SPRING DOG OBEDIENCE- 2018 BEGINNERS CLASS
Want a better best friend? Want a dog that is truly a part of your family, well-mannered and welcome in your community? Beginner Obedience is the answer
Obedience training is one of the best things you can do for your dog/puppy and yourself. Share a connection between you and your dog and have fun! Paula’s class will focus on positive reinforcement for both participants and their dogs.
Designed for dogs 6 months and older, this class provides the foundation for a well-mannered pet. No dog is too old to learn! The owner/handler is taught the basic concepts of dog training and skills to help your dog to become a wonderful companion.
Those skills include come when called, walk on a loose leash, sit, down, and developing a positive relationship between dog and handler. Positive reinforcement (praise, treats, play, toys) is the cornerstone of training. Emphasis is on building a clear communication system with mutual respect while having fun together.
Much more than your basic obedience training! Increase your communication.
Please bring choke chain, six foot leash and motivational treats of your choice (hot dogs). Dogs must be six months or older, or have instructor approval. Dog handlers must be at least 12 years old, no exceptions. Bring proof of vaccination to first class. Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies and parvo
