Foundation Clicker Course - Athens, GA - September 14th, 2020 @ Pet Supplies Plus | Athens | Georgia | United States

COVID-19 Update: Staff will be wearing masks. We will work to maintain social distancing and limit in the extreme interactions between people, teaching from a distance and modeling techniques. Class participants are not mandated to wear masks but may if it is their preference. We may limit class to one person per dog so that social space is easier to maintain. This will be handled on an as needed basis. We will do all we can to meet you where you are. Watch for future updates.

How much does the class cost? The Foundation Clicker Course is $225.

This class is 16 HOURS of instruction for YOU.

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

How often & when will we meet?

We will meet every Monday for 8 weeks from September 14th, 2020 through November 2nd, 2020 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Pet Supplies Plus in the Kroger Complex off Alps Road & Baxter Street.

NOTE: No dogs week 1, No dogs Week 4. On Week 4 we will do an activity that is human only and will blow you away and make you a much, much better partner to your dog in training. It’s fun and great experiential learning.

Things to Bring:

Build your dog’s confidence and self-control in this class.

The Foundation Clicker Course, originally created by Kay Laurence (Learning About Dogs), is a course for you and your dog. It serves as a starting point for any training you will do or as a stand-alone class. We’ll teach you all the skills needed to get the behaviors you want and to get rid of all the behaviors you don’t want. Upon successful completion you will be ready to begin more advanced training. This class will not only show you how to train your dog but also will help you to understand why you do what you do. It will give you a whole new understanding of your dog and the importance of your relationship with him or her.

Class participants are not mandated to wear masks but may if it is their preference. We may limit class to one person per dog so that social space is easier to maintain. This will be handled on an as needed basis. We will do all we can to meet you where you are. Watch for future updates.

How much does the class cost? The Foundation Clicker Course is $225.

This class is 16 HOURS of instruction for YOU.

Why does the ticket price above indicate that it’s free?

We’re leveraging many of the cool features of Eventbrite. But, not their fee collection one. Why? ‘Cause they charge for that. And, we’re trying to keep your costs down by keeping our costs down.

How often & when will we meet?

We will meet every Thursday for 8 weeks from October 22nd, 2020 through December 17th, 2020 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Pet Supplies Plus in the Kroger Complex off Alps Road & Baxter Street. There will be no classes held on November 26th, 2020.

NOTE: No dogs week 1, No dogs Week 4. On Week 4 we will do an activity that is human only and will blow you away and make you a much, much better partner to your dog in training. It’s fun and great experiential learning.

Things to Bring:

Build your dog’s confidence and self-control in this class.

The Foundation Clicker Course, originally created by Kay Laurence (Learning About Dogs), is a course for you and your dog. It serves as a starting point for any training you will do or as a stand-alone class. We’ll teach you all the skills needed to get the behaviors you want and to get rid of all the behaviors you don’t want. Upon successful completion you will be ready to begin more advanced training. This class will not only show you how to train your dog but also will help you to understand why you do what you do. It will give you a whole new understanding of your dog and the importance of your relationship with him or her.
