beyond the backyard

Do you find yourself saying “but he always does it at home” or “she only does it when I have a treat”? This is the class for you. If your dog already knows the basics (sit, stay, come, walk nice) but has trouble doing those things without a treat or in the presence of distractions, join us and learn how to take those skills (and others) to the next level. This is a 6 week class and is based on the book of the same name by Denise Fenzi. We will meet both at Paws and Claws and at other local spots so that we can work on getting the best behavior in a variety of situations with different types of distractions.
