    Homework for Group Classes!

    Basic Class:

    Remember to practice only 15-20 min per session, 1-2 times per day.   Your homework is to continue and work on Recall with a Stranger:

    • Recall with a Stranger:  (Be in a safe place) Have someone hold your dogs leash, feed your dog, then run away.  Turn around and Verbally Recall (Fido Come) and back up and target your food between your legs.  Praise your dog as he/she is coming. Once your dog is there, continue backing up about 5-10 more feet.  Have the sit and then feed and praise your dog.  Remember if they “come, sit, then they get” :) !
    • Heel with turns
    • Heel to a Sit
    • Sit to a Down
    • Down Stay- remember to stay close and do small circles.  If he/she gets up, calmly just verbally tell he/she to ‘Down’ and correct to a down.

    ***Remember do not correct unless you can follow through, and 0 Tolerance***

    Remember to ‘Pop’ don’t pull.  Walk your straight lines while heeling, and no sniffing or pulling while heeling.  When you sit, pop straight up to the sky.  0 Tolerance!  We will see you next week!

    Intermediate Class:

    Welcome back to 4 more weeks!  Remember to continue practicing 10-15 min per session and 1-2 time per day.  Your homework is:

    • Start increasing your distance and distraction for your Down Stays.  Remember, the higher the distraction, the closer you need to be on that leash.  Gradually, you may increase your distraction and your distance from your dog.
    • Start using your Hand Signals in conjunction with your verbal commands.  Soon we will go over how to start using one or the other!
    • Continue practicing your Recalls with a Stranger!  Remember to verbally call your dog with their name, back up and Target!

    See you all next week!  Email us with any questions you may have at
