogs and people, but we don’t mind a little rah-rah. Ask if you are concerned about your dogs behavior in a class environment. Small Class format is limited to 6 dog/handler teams, so there is time for personal attention.  *First class is a required orientation without dogs in attendance*

Saturdays 11:30am-12:30pm-Orientation is 1/14, then dates are 1/21,1/28,2/4,2/11,2/18-FULL!  Sign up for next time…
