These are descriptions of some of our core
classes that are offered at the Academy.
(We are changing some classes and adding a few)
( Basic obedience skills required)
|Beginner Puppy - This class is designed for all pups 8 weeks to 12 weeks in |
|age. Puppies begin to learn good manners and basic leash training. It introduces |
puppies to social play with other puppies and humans. The class will offer
assistance on crate training and house breaking, and address common
problems such as biting, chewing, digging, and jumping.
|This class is followed by the AKC STAR Puppy Class. It is more of the same |
|with assistance in other puppy challenges, better leash work, more on |
commands, and the S.T.A.R. evaluation at the last clas.s
| 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 4 months or older is allowed. (Some large breeds can start this
class at 3 months.)
|Basic II (Interim) Obedience - This course is a more formal obedience |
|course with heeling, good automatic sits, introduction to front and finish |
exercises, stand-stay, figure eights, and Team work between dog and handler.
Some Rally obedience will also be introcuced.
|Canine Good Citizen - Main focus is the 10 steps necessary to pass the |
|Canine Good Citizen evaluation. (Basic Obedience skills required)|
| Community Good Citizen (Advanced Canine Good Citizen) is a |
|separate class training toward another AKC certification. The CGC class will |
have two off site classes. One at a local restaurant and one at a local store
permitting dogs. Both CGC and CGCA are excellent classes to have under ones
belt when moving onto Therapy Dog work. (Basic Obedience skills required)
|Rally Obedience - This is one of AKC's titling sports. Other venues also |
|support Rally sometime with a slightly different name There have been many |
changes in Rally obedience and it's a very popular team build activity.
URBAN CANINE GOOD CITIZEN - This is a public access test that
demonstrates a well-behaved and trained dog in public settings.
AGILITY AND THERAPY DOG SKILLS
|Conformation - We offer two drop in classes 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. One class is specifically designed for our up and
coming Junior Handlers. NEWCOMERS WELCOME!
|TRICK DOG CLASSES AND TITLING - We have three Certified Trick Dog |
|instructors to assist you with "Do More With Your Dog". We have four of us who |
are also CGC Evaluators and can certify those wanting to test for their AKC
Trick Titles (New for 2017)
|CANINE FITNESS - We have two Master Trainers in Canine Fitness. Great |
|opportunity to increase your dog's confidence, get your athletic dog in better |
shape and build a better team.
