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 vaccine and up-to-date DHLPP/DHPP are required. We strongly prefer proof of vaccines on paper (with vaccine date mentioned) versus the rabies tag on collar. Please note: Our Oakland West location also requires proof of Bordetella vaccination.

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.

We require at least one adult per enrolled puppy. We encourage the whole family attend the class together but if children are three years or younger, a second adult must be present.

Requirements

Requirements: 

Temperament: Dogs must be friendly and non-reactive with other dogs and people.

Age: 19 weeks or older.

Vaccine: Proof of rabies vaccine and up-to-date DHLPP/DHPP are required.
