Canine Encounters teaches dog owners how to teach their dogs. Classes provide socialization through a group setting and enhances the relationship between owner and dog through the partnership which is developed though training. Communication, positive reinforcement, repetition, consistency, and timing are combined to establish bonding and skills.
The basic command such as sit, stay/wait, down, heel, the recall (come when called), and stand are taught in a positive and fun atmosphere. The goal is not a controlled pet but rather a well mannered, enjoyable and loved companion that is included in our lives.
