GROUP OBEDIENCE CLASSES
Group Dog classes are a series of lessons where you learn with your dog in class then take the dog home and practice the lessons there and out in real life with your dog.
Group classes offer distractions and the dog and handler learn how to communicate even with people and other dogs around.
Classes are limited in size so each person & their dog can receive personalized attention.
Classes focus on helping your dog and you to understand that unwanted behaviors don’t work, only polite behavior earns rewards.
We use only reward based, positive training. No leash yanking. No choke chains.
We offer a variety of choices from puppy socializing classes and beginner's classes to more advanced dog training.
Beginner's Obedience Class
For dogs two months and older. Teach that dog some manners! We train you, to train your dog. A fun, reward-based series consisting of 6 one hour sessions. Training commands covered: name recognition, sit, down, stay, leave-it, drop-it, wait at street corner, loose-leash walking, socialization on leash (dog to dog introduction) and how to 'read' dog postures & "dog speak". Plus first aid techniques are covered, as well as a few tricks for graduation!
MOVE UP WITH YOUR DOG!
Advanced Obedience Class
Building on work done from the beginner's class, we will work on extended stays and long distance re-calls with bigger distractions and for longer time periods. Improving leash work, beginning to work off leash, go to your bed. Commands like: front & finish, stand, stand stay, drop on recall, back up, move, down in motion will be explored. Good sit and down stays, great recalls and heel work should be in place to really work this class. This class series is designed to move you up to competition levels & prepares you for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.
