“If there were more than 5 Stars, I would award them to Your Dog’s Friend! Their mission to help people and dogs so that dogs don’t end up in shelters is terrific. Their classes with only positive rewards and free workshops are marvelous.”

Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC)™

In-person Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC)™  at our Training Center in Rockville, MD

About this Class:

Is your dog’s behavior great at home, but he’s a punk in the park?

Do you wish your dog would listen, even in distracting situations?

Spent a lot on training classes, but still have an out of control dog?

Train the way real life happens, when treats aren’t always available.  The Connection, Cooperation & Control (CCC)™ training system can help you create the kind of connection and cooperation you want with your exuberant, easily distracted dog. Firmly founded on the principles of Suzanne Clothier’s Relationship Centered Training™, CCC helps you create mutual connection with your dog, while you also develop cheerful cooperation.  After all, what good is training if your dog still tunes you out?

A sit or down stay is recommended, but not required. Choke, prong, or electronic collars will not be allowed in or outside of class. If you have questions, contact the instructor, Marnie Montgomery, at [email protected].
