Event Details
Workshop: Jumping
Instructor: Alisha Fritz

Saturday, December 29, 2018 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM



This workshop will cover non-aversive techniques for training dogs to remain on the ground when greeting their human family and guests.  We will discuss the differences between greeting or eliciting attention when humans are standing, sitting, or in motion.  We will also go over how to help with jumping due to excitement at times such as meals and while being leashed. Enrolled dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations and at least 4 months old. Additional handlers are welcome. 

Please bring to workshop:·       
- Dog wearing flat collar (body harness also okay)
- 4-6 ft leash, no retractable leashes       
- Plenty of soft/stinky treats that your dog loves- e.g. hot dogs, string cheese, chicken   
- Something to carry treats such as a training pouch or pockets (plastic sandwich bags will not work as well)
