REAL K9 Basic Obedience Class

Training is not about asking your dog to obey when you speak. It’s about having such a strong connection and understanding of boundaries that the dog will constantly and naturally be looking to you for nonverbal cues. When that happens, listening to commands occurs effortlessly.

Learn how to:
• Teach Leash Walking and basic commands like Come, Sit and Down.
• How to properly use rewards and avoid the dog training you.
• How to incorporate commands into your daily routine and real life situations

Duration: 2 hours
Maximum of 4 dogs per class
Cost: $150.00

REAL K9 Behavior Modification Class    

Prerequisite:  REAL K9’s Mind

This class is designed to improve Dogmanship by working with the dog’s natural instincts and methods of communication. Dogs REACT to how we ACT. When a dog is emotionally and mentally disconnected from its handler, it starts making its own decisions which leads to behavioral issues such as displaced frustration, stress or aggression, anti mental stimulation (boredom), testing hierarchy and so forth.

Learn how to:
• Correct unwanted behavior, by communicating first and foremost with body language, not commands.
• Teach a dog to be patient, respectful and organically look up to you for guidance and reassurance.
• Create “Fire-Drills” to enhance your connection and incorporate non-verbal communication into your normal routine.

Duration: 2 hours
Maximum of 4 dogs per class
Cost: $150.00
