Gully from our summer 2018 Obedience Level 1 Class.
Our Obedience Level 1 Class is the first obedience class for puppies after the Puppy Preschool Class or if the dog is an adult of any age and has never taken an obedience class before. This class covers the basics of obedience and good behavior. Your dog will have great manners after finishing this class!
A few of the things you and your dog will learn in this class:
→ Basics of dog psychology (how dogs learn - classical and operant conditioning)
→ Sit, down, stand and heel on command with verbal and hand signals
→ Walking on a loose leash
→ Coming when called
→ Reaction to distraction/loud noises
→ Leave it
→ We will also cover the basics of how to deal with common behavioral challenges such as chewing, house training, crate training, digging, barking, nipping and jumping.
This class is held once a week for 5 weeks. Each session is 1 hour long. Please see the registration page for the available class times.
Be sure to check out our Terms and Conditions page for information regarding registration policies, health requirements, etc.
At Canine Coaching Institute, LLC we are force, pain, fear and dominance free which means that we do not use tools or methods that inflict physical or psychological pain or discomfort on a dog. Instead we focus on positive reinforcement of desired behaviors using rewards such as treats, praise and toys. This lays a foundation for trust between the handler and the dog and will help promote a spirit of cooperation in the relationship. We offer private in-home training, group classes, minor to moderate behavioral training and specialty training such as therapy and service dog training. We pride ourselves in being flexible trainers that can find ways to work with practically any type of dog.
