EQUIPMENTCanine College is proud to offer balanced training for balanced dogs: our training focuses on positive reinforcement and behavior shaping, with pressure or corrections used only when appropriate and necessary. You will need a good quality (loud) clicker and a bag of small, high-value treats for every training session. We love cut up hot dogs and Red Barn food rolls, but any small, tasty treat will work. (A very food driven dog may work for their kibble, too.)

Please do not feed your dog before class – we want them eager for treats!

On your first visit, please bring your dog using the collar, halter, or harness you currently use. We will make recommendations for other equipment if needed. You will also need a leash. Any material is acceptable and leashes should be about 4ft long, which is a standard length. Please, no retractable (Flexi) leashes!

We also have training equipment & treats for sale!

Tasking for Service Dogs and Scent Detection packages available! Private evaluation required.
