Event description


The Big Three!

Come When Called, Walk Politely on Leash, and Say ‘Hi’ Without Jumping

Does your dog need a brush up on the three most challenging (and a most important) canine manners? Would you like your dog to come when called more reliably? Do you want your dog to focus on you more than on everything else when walking on leash? How about greeting – does your dog jump on you or on people he meets?

This three-session workshop starting July 15th ending on July 29th will teach you techniques for achieving your goals and give you time to practice them under the instructor’s supervision. We’ll focus one session on each behavior & weave all the behaviors together during the sessions as well.

As with all Dakin training, we will use positive approaches to achieve your goals. You will learn a variety of techniques to strengthen your dog’s good leash walking, recall, and greeting and strengthen your teaching skills.

This workshop is open to dogs of all ages who have some basic training skills and who are dog and human friendly.

Proof of rabies vaccination is required to register.

Dog Training Program Policies


All dogs must be current on rabies and other vaccinations prior to the starting their first class. Puppies are only required to have their first series of vaccines. You will need to show proof of vaccination at your first class.

Class Cancellations

If the minimum enrollment for a class is not met 2 days before the class, the class may be cancelled. We will contact enrolled participants 2 days before the first session to notify of the cancellation. Paid participants will have the option of enrolling in an alternative class, receiving credit toward a future class, or receiving a full refund.

Refund Policy

We will refund your class fee if you cancel in writing 3 days before the class starts. Enrollments within 3 days of the class are not eligible for refunds for any reason.

A dog that is overly reactive or unruly during class may be asked to leave class, at the trainer’s discretion. Dogs actively in heat may also be asked to leave class. If either of these scenarios were to occur you may have the option to attend a private session, enroll in a later class, or receive a partial refund.

All refund requests must be made in writing & emailed to our office at kbegnoche@dakinhumane.org or by calling us at (413) 781-4000 x 117.
