Equipment Needed:

1. SHOES - Please wear only flat, closed toe, closed heel shoes to class with a rubber sole (such as gym shoes)

2.  LEASH – 4-6 ft long leather or nylon leash required (no chain leashes)…larger dogs should have thicker leashes. Absolutely no retractable leashes allowed at K9TS.

3. TREATS -

  • Use your best judgment in choosing treats for your dog.
  • Try new treats out prior to class in small amounts to ensure treats agree with your dog and that he likes them.
  • Reserve an extra special treat for class that your dog does not get at home. (hot dogs are great!)
  • Bring two types of treats to class for variety. It is best to bring moist/chewy treats.
  • Bring plenty of treats cut into tiny pieces. It’s better to go home with leftovers than to run out in class.
  • For optimal training results, it's best to not feed your dog for at least 5 hours before class.

4. POOP BAGS - Participants are required to clean up after their dogs both inside and outside of facility. Please have your dog eliminate immediately before entering the training facility. Car rides are exciting for most dogs so even if your dog emptied at home, it is best to let him eliminate again before entering the building.

5. DOG BOWL/TRAVEL BOWL and WATER
