Beginning Dog Obedience (Dogs 4 months +) Family Members Age 11+ with Paige Tyson. Questions about class content? Call 209.532.6269 Beginning: In this class, your dog is taught to sit, down, stay, come, heel and easy (walking nicely at the end of the leash without pulling). The dog is taught to move freely and easily with the collar, so one day you barely have to use it. The dog is also taught to perform things and to willingly do or not do things, not just be prevented from doing them. Verbal and/ or physical praise from owner is given. This builds a relationship between owner and dog. Any specific problems you are having will be addressed and cured in class or by a lifestyle change at home. You will need a 6 foot leather leash. Instructor will supply the nylon collar. Intermediate: This class will instruct students in off-leash control. This is done with the addition of a 30 foot long line. ALL Dogs must have current rabies and distemper vaccinations. A 6 foot comfortable leash is required. Special nylon choke collar included in fee. Minimum owner age is 11 years old.

Not so! You’ll learn about an exciting, new way to get around the competition and actually turn voice-overs into a thriving full or part-time business! Lisa Foster will discuss the voice-over business as a whole, the numerous opportunities, the incredible income potential, and will discuss the all-important “demo” and how to have it produced. You’ll step up to the mic and do some practice recording, and best of all, you’ll hear the results! NO REFUNDS 7 DAYS PRIOR TO CLASS START DATE.
