Treat/Retreat Classes

The world can be a scary place for shy dogs – there are people everywhere! Does your dog hesitate to approach new people? Need time to warm up if guests come over? Sometimes growl at strangers when approached? This is the class for you and your dog

Treat/Retreat is a gentle, effective technique that helps socially fearful dogs build their confidence and skill. Developed by internationally respected trainer Suzanne Clothier in the early 1990s, Treat/Retreat has helped thousands of shy dogs around the world.

All dogs will be worked with individually to insure careful attention to each dog’s needs. When not working with their own dogs, students will be helping other dogs.

Students and their dogs will learn:

  • Reading canine body language
  • Safe & unsafe zones
  • Letting the dog set the pace
  • Effective use of food rewards
  • Techniques for practice at home

Includes access to the Treat/Retreat webinar prior to the class.

Join us for a life changing class where understanding, support and carefully built skills can make a world of difference for your dog.

LIMITED TO 6 dog/handler teams, and 25 auditors.

This class meets for 6 sessions, beginning Nov 5, 2022.

NOTE: There are 2 classes – one at 10 AM, another at 4 PM.
