Our basic obedience classes are great for all dogs, whether a puppy you’ve just brought home or a ten year old dog you are looking to start some training with.
By creating a fun learning environment where games are used to teach most skills, we aim to give you and your dog the tools necessary to get on your way to developing basic skills that are the foundation of a great relationship with your dog.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Classes are SIX WEEKS in length
Group sizes are FIVE DOGS MAX.
Having a great relationship with your dog starts with the most basic of skills and
understanding of leadership. Dogs want us to show them that we are there to lead
and protect them. Dogs are pack animals and within any pack, there is a leader.
It is our duty as their owner to responsibly take on that leadership role -
The word “leadership” tends to have a lot of negativity associated with it when it
comes to dog training. This should not be the case! It’s not about forceful actions
to show your dog ‘who’s the boss’, rather it’s about teaching the dog that you hold
the keys to all things ‘good’ in life and in order to earn those keys, the dog must
learn to respect you and play by your rules. If they choose not to, they simply
don’t get the privileges to those keys. If you have kids, this may sound familiar
