"Begin with a common sense approach to dog obedience" - Larry and Dana Babb
Basic Obedience Class
We combine old fashioned common sense with today's more progressive positive motivational training techniques. Our Basic dog obedience course provides you with the instruction to train and control your dog. We teach what we consider the minimum requirements for any dog to be a Canine Good Citizen. Through a logical class progression, you will train your dog to sit on command, stand, lie down, stay where left, come when called, and heel at your side on a loose leash.
Other subjects include how to stop your dog from running through an open door or teach your dog not to jump on people. We also address territorialism, problem barking and common stealing. We include simple ways to stop the nipping and biting, solve your hole digging problems, and will address your specific issues willingly.
In addition to the traditional group lessons, we provide individual guidance in each class to show you how to GENTLY, but effectively, perform each training technique. Well behaved children are welcome in class, and ALL family members are encouraged to attend our sessions along with the primary handler. The Goal? A dog who reliably, willingly and happily responds to your family. Basic Dog Obedience is offered in other formats, when available.
This is a 6-Week, 1-Hour per week course, please see below for available class sessions. Classes can be made up by jumping into another class for that lesson. See "Core Calendar" for Lesson numbers.
