Prerequisite: Family Dog 1 or equivalent, or consent of instructor

Start a new chapter in your dog training journey with Carnival Dog Class!  This entertaining class is a hybrid of agility and tricks so you and your dog will be able to amaze your friends and family with your new accomplishments!

Teach your dog novel skills while working with higher level distractions.   An important part of Carnival Dog Class is teaching your dog to focus solely on you. Your dog will be off leash at times in a fun and safe environment, so learning to not interact with other dogs during class is a skill they will acquire.  Dogs in this class must be friendly with other dogs and people. This isn’t your typical obedience class!

Please bring proof of vaccinations the first week of class.

We recommend at minimum a flat or martingale collar with a 6 foot leash. Sometimes we will suggest the addition of head halters or front hook harnesses, If you need a harness we can sell you one after class. Please no choke or pinch collars, or retractable leashes. We have found that good training with comfortable, non-aversive equipment will enable your dog to perform consistently better!
