Stay With Me Class

This is an eight week class designed to get your dog to work with you! Are you tired of walking into the ring with a dog that thinks he is on vacation! Does your dog either take off, shut down, or stress out when you are at a show? Do you wonder if your dog will be a part of your team, or will he suddenly leave you, either physically or mentally? Whether you are showing in the obedience or agility ring, or you just want to be able to take your dog with you anywhere, this is the class for you. You will teach your dog that staying with you both physically and mentally is not an option. Your dog will understand that he must "stay with you", and that when he does "stay with you" all good things happen! When you are through with this class your relationship with your dog will greatly improve. So quit being unsuccessful in the ring or embarrassed in public with your dog's behavior and take control! The "stay with me" class will be the best thing you do for you and your dog!
