Our Obedience program includes both family manners classes, and classes geared towards those who wish to advance their training.
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!
Rally Beginning is a class designed to familiarize individuals to the AKC Rally program. Teams negotiate a course consisting of stations that describe the exercise that must be performed. The main emphasis is on having fun and developing teamwork. Novice - Advanced signs will be taught.
Rally Workshop will consist of Excellent & Master's courses and will include assistance in understanding and teaching the signs.
Flyball is a dog sport in which teams of dogs race against each other from the start to the finish line, over a line of hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad, then back to their handlers while carrying the ball. The North American Flyball Association is the major sanctioning organization. An entry level class introducing the basic understanding and skills needed for this fast paced sport.
