Group obedience classes are held yearly in the spring and fall, and sometimes winter. With a few exceptions all classes are held with dogs on leash. The commands of sit, down, stay, come, and leash manners ( heeling ) are emphasized). Group classes are also an excellent opportunity to socialize your dog by being around other dogs and people in a controlled situation. For further details about the classes please contact me so I can put you on a list of being interested and contact you about further class details once I have specific dates and times selected.
I usually hold group obedience classes in spring and fall and sometimes in the winter (Indoors). Each session usually lasts an hour for a total of 7 sessions altogether. Training is both basic and in the spring advanced classes are offered.
Basic classes involve the commands sit, down, stay, come, and leash manners (heeling). In advanced classes more off leash exercises are taught for AKC competitive obedience trials. Novice, Open, and Utility classed are covered. It’s not necessary for anyone participating in these sessions to have to enter any obedience shows, but most of my clients have and usually with success. Advanced class sessions usually last 6 to 9 weeks. Spring sessions for 2019 will begin in late March and if you wish to preregister contact me by phone or email.
