Dog Training Workshops
Training Tuesday is a no commitment, once a week group training workshop. It starts at 6:30pm and lasts approximately 50 minutes. Every week a new topic is covered! With this training option, you can choose to attend all workshops for that month or you can pick and choose which skills you would like your dog to work on the most.
Topics currently covered are as follows:
Leash Walking: This workshop will show you how to teach your dog basic leash manners; it all starts with communication!
- Recall: Teach your dog to come to you when called and know how to properly handle the situation when they do not listen on or off leash.
- Stay: Teach your dog a real life “stay” for everyday use; not just for obedience. This is very useful when you are not physically able to watch your dog but need them to remain in a spot until released.
- Leave it: Teach your dogs to leave items alone when you ask them to (even when your back is turned)!
Greymont Academy’s Day School program invites canine students to spend the day on the Greymont campus with our trained faculty. The program is designed to teach dogs how to communicate with other dogs and with people in a fun and engaging environment. We also focus on developing:
- Dog language skills
- Dog and human socialization
- Problem solving skills
Prior to enrollment, our trained staff provides a full evaluation of each dog to assess key personality traits, from temperament to play style. Following the full evaluation, owners receive feedback explaining dog personality traits, temperaments, and play styles. This information often proves useful at home and is also used by our trainers to create a customized regimen for each dog.
