Spots Available: 19

If you are interested in scheduling a placement test, there are a number of things to be aware of and steps we would recommend following prior to signing up.  There are two components to being ready for class: 1) the dog's skills and understanding of your cues, 2) your understanding of Marin Humane's training theory, terminology, and training exercises.  Before signing up, please watch the 1+ hour long Family Dog 1 Virtual Orientation, practice and do the homework.  The Virtual Orientation LinkVirtual Orientation

You will need to be comfortable with the following concepts:

  • Marker and Release Words - see orientation video
  • The Behavior Triad - see orientation video
  • Find it, Attention, and Orientation back to the handler - see orientation video
  • Wait  - see handouts here:
  • Building duration on stationary behaviors (sit, down, and stand).  See handout for "Down" in the handouts.
  • Moving from front to a side position and polite walking.  See handout for "Walking with Your Dog" in the handouts.

Once you have watched the Virtual Orientation and feel comfortable with the above skills, review Skills Assessment to determine your placement test level.
