Description

The purpose of these classes is to help dogs learn and practice obedience under all types of conditions, environments, and distractions, starting with the five basic commands: sit, down, heal, stay and come. As the dog progresses, the number of commands, exercises, and the level of difficulty increases drastically. The final desired result is to have a well-mannered, confident, and well-behaved dog under all situations.


Duration

This is a drop in class. The duration of this course is 8-12 weeks, depending on the progress of each individual dog and handler.


Audience
