Kids Class

This class is for children who want to do basic training with their dog.

Skills we teach in class.

 

In this class your child and dog will work to improve their bond and the dog's responsiveness to the child.

Together they will work towards the skills that they will need to be able to move on to other UHDTC classes.

There are a variety of topics that we may teach in this class such as:

  • Recall/attention games

  • Explaining the ways to teach a dog a new behaviour

  • Basic manners such as "Sit","Down","Come","Stand","Stay","Release"

  • Targeting behaviours such as hand/ target stick touch

  • Heelwork (walking without pulling on the lead)

  • Basic Agility and Rally-O skills such as perch work, sending your dog around a cone, through a tunnel, and/or over jumps.
