Class Descriptions

Positive Reinforcement Basic Obedience Class
This class teaches you how to get your dog's attention, teach your dog to sit, stay, down, come when called, walk without pulling on the leash and target items. This class will give you the tools to help your dog become a good companion. Dogs that have a solid obedience education are a joy to be around. They enjoy the company of owners who take the time to provide training and offer intellectual stimulation. Classes are open for any dog 12 weeks of age or older. Experienced instructors will also help with solutions to problem behaviors.

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Class
The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program is the puppy level of the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program. S.T.A.R. stands for Socialization, Training, Activity and a Responsible owner. Early training and socialization are the keys to having a well behaved dog. Class will teach you how to best communicate with your puppies, start training the basic commands (sit, come, walking on a leash), provide information on puppy raising questions (chewing, housetraining, jumping, etc.), while offering a chance for puppies to socialize (at instructors discretion) with others in a safe and supervised environment. The class is open to all dogs up to one year of age. Puppies may begin as soon as they have the necessary vaccinations. In order to be eligible to take the S.T.A.R. Puppy Test at the end of the class, participants must attend a minimum of six classes with their dogs.

AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Class
AKC Canine Good Citizen is a certification program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. It is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. It lays the foundation for other activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, performance events and therapy work. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you will discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. In this class we will reinforce and practice the skills necessary to pass the AKC CGC test. Dogs must have completed a basic obedience class prior to enrolling in this class. The class concludes with the AKC CGC Test.
