Basic Obedience

COURSE OVERVIEW
Basic Obedience is a 6-week series class designed to teach your dog the basic obedience skills necessary for living peacefully with us and for participation in dog sports like agility, competitive obedience, rally, and canine freestyle. We will work on attention, sit, down, stay, heel, and coming when called. We will play fun games to keep your dogs engaged!

This class teaches the foundations of obedience training, which makes it a great class for owners who are new to clicker training (or any training, for that matter!) and for dogs that are getting settled in a new home and could use a refresher on their manners (or who may not have had any training previously).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Please be sure each week to bring poop bags, a soft mat or rug, long-lasting chews or stuffed Kongs and plenty of small, soft treats for your dog.

IF YOUR DOG BARKS, GROWLS, OR IS AGGRESSIVE TO PEOPLE OR DOGS, YOUR DOG IS NOT YET ELIGIBLE FOR GROUP CLASSES.
