Ditch the treat

Have you done some basic training with your dog? Will your dog only recall if they can see that you’ve got a treat in your hand?

This class does not focuses on teaching you the skills necessary to remove treats from your body for a selection of the behaviours crucial to a happy life with a pet dog.
