(This is an additional session) Focus and Impulse Control (FIC) class will reinforce and build on the obedience and focus exercises learned in STAR Puppy. The skills learned in class will help to solidify your dog’s understanding of these newly learned behaviors. FIC is a great class to take before taking the CGC class, because instructors will encourage teams to sharpen their performance, provide tools to improve impulse control, and inspire a solid commitment between dogs and their handlers and families, which is the key to becoming a good family dog and a Canine Good Citizen.

This class will help teams understand that patience and calm behaviors provide positive learning environments and yields the greatest results. Dogs will learn that focusing on their handler is much more rewarding than focusing on their surrounding environment. This focus work will help the dog control impulse behaviors, such as lunging, barking, and sniffing; and execute commands more quickly and correctly. This class incorporates many games with handlers and dog. No suggested pre-requisites. 6ft non-retractable leash required.
