Canine Mindfulness 1 and 2

About our Mindfulness Classes

Canine Mindfulness 1 and 2

If your dog has a hard time focusing and is easily distracted, let Canine Mindfulness take your relationship to the next level. In this class we’ll create a relaxed, ready-to-work energy from your dog, allowing you to enjoy public outings, classes, or even sports with your pup in a way you never imagined. We’ll use the most modern, science-based positive training techniques to get you and your dog into a real “zen” mode that will impress even the most skeptical friend. Canine Mindfulness is right for you and your dog if this describes your dog:

  • Dog gets sniffy often when you’re around other people and/or dogs
  • Attention seems to wander quickly and easily
  • Dog is paying more attention to things going on nearby than to you
  • Dog pays listens to you, but often yawns, licks lips, scratches, “shakes it off”, or won’t make eye contact
  • Barks and/or pulls towards dogs and objects that he is uncertain about, but can be interrupted with a treat before having a full reaction
  • Seems to notice sudden changes in the environment more dramatically than expected, but is able to recover quickly

This class is NOT right for your dog if:

  • Dog seems to be hypervigilant, constantly worrying about what is going on around her
  • Low threshold, always ready to react to a dog or something unusual
  • Has a hard time recovering from a stressful event
  • Dog barks and lunges towards unfamiliar dog, and attention cannot be redirected. Dog pulls so forcefully that the person is in danger of dropping the leash, or being pulled off balance.
