This 7-week course is for dogs over 1 year of age that have not had any formal dog training. We work on learning their name, recalls, sit, down, calmness, building confidence, grit, working while other dogs are near, to be pet, to be brushed, and creating an optimistic dog.

 

We also work on building a relationship with your dog thru attention and focus. While using games and obedience we keep it fun and exciting for our dogs.

BASIC 2 OBEDIENCE CLASS

This 7 week course is for graduates of the Puppy 1 and Puppy 2 Classes. In this class we continue to work on loose leash walking, recalls, sit and down stays, and figure 8 walking.

We will continue to build our Boundaries and work on growing calmness while other dogs work. We start to add in more distractions while the dogs are working and adding distance to our stays and recalls.

We will also learn about new things to do with your dogs such as agility, scent work and tracking.
