OUR MISSION:

Enrich the lives of family dogs through active and structured play, exercise, and socialization.

LECA is a daily enrichment program based on Social-Cognitive Learning Theory (SCT) and positive reinforcement. It has been validated by behaviorists, trainers, and veterinarians to help family pets be healthy and happy family members and thrive.

 

We don't train dogs to pass a test or a trial. They never fail and we do not punish. We seek to establish a strong and positive relationship between human and dog. Any aggressive responses or punishments significantly impede our objectives and mission.

Overview Of Our Program

Social

Dogs socialize and play with other dogs under constant, expert supervision to get exercise, build up confidence and have fun.

Tailored

Dogs work individually or in small groups with our professional trainers on Impulse Control, Confidence, Basic Obedience, and Leash Manners. Each dog is an individual and we customize the curriculum for every family.

Challenging

Once a dog can master the basics, we work on advanced skills like Agility, Nose Work, and Enrichment.

The LECA Curriculum

Designed for dogs that benefit and thrive from working with expert handlers.

BEHAVIOR:

Modification

1/

Many dogs struggle with impulse control, reactivity, lack of confidence, and high levels of anxiety or stress. We work with dogs to better deal with their environment.

BASIC:

Obedience

2/

Our basic obedience training introduces and reinforces concepts, like sit, stay, come, down, and drop. We develop a foundation for communication and trust and establish basic rules of appropriate behavior. We generalize these behaviors to empower the dog to deal with greater distances, durations, and a variety of environments.

ADVANCED:

Obedience

3/

We introduce complex environments and develop additional skills like bring it, around, go there, and focused heel.
