Publicly Distracted Training Class

Description:  1-2 lessons
Prerequisite:  Beginner's Obedience

For Dogs who have been trained in minimally distracted environments to have better manners, listen and behave. However, the biggest challenge is that their dog doesn't listen quite as well in public, around other dogs, children, and a lot of distractions.

The Publicly Distracted lessons were created to help you overcome those types of challenges and continue improving your dogs self-control in distracted situations.

The lesson will be held at various parks or public venues.
