We will continue to focus on walking on a leash, building strong connections for a coming when called and teaching duration of behaviors amid a wide variety of settings. Handlers will learn to observe their dog’s behaviors and understand how to change either their teaching or the environment to allow the dog to learn with a strong foundation. Our goal is to teach behaviors that are strong, yet flexible.

**CANCELLED**Connected Walking: Saturday, December 19 – January 9 *4 weeks* @ 10:30 am with Sue McGuire

Connected Walking Date: Saturday, December 19 – January 9 *4 weeks* Time: 10:30 – 11:30 am Address: 5345 Highway 12 West, Santa Rosa 95407 Connection with our dogs is at the root of a pleasant walk and loss of that connection often creates unpleasant experiences. This class series is for people who are searching for a way to experience one of the most enriching parts of sharing life with a dog. While walking our dog is a mandatory part of living with a dog, often times what humans want and what dogs want from a walk can be in conflict. It need not be that way, if we take a closer look at the whole business of walking with our dogs and what foundation skills might be needed. Four weeks: First class is orientation without dogs. Participants will be provided supporting materials and a video presentation prior to the first class with dogs. Pre-requisite: Basic
