Core Competencies

After years of studying dogs and humans with their dogs, we’ve determined there is a handful of basic criteria that dogs need to know to be well-balanced and able to adjust quickly to what life brings. By focusing on communication building, pranaDOGS provides classes and private lessons on the Core Competencies and beyond.

This critical cue can be the difference between off and on leash walks, where you walk and the quality of your walks. In this training we strive for a happy, rapid recall through different situations up to 25′.

Dog’s reacting to other dogs is a common problem and one that can cause a lot of frustration in your relationship, but there are solutions. In this training we practice those solutions in different settings and with different dogs present.
