Greyhound Speciality
Congratulations on your very special adoption! Greyhounds are very intelligent, loyal and friendly dogs who thrive on love, attention and human companionship. Especially for Pets recognizes this and that is why we have designed this class to address the specific needs of retired greyhounds. The main goal is to develop a strong bond of trust between pet and owner using positive reinforcement. Our training philosophy is praise, focus and fun! This class will focus on basic obedience as well as some common issues associated with adopted greyhounds. Some of these issues include becoming a pack leader to your dog, socialization including other dog breeds, separation anxiety, sensitivity and how to develop confidence, and navigating the new environment, including stairs. Please, no dogs first class due to discussion length.

Play & Train
This class is a combination of our popular fun playgroup and the skills taught in our more advanced classes. It will be primarily off lead and alternate between play, commands and behavior-based training. We will practice initial control and appropriate greeting when meeting another dog; appropriate and fun play, disengaging from play; and responding to a variety of commands including recalls, attention and stays. It is intended for dogs that already have a working knowledge of basic commands whose handler would like to take the next step to off lead training while giving their dog the opportunity to exercise and play in a safe, indoor environment. Dogs must be non-aggressive and well socialized with other dogs.
