Obedience Classes-- Group

Our obedience classes are held as a group to help your dog deal with the distraction of other dogs, to help the dogs learn how to behave in a group environment and so that as owners you can help support and encourage each other. 

Your dog must be at least 5 months old.

  

Commands your dog will learn both on and off leash:

 

  • Heel- to walk calmly at your left side, pacing himself to your speed,

  • enjoying the scenery, but paying attention to you   

  • Automatic sit- to sit automatically at heel when you stop walking.

 

  • Sit- to sit instantly on one command.

 

  • Down- to lie down instantly on one command.

 

  • Stay-to stay in a sitting, lying or standing position.

 

  • Come- to come instantly on one command.

 

  • Finish- to circle around into the heel position.

 

  • Stand for exam- to stand motionless while being examined (your vet will love you!)

------Online Zoom Obedience classes-----
Your dog must be 3 months old to join this class.

This will cover all our basic commands on and off leash.

During our zoom meetings we will have instruction of the method and going through videos to troubleshoot what everyone has been doing throughout the week. Completion of this class will allow you graduation status and will allow for attendance in the group class to get the distraction portion of the class.
 

This is perfect for people with puppies that struggle to stay focused for long amounts of times, for puppies not yet old enough to get out and about due to vaccination status, people who cannot or do not want to wait for an IN person class ( will hold in person classes in Spring and Fall in Idaho Falls) or perfect for those that are too far away to make an in person class( or graduates that have moved and want to bring another puppy through!)
