Obedience, Basic & Familiy Manners, Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Prep, and Therapy Dog Training Class Descriptions:
Family Dog - Basic and Family Manners– Ages 3 months and up.
This class is designed for all dogs from 3 months and up working towards being a well-mannered canine companion. We will work on basic manners and common problem behaviors such as dogs jumping on people and barking along with basic obedience commands such as sit, down, stand, stay, working with distractions, and loose leash walking. We will help you with canine impulse control including not running out of open doors and waiting for food - everything to make your 4-legged friend a well-behaved family member.
Advanced Obedience/CGC Prepartion – Prerequisite: Completion of Basic and Family Manners
Building on the basic manners class, this class will continue working on skills learned such as walking on a loose leash, sit and stay, down and stay and coming when called. We will be adding duration, distance, and bigger distractions, to this reality training class.
Therapy Dog Training - 8 week class - Prerequisites: Ages 1 year and up, Canine Good Citizen certification earned when the dog was at least 1 year old.
This class prepares you and your dog for social visits to hospitals, nursing homes, to reading programs at schools, libraries, and visits to other public settings. Therapy dogs and their owners work together as a team to improve the lives of other people.
Dogs must have Canine Good Citizenship certification that was received after they were 1 year old to enroll in this program.
