Below are some of our other class offerings held in the fall and/or winter months. Be sure to check back for future registration or email training@arlgp.org to be placed on our notification list.

ELATED ENRICHMENT

Elated Enrichment is one of those secrets that everybody knows but nobody is really talking about and exploring. When we begin to bring more enrichment in our dog’s life, the rewards for us and them are endless. During a 5-week period we will explore basic dog psychology: sound, food, scent, and sight enrichment. We also discuss and explore how a safe environment, natural behaviors, companionship, and bonding effect enrichment. Come join us and explore ways to help bring further enrichment to your dog’s life. This class is for dogs that have taken some type of group class before, dogs that are highly reactive should email us to ensure this is the class for them.

COMMUNITY CANINE

Have you taken classes before and your dog does well but you wish he behaved better in REAL LIFE? Or perhaps you’re just looking to improve your dog’s skills or take a fun, different class – if so you will want to check out community canine! In this fun class we meet at different parks and other public, outdoor dog friendly environments and practice training out in the world you live in!

Learn how to compete with distracting environments for your dog’s attention and how to seamlessly transition your classroom skills to the outside world! Training locations vary but range from Portland area to Brunswick area.

Discover new locations to play, walk and train with your dog and most of all just have FUN with your dog! For the safety of all students dogs taking community canine should have completed previous classes at ARLGP or with Problem Solved Training.

CLICKER TRAINING: FOUNDATIONS (VIRTUAL CLASS)

Due to a high volume of requests, we will be holding our Clicker Training: Foundations course via Zoom. We saw amazing results when we moved this class to the Zoom platform last spring. This is a great class for community members who are not participating in group gatherings at this time, as well as for people who are unsure how your dog will handle a group class setting. You can still get the skills you and your dog need without the high level of distractions found in a group class. We will all meet virtually once a week where you will be given instructions following the foundations syllabus, demonstrations, feedback as you and your dog practice, and handouts to help with your home activities for the week. Must have reliable internet and a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and microphone. Smart phones work too.

Upcoming session: TBD
Age group: 6 months and up
