Loose Leash Walking — Initial Consult + 6 Lessons — $600
Does your dog pull you around while on walks? Do you not walk your dog because it’s no fun or dangerous? This six lesson package is all about teaching loose leash walking to you and your dog. We will build your skills starting step by step inside your home and then take the training outside to your normal walking areas! This package also includes information on training tools that can help mitigate the pulling while training is taking place along with some exercise ideas to help increase the mental and physical exercise of the dog until the loose leash walking training is advanced enough for walks to become enjoyable again.
This package includes our 2-hr initial consultation to get a complete picture of your dog and the pulling behavior you are seeing.
BA C.L.A.S.S. Prep — Initial Consult + 6 Lessons — $600
(Also MA CLASS, PhD CLASS, and CGC prep options available)
This package will teach all the skills in the BA level CLASS (Canine Life and Social Skills) evaluation. If a dog is learning all of these for the first time, we will focus on getting the skills we need using plenty of treats. If a dog already has most of the skills, we will focus on meeting the test criteria for fewer treat (or no treats for CGC and PhD).
This package includes a 2-hr initial consult to get a clear picture of your dog’s strengths and challenges in terms of their behavior and to discuss CGC/CLASS program in general.
BA SKILLS: Wait at the door, basic recall and leashing up manners, loose leash walking, leave it, meet and greet (stranger), stay, settle, wait for the food bowl, give/take and two optional bonus tricks.
This package can be designed in two different ways: you can choose to do 5 lessons going over all the skills for the evaluation and then week 6 is set up as the evaluation OR you can choose to use all 6 lessons on building the behaviors for the evaluation and you can pay an additional lesson fee for the evaluation or check when Tena is offering evaluations at Western PA Humane Society or another group evaluation. You do not need to select which option prior to starting.
