Does your dog need basic manners training? This is the perfect place to start for most dogs who have little to no previous formal training. **Adult Dog Obedience is not for dogs who bark, lunge, growl, snap, or show any other aggressive or vocal behaviors to other dogs on-leash. If your dog does these things, please contact us for private sessions at [email protected]**
Our Adult Dog Obedience Classes are split into three different levels, which all focus on a different handful of topics. Throughout this three part series, your dog will learn all of the basics including sit, down, stay, come, and loose leash walking. We'll also work on common behavior issues such as jumping.
Each class will last for 6 weeks. The great thing about our open enrollment classes is that you can start class as soon as there is an opening on the schedule.
If you choose to stick with it, by Level 3, we'll be preparing you and your dog for AKC's Canine Good Citizen exam, which includes lots of great practice material including polite greetings with strangers, ignoring a passing dog, and supervised separation. When you are ready, we'll let you know when the next exam is so that you can officially title your dog as a Canine Good Citizen!
If your dog already knows some stuff, we still recommend starting in Adult 1. This is a great chance to review some of the basics with your dog with the added distractions of a new environment, other dogs, and people! If you've already taken a basic class elsewhere, you can start at our Adult 2 level - just email us at [email protected]
and we can test your dog out of Adult 1.
