Class Descriptions

Attention I  Class w/ Ann Marie Scripko

Rising Star Puppies, Attention I , II and III classes are geared towards building a solid relationship between you and your dog.  I
aim towards teaching active attention for Obedience, Agility or any other sport you wish to do with your dog.  The goal of this
class is to have a solid foundation to build upon for any sport you want to do with your dog.  Our goals are good relationship
with your dog,  where he is attentive to you, ignores distractions at new locations and focuses on staying with you, actively

requires a combination of food , Toys, compulsion and you as the best motivator.  Please note this class is taught with the
goal of achieving High attention and drive for competition dogs, not just pet dog.  Some of the games may cause behaviors
that you would not want for your typical pet dog.  This can include begging for food, jumping on people, tugging that can
build drive and barking.  If any of these are concerns for you, please let me know and we can modify them.  ( it will minimize
the effect)
