Foundations for Fun

Foundations for Fun is $175 and includes six sessions with your dog, training handouts, email support and membership in a private Foundations for Fun Facebook group with video tutorials.

Foundations for Fun is not your standard, basic obedience class. Don’t worry, we will cover the basics like coming when called, how to walk nicely on a leash and others but the focus will be on equipping you with the underlying skills needed to begin teaching your dog things you can use outside of the classroom in the real world.

The first five sessions of the series will take place at Deer Creek Doggie Day Camp.  The class size will be limited to no more than five teams.  The setting allows for ample space between teams and the small class size ensures each team gets plenty of individualized attention.

The goal will be for the sixth session of the series to take place at an offsite, public location where we will work on practicing our new skills in action. This will depend on the needs and skills of the teams in the class and it will also depend on the weather.

In order to be as successful as possible, participants must practice training between classes.  Don’t worry though!  You will be provided with plenty of support between sessions to help you stay on track including membership in a secret Facebook group with lots of videos and handouts.

Classes are at 1:00 on Sundays.  The class dates are as follows: September 11 and 18, October 9, 16, 23 and 30th.

Are you ready to start having more fun with your dog? Here’s how it works…..

  1. To register, follow this link and select the service of your choice from the drop-down menu.
  2. Drop Your Jaws Dog Training will email you a confirmation email within two business days (if you do not receive an email within 48 hours, make sure to check your junk mail). The email will contain a little more information about classes including any supplies you will need, and information for how to pay online.

Dogs participating in the in person group classes need to be at least sixteen weeks old and fully up to date on vaccinations including Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus and Bordetella and you must provide documentation from your veterinarian of your dog’s vaccinations prior to starting class.

In person group classes are great for lots of dogs but they are not the best fit for all dogs, and some dogs need a little extra support before they are ready for in-person group classes. If your dog reacts in overly excited or anxious ways when around other dogs or people, or has a known history of acting aggressively, please do not sign up for an in-person group class. Just a few examples of what I mean by “overly excited” or “anxious” would be repeated barking, lunging, growling, excessive shaking or inability to take food. Some dogs do better in private sessions at least to start. If you are unsure about which training option is right for you, contact me and I’m happy to talk with you about it. For the safety of clients and their dogs, dogs who are displaying aggressive or overly reactive behaviors are not allowed in class.

Drop Your Jaws Dog Training is excited to be offering in person classes and seminars at Deer Creek Doggie Day Camp!
