PUPPY KINDERGARTEN

The Puppy-K class follows the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program to provide fun, socialization, and basic training skills for puppies. S.T.A.R. stands for Socializing, Training, Activity and Responsibility. The focus is on puppy behavior issues and learning skills for both you and your puppy. S.T.A.R. Puppy Testing and Certification is offered at the end of the 6 week class. This 6 week class meets on Wednesday night for one hour. Please see the Class Schedule for the next available class..

BEGINNER

Beginner classes teach your dog how to come reliably when called, walk politely on a loose leash, heel by your side, pay attention to you, stop nuisance behaviors, and learn the classic sit-down-stay. This 6 week class meets on both Wednesday and Thursday nights for one hour. Please see the Class Schedule for the next available class. Bring your dog’s vaccination records for the first night of class.

INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED

INTERMEDIATE  provides an opportunity to work on the skills learned in the Beginner Class to achieve better precision and to improve attention. Longer stays, faster recalls, and some hand signals are taught using a fun and positive approach. This is also the class where Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog exercises are taught. This 6 week class meets on Thursday night for one hour. See the Class Schedule for the next available class.

ADVANCED is for dogs who have completed Intermediate or who are proficient in Intermediate skills as determined by Loretta. This class continues to work on Therapy Dog exercises and begins preparation for Novice level competition, Beginner Novice and Rally. This 6 week class meets on Thursday night for one hour. See the Class Schedule for the next available class.

RALLY

This Rally class teaches you how to read and perform Rally signs. Each week a new group of signs will be broken down according to AKC regulations. You and your dog will practice as a group and at the end of each class a mini run will be setup with the signs used during that class.  This 6 week class meets on Wednesday night for one hour. See the Class Schedule for the next available class.

OBEDIENCE COMPETITION

You and your dog can prepare to compete at AKC obedience trials or just come out and have fun training. Here you will work on jumping skills, retrieving skills, scent discrimination, and directional exercises. This 6 week class meets on Tuesday night with one hour for AKC Utility training, followed by one hour for AKC Open training, followed by one hour for AKC Novice training. These classes run continuously and Barb will notify you of your start date.
