Members Training

Sky & Susan

Susan and her young Golden Retriever "Sky" have been training in water retrieval.

New Classes Starting Soon

"Dog training classes open to all dogs, pure bred and mixed breeds"

Puppy Development and Obedience Class

This class is for 4 month old puppies. You will learn how to manage, understand, and effectively train your dog to sit, stay, down, and walk on a leash. There will be time for discussion of common problems and concerns.



Beginning Attention

This class provides an introduction to formal attention and is run as a series that starts yearly. It is for the more than casual Obedience/Rally competitor and young dogs are welcome. This class should be taken in addition to Obedience, not in place of it. Concepts of working attention are introduced through a series of games that build in complexity over time, to walk the dog and handler team through the three phases of learning a new behavior; show, reinforce, correct.
