 Large Breed Obedience – Wednesdays 7:15 – 8:15 PM

(Another session will be added  if required)

Description

These classes will help your dog learn essential obedience skills needed for any lifestyle and situation. They are geared for dogs and puppies over 6 months of age. In addition to traditional training methods, games will be used to teach the dogs to focus and engage with their handlers. This engagement enhances the dogs willingness to work with the handler and learn new skills. There are three separate classes held for large (over 50 pounds), mid - size (over 20 pounds and up to 50 pounds) and small breed (up to 20 pounds) dogs respectively. This helps to avoid issues like aggression and anxiety between dogs of different sizes.

Training Prerequisite: None

Lessons Covered:

  • Walking on a leash without pulling and sitting or lying down when the handler stops
  • Sitting, lying down, and standing on command
  • Staying when sitting, lying down, or standing
  • Working and listening with other dogs in the environment
  • Coming when called and performing a heel (sitting in front for the owner to grasp the collar)
  • Learning the difference between time for work and time for play
  • Some socializing with other dogs and other handlers
  • Many other exercises are also covered, with any questions answered.

Next Steps: Dogs that complete this class can either repeat it to solidify the lessons learned, or progress to more specialized classes.
