My Walk & Train class is for dogs that have attended a basic obedience class or had private obedience training and can perform basic cues like providing attention, sit, down, come, leave it, stay, wait and polite leash manners in a low distraction environment such as your home or out for a walk when no other distractions are present. The class is designed to provide real life distractions to proof behaviors so that you can obtain better reliability with these cues in an outdoor setting or any novel setting.
Assuming your dog is sociable and enjoys meeting new people, other dogs, and going places with you, then this is the right class for you. If you have a dog that is overly reactive (vocal or aggressively lunging) at dogs or other environmental stimuli, this class is not suitable at this time. Please consider private lessons to help balance your dog. If your dog is fearful of new things, people, dogs, environments, noises, and generally lacks self-confidence in novel situations, this class is not suitable at this time. Please consider private lessons to help balance your dog.

Walk & Train $185.00
Prerequisite: This class is for dogs 6+ months of age that have complete my Level-1 obedience class or equivalent. This is a great class to take if you have a difficult time getting your dog to comply with cues outside of the home or just want to get more practice around distractions. In this class we meet at 4-different locations (a small neighborhood park, the yacht harbor, the Aptos Pollo Grounds and downtown Santa Cruz) so you get experience working with your dog around lots of different stimuli and your dog learns how to 'generalize' the cues. We spend 90-minutes working in each location and the class runs for 4-weeks.
New classes starting:
Saturday, August 15th 10:00am
Wednesday, September 2nd at 10:00am
