Basic Dog Obedience Classes

Experienced Instructors:

Toni Yurkovic

Sally Tress

 

Monday evenings

6 Week Sessions - $80 Introductory Rate

Sessions will alternate between Basic I, Basic II, and Basic III

 

Basic I Obedience – For dogs who have little or no previous obedience training.  We will cover dog attention, sit, down, stand, stay, come, heel and leave it.

Basic II Obedience – Intended for those who have completed Basic I Obedience and would like to advance to the next level of training.  We will be improving heeling position, dog attention, finishes and figure eights.  We will begin weaning treats.  Dogs will be working in close proximity to one another and learn to stay focused on the handler.  There will be an increase in time and distance on all stays, and distractions will be introduced. 

Basic III Obedience – For those who have completed Basic II Obedience.  We will build on the basic exercises, and dog attention will be enhanced with targeting.  We will be introducing several rally and freestyle exercises.  Handlers will enjoy interesting heeling patterns including having the dog work on both sides, off leash heeling, backups and fronts.

About Us - We have been teaching dog obedience classes for many years.  We have a very down-to-earth positive approach to dog training and try to make learning fun for both dog and handler through various games and exercises.  Daily practice at home is a must.
