The obedience training program is designed for pet owners who wish to have a well behaved dog. Training provides a way of establishing a system of communication and a solid working relationship between you and your dog. Through training, the dog learns what you expect when a command is given. This relationship establishes you as the leader of the pack and with consistent work, trust and love will grow. Your dog becomes a well behaved companion who is secure in his place beside you.  

Basic Class: This is the class for untrained dogs and their people. Learn to teach your dog basic obedience (heel, sit, down, stay, and COME when called! and walking on a loose leash.)

AKC Introduction to Competition and Rally Obedience- see flyer.

    •  Are you wondering if Competition Obedience is for you and your dog?
    •  Do you have a new dog that is ready to move into the world of competition but isn't quite ready for the "real" novice       Obedience titling class?
    •  Have you completed basic obedience classes and just want to continue having fun and working with your dog?

Then you might want to consider this class! Using what was learned in the Basic Obedience Class, you and your dog will be introduced to some of the exercises that are used in beginning obedience competitions and learn the FUNdamentals of Rally Obedience.
