Obedience is the foundation for effective communication.
This 3 week program is great for the busy working family or if you are just having trouble “getting on the same page” with teaching your dog what you want. I will bring your dog home with me and work on training in a real life home environment. The basic commands of walking on a loose leash, heel, sit, down, place (a boundary stay), come when called, out (drop what’s in your mouth), leave it. Jumping, play biting and anything else that might be a problem will also be addressed.

This is a 6 week class. In this class, the foundation is laid for common commands such as the loose leash walk, sit, down, come, place and stay. Place is a boundry stay where your dog can sit, stand or lay down but can’t leave the bed or mat that they have been placed on. This is a great exercise for allowing people to come into your home and get settled before greeting the family dog.

This is a 6 week class for dogs and handlers who have passed a basic obedience class. Exercises learned in basic obedience will be challenged and reinforced with increased distance, duration and higher levels of distraction. The loose leash walk will be shaped into heel position and your dog will learn to sit at your side when you come to a stop. Come when called will be shaped into a sit in front. In this class, your dog will be expected to stay on place while you wait your turn.
