About Our Classes
Classes are taught using positive reinforcement, the reward-based method using food as the reward. We want you to be sure our classes fit your needs. If you are unsure if a class is right for you or your dog, we are happy to speak with you or arrange a visit.
We Use the SMART Technique
|S -> SEE (the desired behavior) |
M -> Mark (Clicker or Verbal Marker - to let the dog know that is the behavior you liked)
A -> And
R -> Reinforce/Reward (Give your dog their reward)
T -> Training
What to Bring to Class
- Leash : 6 ft standard flat leads, (PLEASE No Chain or NO Flexi leashes on premise)
- Collars: Flat collar (quick release or buckle) or Martingale, (limited slip) or Harness
- Small soft treats in pea size pieces (some easy to swallow treats work best - cheese, hot dogs, etc.)
Class Policies: C&C SouthFork Acres
For reasons of safety, we do not allow a single handler to bring multiple dogs to class without prior permission. If you have multiple dogs enrolled in the class, please ensure that you have multiple handlers—one for each dog.
