Out and About
For dogs that can do sits, downs, stays and walk politely at home and in the training room, but when you go somewhere new your dog seems to have forgotten everything. Dogs need to repeat the basics in many different situations before they can generalize behaviors they have learned. We’ll meet in a variety of dog friendly environments to teach your dog they can do their sits, downs and walk politely anywhere.

It will lift, tone and sculpt as well as strengthen core muscles. Exercises may be done standing at a barre (if needed based on location we use a chair instead of a barre) or standing free on the floor to enhance balance. Some exercises may be done lying on the floor. You’ll see graceful moves across the floor, small range and large range movements, ab-work, arm work and leg work - no part of the body goes untouched. This is a dance class.
