Obedience Classes

Our Obedience program includes both family manners classes, and classes geared towards those who wish to advance their training.

Family Manners

The Kindergarten Puppy Training (KPT) class is designed for puppies under the age of 4 months at the start of the class. Emphasis is on learning early intervention to prevent bad habits (jumping, chewing etc.), beginning training, and socialization to other dogs, people, and unusual situations.

STAR Puppy Training (KPT) emphasizes the AKC’s Star Puppy Program.

The Beginners Obedience class is designed for dogs of all ages who have not had previous training or need to review the basics. We will show you effective methods for dealing with typical dog training issues. Emphasis is on basic household manners - walking on a leash, sitting and downing on command, coming when called, etc. It is never too late to train your dog!

Advanced Classes

Rally Novice/Advanced Workshop is for dogs that have taken a Beginning Rally class or have earned a Rally Novice title or higher.

Rally Excellent/Master Workshop is for dogs at the Intermediate level or higher.

Distractions Workshop: The focus of this class is on getting dogs to obey their owners in the presence of distractions. We will work on proofing behaviors and get your dog working in the presence of various distractions. The exact skills will be dependent on the teams who join the class. Whether you are looking to proof behaviors for competition or general pet manners this is your opportunity.  Prerequisites: Basic Obedience including reliable performance of the following behaviors: sit, stay, down, stand, recall, heeling or loose leash walking.

 Conformation Workshop is geared towards dogs destined for the breed ring. Novice dogs and handlers are welcome as well as more advanced teams that wish to work on improving their performance.

Obedience Class Schedule


For the safety of growing puppies, dogs less than 12 month of age will not be able to participate in some activities in classes beyond Foundations.
Our classes emphasize the AKC Agility program

Foundations Agility: Open to dogs 4 months and up, as well as to those already competing. This class will introduce your dog to the fun sport of agility and emphasize building a positive working relationship between dog and handler. The class will help develop agility skills including: attention (focus with distraction), impulse control, drive, recalls and sends, positional cues, and behavior shaping on low and starter equipment.

Advanced Intermediate puts emphasis on reviewing and reinforcing skills learned in Intermediate for both handler and dogs. Sequences will be more challenging with the goal of moving to actual competition level.

Agility Handling is designed for individuals who have completed Intermediate Agility or its equivalent. Emphasis is on handling techniques and course strategy.
