FAMILY DOG OBEDIENCE – LEVEL ONE

This class focuses on teaching basic obedience skills and good manners using the positive reinforcement technique known as “clicker training”.  You will learn how to teach your dog basic skills, such as come, sit, down, walking on a loose leash, and stay.  Discussions of common behavior problems such as jumping up, barking, pulling, and chewing are included in each week’s lesson.  Emphasis is also placed on understanding behaviors from a dog’s perspective, so that solutions to on-going problems can be addressed.

Prerequisite: Vaccinated and socialized older adolescent or adult dogs with or without previous formal training.

Time Frame: This 6 week class includes a training manual, weekly homework handouts, clicker, and a certificate of completion.  Please Note: Come to the first night of class WITH YOUR DOG, a buckle collar or harness, a 6 foot leash and LOTS of tiny, tasty treats. We will introduce you and your dog to key training concepts together.

Cost $170.00. Save $50 when you also purchase enrollment in Family Dog 2.
