Beginner Puppy

This class is designed for all pups 8 weeks up 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. The class will offer assistance on crate training, housebreaking, biting and chewing. 

Polite Puppy

This class follows Beginner Puppy for puppies 5 to 7 months old. It is more of the same with assistance in other puppy challenges, better leash work, more on commands, and the AKC S.T. A.R. Puppy evaluation at the last class.

Basic 1 & 2

Basic I is next in progression after either of the puppy classes. It is also where all first-time dogs with no formal training will start. The class covers all behavior challenges, general commands. leash work, come and more.

Basic II next in line with all that have completed Basic I. it reinforces leash control, sit, down, stay commands and social behaviors. It’s a more formal obedience course with heeling, automatic sits, stand stay, figure eights and more. It also builds teamwork between dog and handler

Canine Good Citizen

The main focus is the 10 steps necessary to pass the Canine Good Citizen evaluation. Basic obedience skills are required.

Advanced CGC

Community Good Citizen is the advanced Canine Good Citizen class. 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 one's belt when moving onto Therapy Dog work. Basic Obedience skills are required.

Urban Canine Citizen

AKC Urban Canine Citizen requires that the dog demonstrate CGC skills and beyond in a setting that includes traffic, crowds, noises, smells and other distractions that are present in a city or town. This is a public access test that demonstrates a well-behaved and trained dog in public settings.

Rally Obedience - Intro & Advanced

Rally Obedience is one of AKC's titling sports. It’s a perfect starting point for those who are new to canine sports. Rally provides an introduction to most Companion Events for dogs and handlers to strengthen their skills. Basic obedience skills are required.

Conformation

This is a drop-in class which means you can come any time you choose and only pay a $10 fee. It's for dogs and handlers competing in the dog show ring. Emphasis will be on perfecting one's techniques for better ring presentation.

Newcomers are Welcome!

Classes are held on Sundays. Please watch our Facebook page for the schedule.

Scent Classes

A fun class for games or competition. Classes could lead to scent venues such as UKC Nose Work or AKC Scentwork. It also is a great energy burner.

If it is bad weather, your instructor will try to call you. We will post a note on this website, in our yahoo groups (which everyone can join), and on Facebook. We will also try to send you an email if we have your email. Or just call your instructor if you aren’t sure.
