What is real world etiquette?

Real World Etiquette involves canine obedience and is highly focused on the human learners, by contrast, is built around problem solving and decision making applied to real-life scenarios. Basic obedience behaviors you can expect to learn are: sit, down, stay, come, loose leash walking, leave it, and more. You will learn how to use these basic behaviors to eliminate most problem behaviors. For example, leash pulling, jumping on guests, door dashing, car chasing, and more. What’s most important with this class is you will be able to take what you learn and be successful at home or in public.

 

How is this different from basic obedience or other manners classes?

This class is unique from others in our area for several reasons. One being that we offer revolving enrollment (RE). RE allows you to enter the class at any time, as long as the class is not full that particular week. Class is structured so that each week does not depend on the previous week, so you can start at any point.

Going on vacation? You can miss up to 2 sessions in the 6-week time span and make up the missed sessions when that week’s session comes up again in the cycle (makeup date is typically 6 weeks from the missed session), but ONLY if the class is not full, so please try to attend all 6 weeks when possible.

How we make it fun you ask? We set up mock scenarios as if you were in a vet office, restaurant, groomers, dog park, or out for a walk. Our training is not just limited to a classroom. Weather permitting, we will venture into the real world. Below is a breakdown of each session:

 

Veterinary, Health and Grooming Day  – We show you how to handle emergencies and take you through a grooming and mock examination. We cover some grooming to help you avoid unneeded costs and vet bills too.

 

Outing Day – Taught in the real world, we cover car and street safety and training on the town. We teach some emergency measures in case your dog gets away, and how to handle the dog park.

 

Training Day – We focus on teaching the dog how to pay attention, listen and follow commands. We cover some basic commands and how to teach and when to use them.

 

Household Behavior Day – This class covers problems that occur at home including guests and workmen in the house. We also address common problems like jumping, barking and housebreaking in addition to taking time for individual questions.

 

Confidence Course Day – This is a fun class where we teach the dogs different obstacles and introduce them to new surfaces. We build their confidence and teach stairs, load in the car, kennel up, and even include a few agility obstacles.

 

Café Day – This class is to train our dogs to behave in public, on the street and sidewalks. We pretend we are going to the sidewalk café and behave with lots of people around that want to meet and greet your dog. If able, we may go to an actual café.

 

Is my dog eligible for this class?

All breeds and ages, including puppies, are welcome to take this course. Our goals are to help you enjoy taking your dog out into the real world and to equip you with the problem solving abilities to enable you to feel more in control all while having fun.
