Yes. All students, regardless of their background, must attend Orientation first – even professional dog trainers! Orientation covers ground rules for class, what to expect in each Flex Class, the basics of our system of dog training, and how to practice some of the most important exercises.
If you have previously attended our Reactive Recovery classes and are transitioning to Flex Classes, you do not need to attend Orientation – the content is covered in Week 1 of Reactive Recovery.
If you are in any other program – Puppy Day School, Intensive Training Programs, private lessons, etc. – you must attend Orientation before coming to any other classes.
