These are descriptions of some of our core classes that
have been offered at the Academy.
( Basic obedience skills required).
|"STAR" Puppy- This is designed for puppies 8 to 20 weeks in age. Puppies |
|begin to learn good manners and basic leash training. It introduces puppies to |
social play with other puppies and humans. This class will offer assistance on
crate training and house breaking, and address common problems such as
biting, chewing, digging, and jumping. At the end of the class, the puppies will
take their AKC Puppy STAR Test.
| Basic I Obedience - This course teaches and reinforces basic leash control, |
|sit, down, come, stay commands, and helps with social behaviors at home and |
away. Any dog four months or older is allowed.
|Basic II Obedience - This course builds on basic obedience course with |
|introduction to front and finish exercises, stand-stay, figure eights, and off-lead |
work. The Canine Good Citizen 10 steps will be incorporated into the training
with the CGC Evaluation given at the last class. (Basic Obedience skills
|Rally Obedience - This is one of AKC's newer sports. At the Novice level a |
|handler and dog team work their way through a course of 10 - 12 stations |
performing the correct maneuvers. All work is done on lead. The class will
introduce the dog and handler to this concept, different stations, and rules. The
competition is not as rigorous as traditional obedience.
|Conformation - We offer a two hour drop in class for dogs competing in the |
|dog show ring. The classes are designed for people and dogs already familiar |
with ring procedures of AKC shows. Emphasis will be on perfecting one's
techniques of better ring presentation.
|Canine Good Citizen Testing - Dogs who complete Basic Obedience will |
|have the opportunity to test for an AKC Canine Good Citizen certification. Dogs |
need to pass a 10-step test which includes such thinks as Accept a friendly
stranger, walk through a crown and reactions to distractions.
|We also now offer a CGCA class.|
|Agility - This is a sport in which dog and handler work as a team. We offer a |
|Foundation Class (Intro level). Beginner I and II followed by Novice. It shows the |
dog's willingness to work and requires conditioning, concentration, and training.
(Prerequisite: Basic Obedience)
|Therapy Dog Skills Class - this special class is set up to help you pass your |
|Pet Therapy test and help you work towards finding a way to go to hospitals, |
senior citizens homes, or other areas that our pets are needed to help warm the
heart of someone who needs TLC.
|TDAA Agility - a special training for our smaller breeds to teach them about |
|Toy Dog Agility Association. We have the TDAA equipment to train on and will |
teach you the rules of this fun agility organization and help you be prepared to
compete and earn titles with TDAA.
