Our group classes are fun, inviting spaces for your dog to socialize and learn.

Agility Playground


 

Agility Playground provides the structure and fun of agility without the commitment of extensive training for competition. We focus on helping you and your dog connect as a team to master the obstacles. No experience is necessary. Agility training can help increase your dog's confidence, self control and focus while providing physical activity and mental stimulation. Basic commands such as “stay” and "down" are also incorporated into the course. Agility training provides an incredible opportunity for you and your dog to promote bonding while having fun!

Reactive Rover Workshop


Does your leashed dog lunge, bark or go crazy at the sight of other dogs when out for a walk? This 40 minute workshop will focus on the dog's “reactive” behavior and equip you with new strategies to manage it. While frightening and unpleasant, this behavior more often indicates excitement or fear rather than aggression. Frequently, it can be “the other end of the leash”  that inadvertently reinforces the behavior. The workshop will help you anticipate a reactive burst, and teach you and your dog calm alternative responses in order to recondition the reactive response. Reinforcement of basic commands are also incorporated. The workshop is limited to five dogs per session. The cost is $30. No discounts applicable.


Location: Cloisters Park
Class Time: 12:00:00
Class Date: 03/04/2023 Class Info: Workshops take place the first Saturday of the month - weather permitting. Please bring a lot of high value treats for your dog. NO retractable leashes or choke chains allowed. Pre registration is required. Cost is $30. Pay on site. Contact Good Dogma if you have any questions.

The instructor was very knowledgeable and prepared. She truly understood the dog’s behavior. I would recommend this class to all dog owners. We benefited greatly from it. Thanks!
