Group Obedience Training

Group obedience training at Maximum Canine is a good option for those that are looking to progress their training skills while benefiting from the questions and experiences of others in the dog training group classes. Group obedience classes give clients the opportunity to hear answers to questions they may not have thought to ask. 

We will lay a foundation of clear and consistent communication while helping you build a bond with your dog that makes training together a reward in and of itself.

About Our Group Obedience Dog Training

Our Level 1 Basic Obedience class is the perfect introduction for dogs to learn the basics of our communication style and start the process of learning the foundations of obedience. Using marker training we will help you learn to teach your dog basic commands: 

• sit
• down
• place
• loose leash walking
• recall
• polite greetings
• the value of engagement

Basic Obedience Training Prerequisite

Brief evaluation to ensure there are no inappropriate behaviors that would be dangerous or disruptive to the class.

Our Level 2 Intermediate Obedience is designed to build upon techniques learned in Level 1 and work toward fine-tuning your dog’s obedience. We will work to increase your dog’s understanding of training by expecting behaviors with less handler help and under higher distraction. 

The class culminates in the A.K.C. Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) test.

The AKC CGC test is designed to replicate things that your dog would need to do in pet-friendly, public areas such as polite greetings, loose leash walking, reaction to distractions, and more.

Intermediate Obedience Training Prerequisite

Trainer approval AND one of the following: Level 1, private package, or board and train.

Our Level 3 class meets at different, pet-friendly locations every week to help your dog learn to work around new distractions in new environments. Dogs often struggle to generalize information from one location to another so bringing them to a variety of environments helps them understand appropriate behavior in new situations. 

Off-site Obedience Training Prerequisite

Our level 4 class is an advanced version of our Level 3 Off-site Obedience Group Training class.

Our precision handling class focuses on sport style obedience similar to styles found in:

• A.K.C. Rally

We will teach you how to work with your dog in drive (the unconscious, biological desire to engage in certain behavior) to channel your dog’s energy into productive goals. We will introduce advanced obedience exercises such as: 

• focused heeling
• out of motion exercises
• position changes
• crisp (decisive/without hesitation) obedience
