Barb Forgash has 35+ years of dog training experience. Barb will be teaching 2 classes Puppy Kindergarden (puppies under 6 months of age) blended with Basic Home Obedience (dogs over 6 months) from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm. In addtion to basic skills (including attention, controlled walking, sit, stand, down, come when called, socialization, and distraction work) , we introduce hand signals, bar/brood/high jumping. The praise method is utilized by a teacher with extensive experience. Professional pictures and graduation complete with mortarboards are included. There are lots of wagging tails; a good time is had for the handler & pup! Individual concerns are covered, as well as suggestions for appropriate animal care.
Intermediate level classes are designed for dogs who have successfully completed a dog class through the Village of Wellington, or upon teacher recommendation. The content of this program expands developement of techniques and skills covered in basic, plus off-leash work and use of advance hand signals, jumping, and drills.
Both courses are designed for the average pet owner, as well as those with interest in possible obedience competitions.
