The Level 1 Group Obedience package is designed to give you and your dog the foundations upon which to build your training. Each class will work on skills to help your dog learn how to learn effectively and help you teach them in a way they understand. Our classes max out at 6 dogs so there is always plenty of attention and time for questions.
- Increase the distance from which your dog understands commands
- Increase the distraction under which your dog will follow commands
- Increase the duration for which your dog will hold commands
- AKC Canine Good Citizenship Test (CGC)
The Level 2 Group package builds off of where Level 1 leaves off and increases the distance, duration, and distractions in the environment during training; you will learn to fine-tune your communication skills with your dog. We will also introduce your dog to leave it, drop it, and sending to place from a distance. Level 2 will prepare your dog for and conclude with the CGC test during the last class; the CGC is a combination of 10 basic obedience tasks designed to demonstrate your dog’s ability to be a well-behaved member of society. This class has a maximum of 6 dogs to ensure plenty of one-on-one attention. The completion of this class will result in eligibility for our Lifetime Class and our Level 3 class where you will bring your dog to new environment to help refine your communication in new places. We cap this class at 6 dogs so call to sign up soon!
Our Level 3 Group package takes place off-site at various locations such as parks, train stations, and pet-friendly stores to help your dog learn that commands must be followed in all situations with new environments and distractions around them. We will cap this class at 6 dogs so there is plenty of individual attention.
