Our Goal

WE TRAIN DOGS' Basic Obedience Program is the foundation of all well mannered dogs. This class will teach you and your dog how basic cues can help with good manners and proper leash etiquette.

Program Details

These classes are for dogs 5 months and older.

 

This is a six week program. One class a week for six weeks. The classes are usually one hour long. We schedule each class according to your avialibility.

Each class will consist of a training period and a play period. During the training period we with work with your dog teaching them the behavior and skills they need so the both of you can live a happy healthy life together. Then we will teach you how to work those behaviors and skills with your dog.

 

Areas of Focus

Our Basic Obedience Program has three specific areas of focus: Basic Obedience, Manners, and Management Skills.

Basic Obedience

Your dog will be trained on basic obedience skills including:

  • Focus

  • Come

  • Sit

  • Down

  • Wait

  • Place

  • Walking on a Loose Leash

Manners

Because your dog is never to young or old to learn good manners. During the class we will also address:

  • Jumping

  • Sit to greet

  • Proper leash etiquette

  • Wait at a door or barrier

Management Skills

  • Go to Place (settle on a mat or bed)

  • Leave it (turn away from an object or distraction)

 

What You'll Need

Here is a list of thing you will need for this program.

  1. A copy of your dog's current vaccination records

  2. A collar. Preferable a martingale style collar or a slip collar. However, a buckle collar will be fine.

  3. A 6 foot leash. No retractable or chain leashes.

  4. A treat bag, pouch, or fanny pack.

  5. Treats. Lots of small, easy-to-chew, high-value treats. Cut up pieces of cheese or hot dogs are good choices, as are soft treats made specifically for training. (Experiment in advance to discover what your dog really loves.)

Preparing for class: 

  1. Make sure to give your dog time to relieve themselves before class.

  2. Please, do not feed your dog before class. A hungry dog is more motivated to learn.
