Beyond The Basics
This class expands upon basic cues such as coming when called and wait, but it takes them to a higher level. You will learn emergency cues and new behaviors that are geared to be effective even if your dog gets loose. Stopping your dog if he is running away from you, signaling your dog to go into a down from a distance, and asking your dog to come to you while ignoring distractions are just a few of the skills that you will learn in this class. Preparing for safety in the real world is emphasized. This is an 8 week class and it is limited to 8 dogs. Cost $199.
This 8-week course is limited to 8 dogs and is open to any dog that has completed our Basic, Basic for Puppy Grads or Petite Pals course
Many dogs appear perfectly trained inside the house, but become distracted when faced with the distractions of nature. This is an outdoor class* that focuses on building reliability when out and about, and at greater distances than were practiced inside. Behaviors such as coming when called and leave-it are taken to new heights when they are practiced on our 13 acre Woodland Avenue property. We work in safe, fenced in areas and with 15-30 ft. long lines. This 6 week class is limited to 6 dogs and open to any dog that has completed Advanced Training (Formally known as Off Leash Wonders). Cost $169. * In case of bad weather, class will move indoors to one of our spacious rings. Please call 973-377-0116 press 1 for the weather information line for weather related class changes.
