Something NEW to look forward to: We are planning to add a new class to our schedule! Club member Mindy Costanza, for those who haven't had the opportunity to meet yet, is an accomplished competitor and instructor. Mindy will be teaching a class on Thursdays from 12:00 - 1:00. Again, we had hoped to start up in a week or two but will put this on hold until we are able to confirm a start date. In this meantime, this will be the class description:
RX FOR HEELING
Communication is a key to training your dog. Heeling will be broken down into parts. Topics to be covered include: Learning how to make body language and cues clear to your dog. Keeping your dog's focus Understanding what heel means for both you and your dog. Diagnosing if you are aiding your dog to the point of lack of performance. The use of food in training. We will also work on transitioning to off leash heeling. This class is designed to make you think.
We are so excited to add this class to our roster. I hope when the time is right you'll be able to join Mindy in what is sure to be an interesting and informative class!
Please take care, stay well, and I hope to be seeing all of you in the not too distant future!
