Group Classes


 

At Good Karma Canine we use Reward Based methods of training such as Positive Reinforcement, Clicker Training and Force-Free Training.  This kind of training can sometimes require a high rate of reward so we recommend using treats that are limited ingredient, grain-free and nutritionally sound.

We do encourage dog parents to bring their significant other to attend class, as it is important for the training to be consistent when practiced at home.  However, we require that children under the age of 10 not attend class.  Any child 10 and older that comes to class should be able to participate in the training activities or watch and listen respectfully while the class works.
