Dog Obedience Training Classes

Obedience  Classes are offered during four sessions each year. Our experienced  instructors team teach, using a positive reinforcement method of  dog training. Classes are open to any dog who is at least 12 weeks of age.  Dogs and owners of all ages can benefit from the techniques used.  Children must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Basic Dog Obedience Training & S.T.A.R. Puppy Classes


Basic  and S.T.A.R. Puppy class sessions are seven weeks long and offered on  Tuesday nights. Class size is limited and spaces are reserved on a first  come, first served basis determined by receipt of the Registration form  and payment (cash or check made payable to "Clever Canines").


The  first night of our Basic and S.T.A.R. Puppy Classes is our orientation  class, so participants come without their dogs. During subsequent  classes with the dogs, participants will need a flat buckle collar or  equivalent (no metal or correction collars) and a four to six foot leash  made of leather, nylon or equivalent (no chain leashes or flexi-leads).  

CGC Preparation Classes


The  CGC Prep classes are 6 weeks long with a one-hour class taught on  Tuesdays. Participants in this class will bring their dogs the very  first night of class. In order to participate in the CGC Prep class, you  and your dog must have attended and completed one basic class. Please  bring your certificate of completion for the basic class you attended. 

What to do next


If interested, simply follow the instructions on our Information Letter for the class you are interested in, fill out the Registration Form and have your veterinarian fill out and sign our Certificate of Vaccination.  No dog will be allowed to attend class until the Certificate of  Vaccination has been completed and signed by your veterinarian. We want  to take every precaution to insure our class setting is healthy for all who attend.
