“By attending “C.H.A.C.O Dog Training & Behavior Consulting LLC” classes we learned a lot and so did our standard poodle Dash. Almudena has a first-class facility with a large field for classes, within a larger securely fenced area that readily adapts to the wide range of activities she incorporates in her teaching. She is a personable and caring individual as well as a very knowledgeable professional totally committed to helping owners and their dogs.
The classes are usually small, 4 owners with their dogs, which allows some one-on-one time with Almudena when needed, and the classes are nonthreatening and fun for the dog. With her extensive knowledge, she is able to address any special problems encountered. For example, our dog had spent the first nine months of his life in a kennel being mostly ignored. Almudena really helped socialize Dash and he’s become a confident, happy dog, who likes to play and he enjoys the company of other dogs and people.” – Robb & Kate Palmer, Tesuque, NM
From participants of the Developing the Confident Dog class.
“Thanks so much for the excellent recall class that Roxie and I attended. I really enjoyed it. You teach important concepts in interesting ways, and your class is a very different experience than other classes I have taken over the years. It was very helpful and thought provoking.” – Patty Sciarrotta & Roxie
Playing and Teaching Boundary Games
3 spots left!
Registration closes Wed. March 31st at 5 pm or when class is full.
A boundary can be anything that signals to your dog that it must remain on it until released by you. Some typical boundaries can be a bed, a log found on a walk, a towel at a cafe. Most folks struggle with having their dog avoid certain things when being walked off-leash, at home, when the doorbell rings, or guests show up at our door. Teaching and practicing boundary games makes it worth it to the dog to stay in place versus running amok to say “hi,” chasing a bicycle, or charging at the front door just as soon as the doorbell rings!
The class will be held outside in a secure, fenced-in area and with ample room to make social distancing possible. The use of COVID-related masks will remain optional.
