Spring Training Classes

Foundations for Fun

Foundations for Fun is $125 and includes five sessions with your dog, training handouts, email support and membership in a private Foundations for Fun Facebook group with video tutorials.

Foundations for Fun is not your standard, basic obedience class. Don’t worry, we will cover the basics like sit, come when called, how to walk nicely on a leash and others but the focus will be on equipping you with the underlying skills needed to begin teaching your dog things you can use outside of the classroom in the real world.

Classes will be from 2:00pm – 3:00pm on Sundays.  The next series of classes will be

May 17, NO CLASS MAY 24, May 31, June 7, June 14 and June 21.

**This class is full.  Be looking for another series to start in July!

Total Recall

Total Recall is being offered as a virtual class at a one time special price of $35.  If you are a returning student who has taken either “Come Here” or “Foundations for Fun” in the past, and you just want to brush up on your recall, you can sign up for this class for just $30. This class is normally offered for $75 and includes video support, handouts, and three, Zoom class sessions with your dog.  

Would you like to teach your dog to come running when you call her?  Then Total Recall is the class for you!  This class will help  you build a rock solid recall, or take your recall to the next level. This class is perfect for newcomers, or anyone wanting to work on a new recall.

Virtual classes can be a great option for many reasons.  During this unique time we are currently living in, they are awesome for helping us practice social distancing.  But really, virtual lessons and classes can be a great option any time!  With virtual lessons, recordings of class are general available for a period of time after class so you can review the lesson, dogs who have challenges around new people or other dogs may do better working in their own homes, and you can wear your pajamas and no one will judge!  Those are just a few things that make virtual training a great option for many.  If you are interested in seeing how virtual training works, and you’d like to work on teaching your dog to come back reliably when you call, don’t wait to sign up for this class!  It likely won’t be coming around again at this price!

Total Recall will be held on Wednesdays, May 20, 27 and June 3rd at 7:00pm.

Are you ready to start having more fun with your dog?  Here’s how it works…..

  1.  To register, follow  this link and select  the service of your choice from the drop-down menu.
  2. Drop Your Jaws Dog Training will email you a confirmation email within two business days (if you do not receive an email within 48 hours, make sure to check your junk mail).  The email will contain a little more information about classes including any supplies you will need,  and information for how to pay online.

Dogs participating in the in person group classes need to be at least sixteen weeks old and fully up to date on vaccinations including Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus and Bordetella and you must provide documentation from your veterinarian of your dog’s vaccinations prior to starting class.

In person group classes are great for lots of dogs but they are not the best fit for all dogs. If you or your dog react in an overly excited way to other dogs or people, or have a known history of acting aggressively, please do not sign up for an in-person group class. Just a few examples of what I mean by “overly excited” would be repeated barking, lunging or growling. Some dogs do better in private sessions at least to start. If you are unsure about which training option is right for you, contact me and I’m happy to talk with you about it. For the safety of clients and their dogs, dogs who are displaying aggressive or overly reactive behaviors are not allowed in class.

Drop Your Jaws Dog Training is excited to be offering in person classes and seminars at Deer Creek Doggie Day Camp!  You must register for classes through Drop Your Jaws Dog Training via the link provided above, but make sure to visit Deer Creek Doggie Day Camp’s website to learn about all the services they offer!
