Saturday Group Obedience Class
"Why won't my dog do what I tell it to?" Obedience is the foundation for a successful relationship with your canine companion. Our focus is to simplify your communication with your dog by simplifying commands and reinforcing behaviors. You and your dog will learn to work on and off leash practicing sit/stay, down/stay, heel, the recall, walking on a loose leash and simply staying with you. This is a 5 mth package (every Saturday). And don't worry if you can't do EVERY Saturday- we know you are busy- you can step into class whenever ready without missing anything.
Finally agility is here in the valley! This class is designed for the active dog and owner. You will learn 13 obstacles and how to utilize them in a course. Your dog will learn to watch and follow your commands happily as there are very few dogs that don't like this sport!
*Pre-requisite: basic obedience (sit/stay or down/stay and basic attention, food motivated)
*Indoor/ outdoor depending on weather.

CANINE GOOD CITIZEN
CGC is a Program designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs.
All dogs who pass the 10-step obedience CGC test receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. Many dog owners choose Canine Good Citizen training as the first step in training their dogs. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the psence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life. We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you'll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events.
Pre-requisite course: Basic Obedience or the equivalent
