If you are looking for a great way to work around other dogs and in different distractions, this class is for you!

Relationship Building Class

$150

4 Weeks

There are few things as special as the deep bond we share with our dogs. However, we can often be frustrated by our dogs when they don't listen or they do things that we just don't understand. Sometimes we think our dog is just not listening when in fact, we haven't been clear in what we have asked.

In this class, we will expand your understanding of your dog - and learn how to see the world the way your dog sees it. This is not a "training" class, but we will change your dog's behaviour by changing your relationship with the dog.  You will learn communication on your dog's level and how to leverage that understanding to communicate with your dog in new ways. 

​You will learn how to help keep your dog calm in new situations. By teaching your dog to navigate obstacles your dog will build confidence and learn how to follow you. We will build relationship and mental stimulation through nose work. And we will take class trips to dog friendly stores and restaurants so your dog learns how to handle him or herself in all situations.

There are no prerequisites to this class. You can take this class if you have taken other My Dog Rocks classes, or if you have not joined us for classes before. 

You will need a martingale collar, 6' leash and 15' long line.  

Only 5 dogs per class.

Advanced Foundations with 6 Month Membership

$225

6 Weeks

You MUST have completed our Foundations Group Class in order to take this Advanced Class. Why? Our classes are like no other. We have found that dogs that have taken the Foundations Group Class are far ahead of dogs taking other basic group classes. 

​Your dog thinks an open door is an invitation to run. Your dog knows when the leash is off and has lost all listening skills. You  are worried what will happen if your leash ever breaks. Then this class is for you.

This is an advanced class if you are looking to improve your dog's listening skills around distractions, and get your dog off leash!

- 6 weeks of classes with one class per week. PLUS our 6 Month Membership means you can come to class as many times over 6 months. Learning happens over time, so come and practice, get support and keep learning!

- Learn how to get your dog off leash, using your leash and collar
- On leash sit, stay, stand, come with high levels of distractions
- Off leash sit, stay, stand, come
- We will up the ante working in more difficult and tempting distractions so your dog will listen in any situation. 
- Build confidence and independence in your dog with long distance and out-of-sight stays

- BONUS - Lifetime Access to our client Facebook group for support and information between classes. This means access to the trainer even AFTER you have completed class ($300 value)
