What else will I need?
Bring your dog and current vaccination records (not just a tag) to the first class proving DHLP-Parvo & Rabies protection. For puppies, bring your receipts or record book showing your most recent round of vaccinations.
A Collar. Your collar may be a slip chain, nylon, cotton, leather or prong - your choice. Pick a collar that fits your dog - not too big or small, long or short. If you like, we will provide you with a properly fitted training collar for just $5. For a puppy, pick a nylon, cotton or leather collar or harness that is adjustable and will "grow" with the pup.
A 6-foot lead, often called a leash. Choose nylon, cotton or leather. Do not bring a metal chain leash. If you like, we will provide you with a nylon lead for just $5. If you are in the Pet Classes, in about a month you will need a 15-foot or longer nylon or cotton lead to help teach your dog to come to you from a distance.
Training treats and a special toy. To reward your dog when they do well. Choose soft (not chewy or hard), pea-sized tidbits that your pup can gulp down quickly.
A water bowl. Tap water is available, but feel free to bring your own water, too.
Dress for the weather. The Lucky Dog Training Building is climate controlled and the arena is a covered, packed-dirt pavilion. Don't wear open-toed sandals to class. Training your dog will be a moderate exercise for you, so be prepared for lots of moving around. Puppy and Pet classes will be inside. Agility classes will be in the arena.
