Our group classes are fun, dynamic and very educational. The main target of these classes is forward progress toward reliable off leash obedience performance. By that we mean that your dog is off leash and you give a command from any distance away and your dog obeys. If you are just starting out in dog training this might sound impossible, but it’s not. We’ve created 4 levels of classes to help you achieve this goal.
Our class levels aren’t about age as much as experience. We want most dogs to start at Level I and if it’s clear you and your dog are ready to something more challenging, we’ll move you into the appropriate class level.
Every class addresses socialization and specific behavior issues, plus there is always time for your questions.
Level I $125
We start to build the foundation for obedience. That means loose-leash walking, sit, down, stand, stay and the very beginning of recall.
Level II $125
We briefly review the things learned in Level I and then move you and your dog forward with working on motion commands, commands from 6 feet away and eventually progressing towards using a long line (50 feet) to start gaining control at a distance.
Level III $200
In this class, our instructors get more particular about accuracy with your leash skills and reaction times. We maintain our focus on off leash reliability by working more with a long line. We also practice motion commands, spontaneous commands and recall.
Level IV $275
This class was designed especially for those who enjoy obedience training with their dog and want a more demanding class. You will learn to fine tune your leash skills, sharpen your reaction time with your corrections and anticipate your dog’s reactions to various distractions. This intense class is not meant for everyone, you need to have completed a Level III class session (or have permission from one of our trainers) and have a desire to be challenged.
Clicker training is a common form of positive reinforcement This simple and effective training method utilizes a clicker, which is a metal strip inside a small plastic box that makes a distinct clicking sound when pressed. The click is much faster and more distinct than saying "good dog" and much more effective than training with treats alone. To teach a dog the meaning of the click, a treat is given immediately after clicking. Once the dog learns the positive effects of the clicking sound, the clicker itself acts as a conditioned reinforcer. Clickers can be found at most major pet stores and are relatively inexpensive.
