Obedience classes and any of our sport classes: if you are a new student with Pawsitive Canine, we may invite you to bring your dog to a pre-class evaluation to get to know you and make sure your dog is ready for the challenges of group classes.
We ask that you bring your dog to our obedience classes with a flat collar (as opposed to a prong or choke collar), a 4 or 6 foot leash (as opposed to a flexi or retractable-lead, or any chain leashes) and a lot (more than you think you will need) of your dog's favorite tiny, soft treats that are no bigger than a pencil eraser (string cheese and hot dogs seem to be a "hit" with most dogs). Any questions, call us and we will answer if we aren't out with the pooches or leave a message and we will call you back, promise). We reserve the right to dismiss a handler/dog team from class if we observe any aggression or inappropriate behaviors on the training center grounds.
