Description
Join us for Outdoor Adventures with your dog!  Many puppies and dogs often struggle with over excitement, anxiety or fearfulness when going into public places, on walks or when exposed to new environments.   Early socialization and exposure to new people, places and things is key when raising and training dogs.  We'll teach you  techniques to modify common problem behaviors and help you learn to identify potential problems before they begin using reward-based training methods. 

This 3 week class is open to puppies and adult dogs who have completed training with K9 Home Schooling or have instructor approval.   Your puppy/dog must be comfortable around other dogs, this class is not intended for puppies/dogs who are already struggling with fearful/reactive behavior.   Class will meet in a different outdoor location in the Chelsea/Dexter area each week.    

**If the weather is too cold to meet outside, we will meet at an indoor location**

Enrolled students will receive the location of each class.   

Under the direction of our experienced instructor you will work on the following skills: 
  • walking with a group of other handlers and their dogs
  • address common behavior problems such as pulling on leash and over excitement 
  • on-leash behavior around other dogs 
  • 'polite' greetings with people
  • ongoing exposure to new environments 
We suggest you work your dog on either a no-pull harness or head halter, we do not allow choke, prong or e-collars in our classes.  Handlers must be 18 years of age to participate in this class.  

**All puppies and dogs attending class must be current,  for their age,  for core vaccines/titers and the Bordetella vaccine.    Puppies must have started their vaccine protocol prior to attending class. **

**THIS CLASS IS NOT FOR DOGS THAT HAVE A HISTORY OF FEARFUL/REACTIVE BEHAVIOR OR AGGRESSION TOWARDS HUMANS OR OTHER DOGS**
