Beginner 1 Obedience

The dog's first obedience class, no matter what his/her age. The dog and his/her human work together to establish the bond that lasts a lifetime through communication, leadership and basic commands. A group class setting provides the dog with socialization with other dogs and their people - an essential element to the dog's early development. The positive, reward-based training method assures that the dog and his/her human are always having fun together – if you're going to train your dog, why not have fun doing it! Two tricks-for-fun are taught in the beginner one class.

The 8-week class format allows plenty of time for solving those annoying puppy behaviors (i.e. jumping, nipping, pulling on the leash). While the dog learns basic commands, his/her human learns how to teach the dog, how to be the dog's "leader," how to solve problems that arise during the dog's development and how to communicate effectively with the dog. We do not use (or allow) any type of choking, pinching or other corrective, pain-causing collars. If desired, a head halter (i.e. Gentle Leader) may be used but is never mandatory. Dogs will learn to obey willingly while having fun with their humans.

Prerequisite: DLPP, Bordatella, Rabies vaccinations (we do not expose your puppy or dog to unvaccinated puppies due to the enormous number of puppy mills local to our geographic location which unfortunately present a risk that is greater than the benefit of socializing puppies before all vaccinations)
