Train Your Pup’s canine enrichment courses provide a fun and energetic twist on traditional dog training classes for the greater Dayton and Cincinnati areas.
The goal of the enrichment courses is to increase communication between owner and dog in a challenging environment. Owners and dogs will participate in a variety of positive activities that will be both mentally and physically stimulating. Each class will focus on the cooperation between dogs and handlers in a different activity or game.
These fun indoor activities will assist owners with timing and identifying/marking good behaviors. We recommend always wearing comfortable attire because there is no standing around in this course.
Enrichment courses are available to any Train Your Pup student. If you have never taken a training with Train Your Pup contact us for the recommended course.
A few things you might do during enrichment courses:
A major complaint among students is that many agility classes are too slow. We will be utilizing circuit training to work on impulse control and to minimize downtime. Both you and your dog will be tired after class!
Strength and Balance Day
During this class, we will be doing a variety of activities focusing on body awareness, strength, and conditioning. FitPAWS and a treadmill will be used.
This class will have a variety of activities that focus on stays with distractions and various physical obstacles.
This class is all about focusing on cute activities to make your dog a star. We will learn things like: going to a mark, holding objects, and posing for pictures.
Chaining Behavior Training
This type of training is very useful with difficult activities. Owners will have the freedom to choose a fun activity to learn.
This will be a super fun and entertaining day for sure! Owners will “swap” dogs and have to do simple activities. This will help each handler to develop the resources to solve problems on their own and implement training techniques. The dogs will also learn how to take direction from more than one handler.
Teach Your Pup to Strike a Pose!
One of the most exciting activities for owners is teaching their dog to pose for the camera. Here at Train Your Pup, we bring in a professional photographer every 2 months for pictures, and we also schedule outdoor shoots during warmer months. Every photo is taken by Julie Reynolds Photography.
