Upcoming Session Begins: Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 5:30pm

Basic Obedience

If you enroll your dog in only one class in its life, make it Basic Obedience. In this class we cover the commands of sit, sit-stay, down, down-stay, loose leash walking, wait, leave it, place and more. More important than the actual commands, owners are taught HOW to teach their dog in a motivational, non-stressful way. Once you learn how to communicate, the sky is the limit! All dogs must be current on vaccines including distemper, rabies and kennel cough.
Upcoming Session Begins: Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 3:30pm, 4:15pm or 6:15pm

Intermediate Obedience - CGC & Therapy Dog Prep

Looking to go beyond Basic Obedience? In this class, we take the basic skills and increase duration, distance and distraction. Emphasis is put on perfecting those skills required to pass the Canine Good Citizen Test and a Therapy Dog Evaluation (using the standards of Therapy Dogs International). The Canine Good Citizen test is offered free of charge on the last meeting of this class. All dogs must be current on vaccines including distemper, rabies and kennel cough.

Outdoor Adventures

This is a fun and interactive class that allows you to put your obedience into a different setting. We will meet at various local parks and attractions, go for a fun walk and work on obedience along the way. This class is drop in only, so you can come one week or every week.

Cost = $5/session

 

The Nose Knows

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to teach your dog to search for, and find things like a professional drug dog? Well now, you can find out! This class will teach you how to teach your dog to find lost items (your keys? The remote?) using the same proven techniques that the instructor(s) use to train Police K9s. Class meets once a week for 4 weeks.

Trick Training

Ok so Fido can sit, down, and stay…But that is not very much fun and certainly not entertaining to show off to your friends. Trick Training focuses on teaching you and your dog the “how to” for learning any behavior. Various behaviors will be taught in class including “Place, “Touch” “Bow” and many more. Bring your suggestions as well! Class meets once a week for 6 weeks.

Tracking

Dogs have a tremendously accurate sense of smell!! Many will naturally track wildlife or family members. Why not teach them how to use that ability in a structured way? Tracking is a wonderful way to build your dog’s confidence, independence and provide mental stimulation. This class will meet outdoors, so dress appropriately for the weather. Class meets once a week for 6 weeks.
