Rowdy Rovers/Trick Dog

Rowdy Rovers/Trick Dog: Every Wednesdays at Hunterdon Hills Animal Hospital, 7:30-8:30pm. 

For adolescent dogs who need practice with focusing around distractions and maintaining  good manners such as:

  • No pulling on leash
  • No jumping
  • Leave it, off
  • Come and settle.
The foundation of this class will be learning tricks and every day life skills.  Your dog will have the opportunity to try for their novice and intermediate AKC trick dog title at the end of the 5 week course. 

 

Early puppy training is as easy as it is enjoyable. Much more challenging though, is to ensure that your adolescent maintains bite inhibition, remains socialized and friendly to other dogs and people, and continues to pay heed to your instructions while working through adolescence. Training focuses on proofing verbal control without the need for food lures or rewards, or any other training tools. Exercises include distance sits in play (for the home, yard, dog parks and off-leash walks), settle down, rock-solid stays, and both off-leash and on-leash walking and heeling. Puppy 2 will help you teach your adolescent pup to be calm, attentive and responsive and to respond quickly, willingly and happily, especially when distracted, off-leash, and at a distance.
