Training Class Descriptions

Obedience Classes

Basic Obedience (BOT)

Age: Over 6 months

Prerequisites: None

Duration: 6 weeks (6 classes)

In this class, you will learn all the basic commands such as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘leave it’ as well as controlled leash walking and more all while having fun with your dog! These commands are important for the well-being of you and your canine’s relationship with one another. We also take time to introduce you to tricks and equipment such as tunnels, jumps and hoops. You must complete this course (here or with another trainer, and must have certificate of graduation) before moving onto the Advanced Obedience Training Course.

Advanced Obedience (ADOT)

Age: Over 6 months

Prerequisites: Graduation from a Basic Obedience Class

Duration: 8 weeks (8 classes)

Advanced Obedience Training is the next level up from Basic Obedience Training. The class is intended to give you confidence handling your dog on and off leash with unwavering results. The class begins being taught on leash and eventually graduates to being off leash once confidence and competence is displayed by the group. By the end, you should have an obedient canine friend who is handler-oriented and provides quick responses to your every command. This class will teach you to master yours and your dog’s obedience skills!
