  • Bad Weather notice - during winter ice storms or tornadoes in
    the immediate area of the Academy - we will cancel classes and  
    add a week on so you don't miss any of the information.  We
believe everyone's safety should come first.  If there is bad                 
weather, your instructor will try to call you - we will post a note              
on this web site, our yahoo groups (which everyone can join), on
Facebook and try to send  you an email if we have it.  Or - just call your
instructor if you aren't sure.

These are descriptions of some of our core classes that
have been offered at the Academy.  

"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
required)
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.
( Basic obedience skills required).
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.
