Obedience Handler Courses use Nature’s K9 Language to communicate pressure-release/spatial authority. How LRH’s Obedience Handler Courses are different than any other obedience class:

  • We provide the dogs to introduce Nature’s K9 Language. This allows you to FEEL how a responsive dog works and UNDERSTAND how to communicate with a truly trained dog.
  • We do not use treats, clickers, prong collars, or shock (remote/e-collar) collars.
  • We teach you how to work with a dog through reading the dog’s body language and engaging its mind and heart.
  • Once you understand the communication, work with one of our 2nd Phase Rescue Dogs or work with your dog! All outside dogs must have shot records that include: Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, K9 Hepatitis, Recently Wormed.

Basic Obedience Handler Clinic:  4 hrs      $99/person
Come learn dog language from our Master Dogs and expert Instructors!  This is a fun way to learn Nature’s K9 Language and speak with fluent Master dogs!
