Basic Obedience

The course all adult dogs need! 

This course is where all dogs begin if they are over 20 weeks old. This course helps you get your dog under control and makes them a more enjoyable family pet. It is all about teaching your dog COMPLIANCE, both in your home and out in public around distractions. Even if your dog knows basic things like Sit or Down, this is the course for you to fix any issues you may be having.  It will also help you build your bond with your dog. Do you know that well-behaved dog you see out in public that you wish was your dog? This course is what you need to achieve that. 

If you never do anything else with your dog, be sure you do this course! This is the course that all dogs, regardless of age, need to take. NO DOG IS TOO OLD!

This 6 Week course will cover:

  • Teaching your dog to heel at your side without the use of head halters or food. No more pulling on leash, even around distractions.

  • Getting your dog to turn his attention to you when he's distracted.

  • Sit, Stand, Down, Stay, Place, and Come (on leash until Basic Level II course) - RELIABLY -  the first time they are told, without food being needed.

  • Controlling your dog around other dogs and people.

  • Biting, jumping up, barking.

  • Teaching your dog to accept handling, grooming, vetting.

  • Problem behaviours within the home. 

  • Question period each week for individual problems and lesson plans to take home. 

  • Unlimited phone and email help for the duration of the course, for any problems you may be having with your dog. 

You will need to be able to do a minimum of 40 minutes per day of practice work for this course. 

 

 $295 tax included

Included in the course fee is the required equipment - the training collar, a 6' leather leash, and 15' longe line. They are not guaranteed from chewing and must be purchased separately if chewed. 

Classes will be limited to just 8 dogs. Spots are only reserved when full payment through e-transfer is made. This is non-refundable and non-transferrable because we often turn people away or have a waiting list, and also because you may not miss either weeks one or three of class so we are unable to fill your spot once class starts. 

Please note that proof of Covid vaccine is required to attend classes. Only one person per dog may attend.
