Fundamentals – This is our 6 week basic obedience class where you and your dog will learn how to work as a team. We’ll go over basic learning theory, how it applies to dog training, and how to integrate what you learn in class to your daily routine so training isn’t a chore; it’s just a simple part of life. “Fundamental” behaviors “sit”, “down”, “stay”, loose leash walking, “leave it”, hand targeting or “touch”, recall to their name, and polite greetings without jumping on people will be covered. Have a new dog you just adopted? Have a dog that knows how to sit and stay at home but when you step out the front door they seems to forget what you think they should know? Have an older puppy that now needs to learn adult manners? Want to have a solid training foundation to move on to more advanced training in the future? This class is for you! Open to dogs 5 months and older. First week is a mandatory human-only orientation.
$165 maximum 6 teams
Canine Good Citizen Prep – Already know the “Fundamentals” and ready to test you and your dog’s skills? This 5 week class will go over all 10 of the test points in the AKC Canine Good Citizen test
We will also work on reducing the amount of reinforcers your dog needs to perform and increasing distractions. For the test, you will not be allowed to have food or toys on you so this is an important component to this class and not a subject that other training schools spend much time on.
$140 maximum 6 teams – requires instructor approval for registration. There will be a CGC ( test date TBD ) for teams that are ready to be tested and will also be open to the general public $15 fee per entry. Owners wanting to register but needing trainer approval should see our staff to schedule an appointment
