Have you given any thought to what you want to get out of training your dog?
Only once this is ‘mastered’ can we make the move toward instructing our dog. If I instruct my dog from a body
that is full of anger or anxiety or doubt, then the dog can feel that and that feeling can cause confusion in the training session.
Once we get to the instruction part of the class, then it is usually as simple as consistency and supporting the dog to understand what you asking of them. I don’t know why but it seems that dogs need the same instructions over and over their entire life, so get used to being the instructor and get used to being very verbal with your dog !
Many classes offer straight up pet obedience and others offer the opportunity to socialize as well as train your dog. Harmony 4 Dogs offers the socializing and training plus a wider perspective by putting the human-canine relationship first and making sure that is the foundation for everything else to be built upon.
Any of these dog class options can work well, its just a matter of you choosing which one fits best with both you and your dog.
