Things to bring to the second class:

  1. Dog

  2. Toys - 2 identical ones (tennis balls, rope toys, etc.)

  3. Three *full sized* sandwich bags of food, filled to the brim with soft food, cut up into chunks the size of a pea. Chicken, steak, cheese, hot dogs, tortellini, etc. work well. Bring a few different types of food. We will not use all of the food, but I had to make it a policy not to lend food. It won't go to waste anyway since you will be training your dog every day. I prefer soft people food for 2 main reasons:

    • It is healthier than dog treats, which are laden with loads of chemicals and other types of diseased, rancid ingredients

    • Soft food is better so we don't have to waste time waiting for the dog to chew.

  4. And I PROMISE, your dog will NOT get fat! If you are stuck on dog treats, please make sure they are soft and cut up into pea size.

  5. Fanny pack or carpenters nail apron to put food in so your hands are free.

  6. Water bowl

  7. Regular leash (not a retractable one)

  8. Regular collar - no chokes or prongs collars allowed.

Cost is payable the first night in cash or check only.

Due to the small class size, PLEASE let me know in advance if you can't make it for any reason. That way I can let someone in that is on the waiting list.
