puppytraining2Here at The DogSmith we recognize the importance of having a well behaved dog and making your pets part of the family. But we also understand how busy our clients are so we designed the DogSmith “Drop-In” Class just for you.

“Drop-In” enrollment allows you to register and pay for a course while allowing you the flexibility to complete the classes over a 5 month period by attending any of a number of scheduled “drop-in” sessions that fit into your schedule. You will be given a “drop-in” class card that describes the necessary skills required for the course you have enrolled in and provides a record of competency level achieved for each skill. (Courses denoted by (*) are eligible for “Drop-In” enrollment.

Snap BackA DogSmith Specialty Class For ultimate safety, this 6-week course covers just one skill, a really reliable recall. Gain peace of mind knowing that in an emergency situation your dog will return to you when asked. We begin by teaching the dog a solid response to its name. We will then build on the recall behavior by playing lots of games and reinforcing fast returns to you. As your dog's recall strengthens we practice the recall amidst distractions and then we proof the behavior for reliability. You may only need your recall once but when you need it, it has to work.
