Class Registration Handout 1
What should I do to get ready for class?
One Week Before Class: Feed your puppy or dog ALL of her food by hand for a week. Measure out all of the day's food in the morning and let all the family members get in on the act throughout the day.
Dog Greetings: Remember that dogs have different greeting styles and keep your dog at a safe distance from others. Be sure not to let your dog run up into other dogs' personal space. Please don't allow your dog free access to sniff another person's dog without asking permission of the owner first.
What should I bring to class?
Collar and Leash: Please have your dog on a flat buckle/snap collar or martingale collar and a 4-or 6-foot leather or nylon webbing leash. Please, no flexi or chain leashes, choke chain collars or pinch collars. If you use a head halter (Gentle Leader) you may bring that but also have a flat collar on your dog, please.
Treats: Please bring lots of tiny, soft treats that your dog LOVES (not just likes!). These treats should be something special that will be given to your dog only during training sessions. Diced hot dogs, chicken, steak, cheese, or soft chewy dog treats are all good. They should be about the size of your cheerios – very small and easily carried in a pocket.
Please don't feed your puppy or dog his dinner before coming to class!
