Dog training becomes fun when you qualify to come to the group lessons.
But What does THAT mean?
In Train as You live® method “Qualified” means you have demonstrated “some”control of your dog in distracting situations.
You are ready to integrate other dogs, and higher level of dog training distractions.
These Guidelines are here to maximize everyone’s gain in their dog training session.
(By Participating on your first Group Lesson You are acknowledging to have read and understood this post)
The group: The power of group lesson is “The Group” If there are less than 3 clients RSVPed 48hrs. prior to the Group Lessons/ Meet-Ups, we will cancel that session.
RSVP: via our Facebook Clients Only Group or email Off Leash Dog Training Office more than 48 hours before the class to reserve your place in the group session. If you attend without registering, you may be asked to observe (rather than participate in) the session.
MAXIMUM 14 DOGS ALLOWED: By limiting the number of dogs in Group Lessons/ Meet-Ups everyone’s experience as well as safety is improved. At this time Facebook is not capable of limiting the number of attendees. So we ask our clients to use HONOR System to Self regulate. REMEMBER: If you attend without registering, you may be asked to observe (rather than participate in) the session.
Dog Training Safety
1 dog per handler.
Be prepared. Make sure you’re ready for dog training. Make sure your dog understands and able perform the commands taught during the “First Phase” of the training. If you are unprepared, you’re welcome to observe, but may not participate.
Leash / Muzzle All dogs must be on-leash, BEFORE the training. If your dog is people- or dog-aggressive must be wearing a well-fitted muzzle. Mesh muzzles are not acceptable.
Arrived Late? New dogs and owners will be methodically integrated into the group. Do not allow your dog to approach newcomers either on- or off-leash until the trainer has indicated that it is safe to do so, since this can be intimidating and dangerous. If you are a late comer wait until you are OKed to get in.
Don’t be “That Guy” Playing is the best part of dog training. But! Please watch your dog. Keep your dog away from bystanders, dogs that are new to the group , or uncomfortable dogs. You are responsible for your dog at all times, so please monitor your dog’s behavior.
The Family For safety reasons, during outdoor sessions, children, dogs, and other adults who are not participating directly in the class are not allowed in the exercises. Children must NEVER approach any dog without permission of the trainer or the owner. All children under ten years of age must be directly supervised by an adult not participating in the session. Please note that this does not apply to a child over the age of ten who is directly handling a dog, or couples alternating sessions.
There are no limits to weird things we will face while training with our dogs. We hope these guidelines will provide some basic guidance.
Looking forward to seeing you at our group lessons!
