Here is a list of what will be offered in the next sessions for obedience classes. Look at individual class descriptions to find class requirements, times offered and class fees. 


Impulse Control - new classes starting Wednesday Oct 14 & Tuesday - Oct 20 - 9:30am

Designed for dogs who want what they see and they want it now! The class will teach dogs to leave and ignore all sorts of distractions and check in with their handler rather than go for whatever they see.  Skills taught are sit and down stay, leave it, attention to handler, polite greeting of people, loose leash walking around distractions, staying on a mat or place, and control play.  This class is for dogs that lack self control, not for reactive dogs.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head

Tricks - New class starting Monday - October 19 - 7pm

Teach that dog some new tricks!  Many of the skills taught in this class may be very useful such as park it (sitting between your feet) or putting their toys in a box but mostly, this class is just about having some fun! Tricks your dog can learn include waving a paw, licking their lips, weaving through your legs, and balancing a treat on their nose until you release them. Class size is limited to 8 students.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head

Loose Leash Walking - new classes starting Monday - October 19 - 5:50pm & Tuesday - October 20 - 10:45am

This class is all about training your dog to stop dragging you down the street and to walk politely on leash.  Since all dogs, like people, learn in different ways, each week a different method of teaching loose leash walking is taught with lots of practice ignoring and walking by distractions. The final week involves practicing as a group in an outdoor setting close to TCOTC.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head
