Puppy/Beginner Obedience
This six-week course is designed for puppies and adult dogs ages 12 weeks and older. Owners and dogs will both be instructed, so that the dog responds to its human family members, not just to the trainer! Included in the curriculum are commands such as sit, down, stay, and come, plus leash walking instruction and even a couple of tricks! Students will also learn how to teach their pets to wait at doorways, how to sit for petting, and how to “leave it!” Our courses are very family-friendly, and older children are encouraged to attend.

 

Impulse Control
This six-week course addresses impulse control issues in dogs, such as pulling towards distractions, not coming when called, counter-surfing, and refusing to leave things that aren’t theirs. Strong emphasis is put on offered behaviors, teaching the dog to make good decisions without being asked. Come, leave it, stay, 
and settle are delved into more deeply, through the use of new, innovative exercises. Prerequisite: beginner obedience or equivalent skills.

 

Game Night
 This BRAND NEW one-night-only class is designed for dog owners who want to have fun and bond with their dogs while playing games that reinforce obedience! Games will include commands like sit, down, stay, and come, plus distance work, leash walking, and food distractions. Each Game Night will feature different games, relay races, and connection courses. The games chosen will strengthen obedience while teaching owners to effectively divide their attention while training.

Prior group training is recommended, but the only thing required is the ability to laugh at yourself!
