Dog Training I is the perfect obedience course for dogs that have never taken a class before or for dogs needing to brush up on rusty obedience skills. We use innovative and unique training methods that are specifically designed for adolescent and adult dogs which may be inattentive or ill-mannered.

Our absolutely unique and innovative all-or-none reward training techniques make training adolescent and adult dogs a peaceful and enjoyable experience. Initial exercises focus on calming, settling-down and regaining attention to facilitate teaching basic manners - sit, down, stand, stay, walking on-leash and polite greetings.

This class is taught on-leash.

WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS

Proof of rabies vaccination is required at the first class. We strongly prefer documentation on paper as opposed to a rabies tags. This is a legal requirement and your dog will not be allowed to participate until proof has been furnished.

Have your dog wear a flat, buckle/snap collar – no harnesses or training collars that tighten. Please have your pooch on a 6’ leash. “Flexi” leashes are not appropriate for class.

Don’t feed your dog right before class. Instead, bring their kibble to class in a ziploc bag for use as lures and rewards while training. Also bring a few extra-tasty treats to reward your pup for their best performances. Make sure your treats are in small, bite-sized pieces that won’t fill your pup up or take long for them to eat.

Requirements

Requirements: 

Temperament: Dogs must be friendly and non-reactive with other dogs and people,
Age: Dogs who are older than 19 weeks.
Vaccine: Rabies vaccine or up-to-date vaccination is required. Please note: Our Oakland West location has an additional vaccine requirement for Bordetella. We strongly recommend this additional vaccine if your class is held in any canine facility, but is only required in Oakland West.
