Basic Obedience (6 weeks) $75

Basic Obedience is also known as a course for “companion dogs,” because your dog is learning to be the well-behaved companion you’ve always wanted. This class is also the foundation for you and your dog to become a team with the skills to participate in the exciting world of dog sports.

Handlers learn to train their dogs to perform basic commands: sit, down, stand, stay. Handlers also learn to teach their dogs to walk peacefully on a leash and come when called.
