Our Basic + Obedience Class teaches you how to train your dog through positive reinforcement. The class covers basic commands such as sit, down, stay, come (recall), off, leave it, drop it, etc. We also cover loose-leash walking and waiting at the door.

Five rewards are utilized to train your dog: touch, treats, voice, loose leash, and play.

This class will also deal with how to fix problem behaviors you might be experiencing. Socialization and working among distractions is a bonus of this class. These classes are geared toward dogs 4 months and older.

All levels are welcome (dogs that are more experienced will be trained at their level). Come and have some fun while you learn with your new best friend!

Dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations before beginning training. For your advantage and benefit, classes do have a cap, so please register soon. A dog must be accompanied by a handler who is 18 years of age or older.
