Fear Class (1): Fireworks, Gunfire & Thunder [6 weeks outdoor course]
Open To: All Breeds & Mixed Breeds
Dates: May 21st, 28th and June 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th
Time: 7-8 pm
Location: At our Country Clips Location. This course is taught outside. Please dress accordingly for weather for that day!
What to expect: It is impossible for society to control all of the potential stimulants which may cause fear in your dog. It is however, in your control to ensure your dog has the best opportunity to learn to be calm and relaxed when faced with stimulants such as fireworks, gunfire and thunder.
This class is for dogs who are fearful of fireworks, gunfire or thunder. If you have a dog that shows signs of anxiety, fear, reactivity, etc. at the sound of fireworks, gunfire and/or thunder, this class is for you! You will learn the skills necessary to train your dog to be calm and relaxed instead of fearful when fireworks, gunfire or thunder is present.
This IS NOT an intro to fireworks, gunfire, or thunder course which is for dogs that do not already have an established fear (there is another course for that!). This course IS for dogs who already have fear responses to fireworks, gunfire and/or thunder.
Prerequisite: You must be physically capable of controlling your dog at all times. If you have any physical ailments that prohibit you from being able to maintain complete control over your dog this class will not work for you. Your dog must also be completely healthy with no physical ailments (example: no hip issues, back issues, breathing issues, etc.).
What to Bring: You will need a flat buckle collar and a 6ft leash. You will also need high value treats. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing with sturdy footing.
Note: This class will meet only when weather permits. We will reschedule by adding on another class the following week on the same day at the same time, if we must reschedule due to weather.
