Deb Helfrich has been teaching dog training classes for over a decade and loves working with dogs and their handlers. She works to solve challenges, build a healthy dog-handler relationship, and achieve training goals.
This class is for dogs and their handlers to obtain a firm grasp on practical basics, and will take place at the Fairfax Community Center (1210 Main Street, Fairfax, Vermont) on Wednesday evening.
Class benefits include:
- Learning how to gently socialize your dog using an understanding of dog behavior and positive exposure to prepare them for different environments and experiences.
- Getting your dog comfortable with body handling and various interactions through gentle, gradual experiences
- Teaching your dog to settle down and have self control
- Learning basic relationship-based obedience training and manners and understanding how to be a fair and effective leader for your dog.
- Excellent preparatory class for future dog obedience courses (as well as therapy dog work).
- Learning behaviors that you can build on in later training.
Learning handling skills: timing, consistency, reading your dog, understanding the training techniques and how to apply them, knowing how to work with your unique pup’s skills and temperament!
