Are you having problems with your dog bringing the toy back? Is he playing the classic game of keep away or your dog just won't drop it? The fetch-it class will go over safety of the game, the proper toys to be playing with, and will help you work on the problems you're having and learn to create a fun game with you and your dog together!

Really Reliable Recall

Come join us for a 4-week Really Reliable Recall Adventure Class.  There will be a quick review of the basics and then we will jump into playing such games as "The Recall Race", "The Potato Chip Drive By", and the "Look! there's a person on the floor!". There will be many other fun exercises to strengthen your connection between you and your dog. It's so fabulous to see your dog turn on a dime and come running back to you with enthusiasm, looking like they are going to knock you over (or maybe they do!) because they are so excited about returning to you! Better yet, you will be improving your casual recall at the same time - win-win!

Come join us. If you have not ever trained the Really Reliable Recall, we can also get you started in the right direction.
