This class is suitable for newly adopted dogs for preventative training as well as for dogs that display boredom behaviors or exhibit stress when their owners leave the room or walk out the door.
The class will help owners train Fido that being home alone is a good thing by increasing mental stimulation and providing a healthy alone time routine.
