observation and participation


Socialization Study Hall, 2012



Are you a visual learner? So is your dog!  + dog believes that observation and participation are equally important to your success in developing an enjoyable, lifelong partnership. That's why we offer several unique ways for you to utilize us as a resource in addition to traditional classes. These one-of-a-kind options are sure to enhance any training program by helping you retain valuable information, refine your training skills and advance your training goals.

audit – the doggie equivalent to TiVo. Free to active traditional class + dog students, here's your chance to observe and review any class you've already participated in, at no additional cost to you. Leave your dog at home, come in, grab a soda and kick back and relax. Watch other + dog students learning the key components you've already started. Ask any follow-up questions you may have… all FREE while enrolled as a + dog student!

study hall – Another creative way to get the most out of training … at a place where the barking won't disturb your neighbors, the distractions (other dogs) are all under control and your trainer is just steps away. These extra-help sessions at + dog are designed to allow active students the opportunity to practice in a safe, structured class environment without the pressures or cost of your traditional classes. Whatever your level, there's a study hall for you – crate, tether or dog bed. Here's your chance to participate in Q & A, observe other students in action and get the most out of your training dollars. This one-of-a-kind option is sure to enhance any training program by helping you retain valuable information, refine your training skills and advance your training goals. After all, practice makes perfect.

watch your dog work – more than just an audit, a great way for + dog day school students and their owners to be pampered simultaneously. Watch a + dog faculty trainer or intern show you the ropes with your very own dog. Observing their proper timing, technique and attitude will help set you and your dog up for maximum success. Then, go implement those same training techniques throughout your daily routine and upcoming classes, you'll enjoy the results!

after-school program –  Another way to increase your education at a reduced cost. Here's your chance to get your paws on all types of dogs and receive class for half price. We believe that all owners benefit from enhanced handling skills and learning how to "think dog." All dogs benefit from successful socialization and positive interactions with people beyond their immediate pack. Come in and take class with a day school dog! This unique program will help you hone your skills as you participate in multi-level classes with a variety of day school dogs — all ages, breeds, temperaments, and levels. It will help your day school dog build up his or her confidence, comfort level, tolerance and adaptability through successful interaction with, and training by, different dog owners who speak the same language as you. Added Bonus: work on your dog's jealous tendencies and have him watch from the sidelines for FREE. Everyone benefits!

Having my puppy remain in a perfect down-stay in the dining room as four adults and two kids hysterically run around outside collecting, securing, and covering items strewn about the acre yard ahead of a surprise, impending downpour, leaving a scrumptious steak dinner beckoning enticingly on the dining room table: Priceless."
