Open Space Etiquette

In the San Francisco Bay Area, off-leash areas are typically shared with other people, dogs, horses, and abundant wildlife. This short course is designed to help handlers learn how to train and proof behaviors that will enable dogs to behave politely in a multi-use open space area. Focus will be on obedience, environmental and situational awareness, control and management.
