Obedience Classes Offered

Basic Pet Obedience Using reward based training, owners will learn ways to teach their dogs to; pay attention, come when called, walk on a loose leash, introduction to heeling, leave something alone, drop something out of their mouth, sit, down, and work on understanding of stay. Basic grooming skills will be talked about in class.

Canine Good Citizen Preparation/Obedience Through games and rewards, owners will learn how to train more formal obedience skills such as heeling and stays. This class will incorporate skills required for Rally Obedience, CGC evaluation and pet therapy. Basic Obedience skills are a pre requisite. Shaping behavior is encouraged.

Trick Classes Through games and rewards, owners will learn how to teach fun tricks.  Many of the tricks double as physical fitness exercises, conditioning exercises and agility foundation skills.  Others are just for fun.  These tricks can be used for AKC CGC Trick Dog Titles.  Shaping behavior is strongly encouraged.
