This course is designed to help you establish the confidence and knowledge that you need to have a happy, balanced, and obedient dog living amongst your household and out in the real world with distractions. I will help you to become a better handler and communicator with your dog as well as to teach you how to encourage your dog to revolve around and have more focus on you. You both will develop a better level of mutual trust and respect, thus paving the way to establishing pack leadership.
