Group Classes vs. Private training.
Group classes are designed to teach all basic commands in a multiple student setting. some of the benifits of this are that your dog will be socialized through having to function around other dogs (flooding). This can be overwhelming at first for your dog but they quickly adjust and before you know it you will be able to have your dog sit politely while having a conversation with another dog owner and dog only feet away. your dog will attend a group walk with other owners and dogs and have access to the portable agility course! All cues are taught every class and you can attend group class as often as you like until you are ready to attend the advanced class. Private Training takes place in your home. Sessions range from 45mins to 2hrs depending on the dog. (the dog always decides how long the session will be) This atmosphere keeps your dog in the comfort of the family home with no distractions. Homework is given at the end of the session outlining everything covered step by step and how often to practice the cues. Progress is directly related to the completion of homework before the following session.
