The Continuing Education Club
The Continuing Education Club is a fun, flexible way to continue your dog's education after basic training. This class is held in the basement of St Martin's Episcopal Church, located at 1095 E Thacker St, Des Plaines, IL.
To be eligible for the Continuing Education Club, your dog must have graduated from one of the following classes with Happy Hound University: Good Manners 1 and 2, or Puppy 1, 2, and 3 class.
Each week we will work on one of the following categories:
- Manners Refreshers (continued work on polite leash walking, stay, polite greetings etc.)
- Introduction to a new trick (introducing tricks like take a bow, spin, roll over, jump through a hoop, and more)
- Introduction to some fitness basics (pivoting on a platform, rear end awareness exercises)
- Focus and engagement obstacle courses (Each course will offer different challenges to put you and your dog's training to the test!)
Class will be held on Thursdays, alternating between 3:45 PM and 8:00 PM class. Classes can be purchased in packages of 4, 8, or 12, and this class is a "punch card" style class meaning you can choose to attend whichever classes work best with your schedule!
