These one hour long clinics are action packed (or information packed) topic- centered classes that are designed to address specific behaviors or problem areas such as: not coming when called, walking on a loose leash, techniques used for fear and aggression, crate training, focus and attention issues, mental stimulation games, agility, basic obedience reliability, etc.

They are held once a month at CHACO’s hub in Tesuque. The day and time can vary month to month. Open to 4 handlers and their dogs.

Pre-requisite: No prior training experienced needed. However, since a group class can be a stressful environment for some dogs, this class is not appropriate for dogs that lunge, bark or snarl at people or other dogs. If your dog suffers from severe fear or aggression consider private training as a great first step before joining a group class.

Required Vaccinations: Rabies, DHLPP (distemper & parvo). Proof of vaccination required. Or titer test results in lieu of DHLPP vaccines.

Trainer: Almudena Ortiz Cué M.A. CTC, CPDT, Tellington TTouch Cert.

NOTE: Almudena will be e-mailing class participants 3 days prior to class meeting with information as what to bring, directions to site etc.

A minimum of 2 people must be signed up (and have paid) for class to run. Sign up closes three days prior to course date.

Fee: $32.10 (Santa Fe county tax included)

June’s Clinic: Thunder phobia can produce mild anxiety in a dog to a full-blown anxiety response.  Since they are many factors that contribute to the thunder- phobic experience -and most of them out of our control, we must at least learn to create  protocols to help our dogs better cope during a storm. When our dogs learn that relaxing is possible in the presence of the storm-related stimuli they learn that a storm is “no-big” deal.

During this presentation, Almudena will address common triggers associated with thunder storms, how best to create a “safe” area for your dog as well as teaching good associations with these common triggers by implementing well thought-out protocols and the use of some interesting tools.
