Recall: Come to Me!

Recall (coming when called) is one of the most important skills you can teach your dog. Whether your dog will be hiking with you in the wild or just running free at a park, recall keeps your dog safe.

  • Teach your dog to come enthusiastically using reward-based techniques.
  • Build strong recall for common situations.
  • Create strategies for distracting environments: wildlife, loud noises, traffic, etc.

This small (4-6 dogs) group class will meet one hour per week for 5 weeks (with appropriate covid-19 precautions).

Stationing: Hang Out Over There Please!

Stationing has two major components: going to a “place” (platform, mat, bed, etc.) and hanging out there (sit-stay, down-stay, etc.). This skill is useful in a wide variety of situations: give your dog something to do 

  • when guests arrive
  • while you make and eat dinner
  • so you can work with another dog

Stationing seems like a relatively simple behavior for your dog to perform, but it actually requires many skills. In this class, we will break down stationing into its individual components and then put them together into the final behavior.

This small group class (4-6 dogs) will meet one hour per week for 5 weeks at a Corvallis park (with appropriate covid-19 precautions).

Walk This Way: Loose-Leash Walking

Most dogs walk faster than humans. This can lead to a fair bit of frustration for both the dog and the human when attached to each other with a leash.

The main objective of loose-leash walking is for your dog to walk at a similar pace with you so that the leash is relaxed and does not have any tension. Sounds pleasant, doesn’t it? Let’s find the best way to achieve this goal for you and your dog.
