This class is specifically for pups under 6 months of age. Puppies must have their second series of immunizations. Let’s get your puppy started on the right track! Learn techniques to bond with your puppy from the very beginning. Accurately read their body language and communicate in “puppy” language. Good eye contact and a solid recall are foundational to building a strong relationship of trust with your puppy. They are little sponges eager to learn. Along with basic obedience commands, I will guide you in connecting with your new puppy and building easy, fun, structured training sessions to enhance your bond.
This class is for dogs 6 months and older. The basic class emphasizes the essential training commands needed to have a great family dog: sit, down, stay in position, leave it, recall, walking on a loose leash, etc. These basic skills are important in keeping your dog safe.
Taking basic obedience a step further, your dog will learn how to down-stay at a distance, listening to commands in groups of dogs, etc. At the end of the course, your dog will know the commands and exercises needed for a Canine Good Citizen certification – an AKC certification program designed to reward dogs that have good manners at home and in the community.
Rally for FUN
Rally uses basic obedience moves to navigate a course laid out with signs. Each sign represents a basic command and when used in combination can mimic real life. Some examples of commands written on signs include moving down, zig-zag walk, side step right, fast walk, slow walk, sit-stay, down, recall, etc. It’s a great way to connect with your dog and learn each other’s body language. If you are interested in competing, this is not the class for you.
