The Importance of a Reliable Recall
oes your dog ignore you when you call him? Do you find yourself yelling ” come” over and over again as you chase him around the dog park. If you answered yes to these questions our “Come when Called” class is just for you.
This class will help you call your dog away from distractions, help you build your relationship with your dog and in general make you proud of your dog. Invest in your dog’s safety and teach him to “Come when Called”. Reactive dogs are not suitable for this class.
PLEASE bring a family member or friend to assist you with the training. Many of the training exercises are done with an assistant. If there is the odd session when someone cannot attend with you, the trainer will help assist.
This class will be held mainly OUTDOORS so please dress accordingly. Please bring a long line to all classes approximately 15-20 feet in length. No Flexi-leads.

Positive Training Methodology
TNT Training teaches using positive reinforcement and motivational methods. To help your dog understand what we are trying to teach them, we use food rewards. This method of teaching is proven to accelerate the learning process for dogs. The alternative to positive training, is to use compulsion and adversive methods and this type of training is not only old-fashioned and highly outdated, but also produces dogs that work out of fear and not because they “want” to. At TNT we want both yourselves AND your dogs to enjoy the learning and training process.
