*Note New Start Time for Afternoon Class*

The Workshops have been running successfully indoors at the Animal Inn Training Center in Lake Elmo and we will be wrapping up indoor classes on May 16th. As we welcome Spring and Summer, our next outdoor dates are June 19th, July 17th, August 21th and September 11th at our outdoor location, Legion Park, 14521 Granada Drive, Apple Valley. At this time the Legion will be open but you must use the side door if you enter.

We are going to practice Social Distancing. You will be tested for a temperature before being allowed to register. A temperature of 100* or higher will be our threshold. If someone is sick at home, STAY HOME. We’re doing this for the betterment of the wonderful dogs and do not want to become contaminated for trying to “do goodness”.

Once your temperature has been verified you will be directed to a table with waivers to sign, a jar for your money, (bring 30.00 cash for one dog or class or 45.00 cash for two dogs or a second class), and a sign-in sheet that you will have to fill out yourself. Making the email very easy to read assures you’ll be on the monthly notifications of upcoming events. We aresuggesting masks be worn and gloves for this portion.

Once signed in you’ll have to have your own chair, umbrella, water or any other items you may need. Remember your poop bags! We’ll be there rain or shine unless there’s the threat of lightening.

We’ll practice 10’ rule on our spacing. If we have more than twenty people in our group we may have to split the group.

We will only use our own dogs for demos as there will be no touching of your dogs by us. Please have your own sanitizer.

The day will begin promptly at 10 am lecture whether you’re seated or not as time will be tight. After the lecture ends at 11 we’ll take a very short potty break for the dogs and do the hands-on class until 12pm. There will be Q&A for personal issues until 12:15.

The afternoon activity class will begin at 12:30 pm. This summer we’ll expandthe owner’s and dog’s obedience lessons that include low jumping on command including proofing a retrieve utilizing a set of treats and targeting. The second part of the session we’ll work on off-leash heeling. The last part of the class will be devoted to work on dominance rather than obedience, how you can control your dog without commands. It’s a fun concept that works!

If anyone has any other issues they’d like to work on or any clarification just contact me at;

Hope to see lots of old and new friends!!!

Workshop Details

The purpose of these workshops is to introduce you to the other local German Shepherd owners in a relaxed environment while improving socialization/obedience skills and knowledge. Students of all levels are welcome. Come learn unique training techniques that increase your demonstrated performance each month. Students will have fun training with ideas that they learn at the workshop and practice during the month. Your dog will be wagging its tail as it learns to work with you as the pack leader as a team. This is a positive and confidence building training for your GSD. This will provide more thought provoking techniques that will make training your best friend easier. You will develop into a happier and better behaved team at your leisure activities or competing in the ring.

For the pet owners, learn ideas that make owning a GSD a pleasure and not a stressful day in the park. Learn why GSD’s are considered such a smart breed and bring out the best in your pet.

Issues such as controlled barking, being a responsible GSD owner, having better control in daily activities and your personal issues are worked on each month. Learn to walk in control of your GSD responsibly and leave no doubt in your dog’s mind that you are the pack leader.

Enjoy getting out with our Group Walks, to proof your dog in real life situations, and join the Demo Team, seen below in past videos, at the State Fair for even more pet friendly fun!
