What is it?
Group class is a good way to work around controlled distraction environment. This is excellent as a support system to follow up private or day training programs.
How does it work?
Many dog training companies pack numerous handler/dog teams in one class with one instructor. All of our classes have limited enrollment. By limiting our class size, our clients get the one to one attention they deserve and can achieve maximum results.
We have implemented a rolling enrollment for most of our classes. This means that new students can join at any time.
We find that this method works well for practicing around distraction in a controlled environment and allows for life to happen where students do not have to worry about making up a class.
