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.
Next class starting March 5, 2015
Class Description: Is your dog easily distracted, unable to work off lead around other dogs, have difficulty concentrating, unable to control their impulses when excited?
Class Description: Rally offers both the dogs and handlers an experience that is fun and energizing. The canine team moves at their own pace, very similar to rally-style auto racing. Rally was designed with the traditional pet owner in mind, but it can still be very challenging for those who enjoy higher levels of competition.
Monday, March 2nd
All members welcome - $5 per dog.
Run thru a maze, play tic tac toe with your dog, have your dog find the treat in the right box. Lots of fun games to use up some of that extra energy in your dog.
For new students wishing to begin training at advanced levels: Obtain an obedience skills evaluation. Obedience evaluations are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Evaluations are held on a first come, first served basis. No appointment needed.
Puppy Basic Training is a 7 week beginning obedience class for puppies aged 12 weeks to 10 months. Using positive reinforcement to reward the puppy for the behavior we want, we teach the skills of sit, down, loose leash walking, release, impulse control, come, going to a mat or place, body handling, and handler focus. Training questions will focus on the developing adolescent puppy rather than training an adult dog.

This class is for those that want great manners in their home. Building off of the behaviors learned in Basic Training, we continue working on impulse control, going to a mat or place, and body handling. New skills trained are sit for petting, hand touch to move the dog, greeting at the door, games, and exiting the house. This class can be repeated to build the dog’s skills.
