Canine Good Citizen Prep Canine Good Citizen is a title awarded by the AKC to dogs that pass a short evaluation assessing their basic manners skills in common everyday scenarios. Recalls, polite greetings, and impulse control are all incorporated into this evaluation. Canine Good Citizen Prep will focus on learning the ten test skills and helping students individually identify what skills their pup needs a bit more practice with. Students who complete five consecutive weeks of class will be sent an evaluation schedule to sign up for their Canine Good Citizen Evaluation hosted in studio (4906 Wisconsin Ave, NW). One evaluation is included in the price of class. Canine Good Citizen Prep is best suited for dogs that have graduated from Puppy 2.0 or Puppy 3.0 or have approval from the class trainer.

Reactive 1.0 Dog Reactive dogs can display a wide variety of behaviors when they are uncomfortable with their environment, people, dogs or a variety of other "triggers". This class can help reduce your dog's reactions and build confidence, focus and better manners through a series of pattern games and voluntary behaviors.   With each new game you will create safe, predictable patterns so your dog can improve basic skills, then we can add in greater distractions, triggers and teach your dog to cope better with the dc environment and everything it throws at them! We will also help teach you canine language, training skills, management, timing, and all about the variety of rewards that life can offer you and your pup that can be associated with boogiemen and triggers that bother your dog. We are happy to work in conjunction with your vet or vet behaviorist for any reactive dog or any class or in home lesson.  A dog that is physically and mentally healthy is the best dog, and has the best chance at learning new skills.

Reactive 2.0 Dog  Four more much needed weeks to continue building duration, patterns, engagement  and good feelings. Teaching your pup that they can request approach to their particular boogieman and moving towards your goals with new games, follow the leader, defaults, and parallel walks!
