Is your dog taking you for a walk instead of you walking him? Is he jumping up on your guests? Maybe it’s time to take your pet to basic dog obedience training! Basic skills to be taught are: sit, stay, down, come, heel, etc. In this course, you will learn behavioral, reward based training. Week two will be without dogs. At this time, participants identify problems and goals for you and your dog. The final week involves a version of the canine good citizen evaluation of your dog. The course is designed for dog owners who want to understand basic dog training for both the home and working dogs in public. If you have a leash at home, bring it with you to class so the instructor can determine if it is what you need. Class size is limited.
