Dog Training

You must read, understand and be willing to abide by the Gold Star Dog Training Policies before registering.  See link below, under "Additional Forms & Files", for the policies.

NOTE:
   Dogs do not attend the first class.
   There are two options for registration- to attend with or without a dog (see below)
   At this time, due to COVID, only 1 (one) person is permitted to attend the class with each dog.
   You must read, understand and be willing to abide by the Gold Star Dog Training Policies before registering.  See link below to the policies.
   Pre-requisite- To take the Beyond Program the Basic Program has to be taken with Gold Star or Instructor approval.

The 5 week course continues to build a foundation of manners, training, and social skills that were started in the basic course, working on making responses to commands consistent and reliable.

You will continue to hone your handling skills: timing, consistency, reading your dog, understanding the training techniques and how to apply them.  You and your dog will have lots of opportunity to practice through carefully-constructed exercises. 


Registration Options:
   Option 1: Register with your dog
     This registration option reserves a spot in class for one dog and one person.  Due to covid, there can only be one person in attendance with each dog.  This is to maintain a safe number of people in the class space.  Exceptions cannot be made at this time, sorry.  Additional family members are permitted to attend the orientation evening, the first night of class, dogs stay home that night.  

   Option 2:  Register without a dog
     This registration is for anyone who would like to attend the class without a dog. Only one person per registration due to covid.


Instructor: Deb Helfrich
    Bio: Deb is the owner of Gold Star Dog Training LLC, based in Fairfax, VT. She enjoys working with dogs and their handlers to solve their challenges, build a healthy dog-handler relationship, and achieve their training goals. She is highly student-focused, adept at explaining concepts, helping every student feel successful, and creating training experiences that are meaningful and effective. Deb’s sense of humor, enthusiastic teaching style, and ability to work with a wide range of students are what clients seem to like about her.


Benefits of attending class without a Dog:  
   Access to Gold Star Dog Training's effective, easy-to-follow training program: Training materials, weekly step-by-step training guides, exercises, and videos. 
   Instructor support: To help you learn the techniques and answer questions.  
   Not having to delay your training if your pup is too young or you don't have a dog yet.  
   Maybe your dog isn't a good candidate for a group class: fearful, reactive, or out-of-control dogs need basic training just as much (if not more!), but sometimes aren't ready to join a group class.  This allows you to work on your dog in the comfort and safety of his or her own home, with full training support.
