You're at a company picnic. Kids are running around, people are grilling hamburgers, and your brand-new puppy Red, who doesn't yet know how to walk on a leash, is asleep on your lap. Suddenly your boss's dog steals a hamburger and takes off. Your boss runs after the dog to tell him what a bad dog he is. When your boss finally returns without his dog (not to mention the hamburger), he says, "I took Blackie to obedience class, but I guess he forgot what he learned."
But Blackie’s memory is fine. And he did learn the basics. He just didn't learn them in Jump-Start. Blackie was taken to a traditional "classroom"-style obedience class, and he did well. But since the class had no "real life" challenges, Blackie knows how to behave in a classroom, but doesn't have a clue how to behave everywhere else.
is where you and Red learn the skills that will translate into good behavior wherever you go—on the street, in the park, at your in-laws' house. Using fun games, foundation agility equipment, and an upbeat attitude, we'll show you how to communicate with Red so that he will become the kind of well-behaved dog welcome anywhere. Not only will Red be invited to future company picnics, he well may be everyone's favorite guest!
