K9 Manners Class - Pre Course Reading
K9 Manners?... What's That?
The info on the next few slides is to tell you a little bit about what to expect from class with us at K9 Manners Matter.
Our classes are DIFFERENT! We aren't going to be focusing on
boring Sit, Down, Stay, obedience stuff. Before you panic, let me explain....
My bet is your dog already knows Sit, just doesn't do it reliably.
My other bet is, if you have your dog's undivided attention with no distractions around, they act pretty great and if that were all there was to life with your pup you wouldn't even be here at dog class!
So, my question to you is:
"Do you want a dog who will stop jumping on people when you say Sit? OR do you want a dog that
has MANNERS, that knows jumping on people isn't the best choice?"
Don't get me wrong, sitting on command or following any other obedience cue is important when your dog is asked to do so.
However, do you constantly want to have to tell your dog what to do? Or would your rather they did it on their own without your input required because they already know what's expected of them?
Welcome to the IDEA OF K9 MANNERS!
We're going to focus not on a dog who just listens, but a dog who LEARNS!
AND we're going to have fun doing it!
