Kids and K9s Summer Class
Kids and K9s Summer Class is designed for children 8-12 years of age (parent or guardian must attend class).
This fun class will guide children in how to train their dogs in some beginning steps of obedience, agility, and tricks. Only positive reinforcement will be used, and safety and responsibility will be emphasized. Each week will focus on creating a great working relationship between the child and his or her family dog. Children will be introduced to the concepts of clicker training. Instruction will be provided on bite prevention, veterinary care, responsible dog ownership and learning to understand what their dogs are telling them.
Students must be able to control their dog on leash. Dogs should not have aggression issues with dogs, people, or kids.
The class size is limited to 8 youngsters and their dogs, and all dogs must have completed their vaccinations, including rabies.
A parent or guardian must remain in the training ring for the first class and must remain on premises during all other classes.
Monday nights from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., beginning June 24, 2013, and concluding Monday, July 29, 2013.
