Obedience Training is one of the best things you can do for your dog… and especially for yourself. Obedience training doesn’t solve all behavior problems, but it is the foundation for solving just about any problem. Training opens up a line of communication between you and your dog. Effective communication is necessary to instruct your dog about what you want her to do. With a few basics, you can teach your dog anything from ‘stay’ (don’t bolt out the door) to ‘sit’ (don’t jump up on the visitors), to ‘leave it’ (don’t chew the furniture).

Obedience training builds a good foundation for other dog activities such as:

Agility, canine musical freestyle, rally obedience, canine good citizen, foundation skills.

Orientation is 6:30 pm, Thursday March 22, 2018 WITHOUT  Dogs is required for all participants.

Registration form must be received by Monday March 12, 2018.  Forms can be filled in online, printed and then mailed.
