Basic Obedience Private Course

Basic Obedience is designed for dogs 6 months old and older. The basic manners all good dogs should know are taught in this class. The lessons focus on building the relationship between dog and person and laying the groundwork for the harder basic manners. The Private Basic Obedience Program is 6 weeks long. Our basic program teaches the CGC tasks in addition to basic manners.

We offer the AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluation as part of the Private Basic Obedience class. You will need to pick a scheduled test to attend. There are typically 2 scheduled tests a month starting in February.

Each weekly session has three parts, a Concept, Manners, and Extras. Concepts explain helpful things for humans to understand, like how dogs learn and training techniques. Manners focuses on the behavior(s) that are being highlighted for the week. Extras is all about having fun with your dog and teaches tricks or games that help build the bond and make training fun. Helpful tips and other beneficial information is shared in this section.
