For a list of classes being offered
Our dedicated instructors have years of training, trialing, and teaching experience. All have been to numerous workshops & seminars and continue their ongoing education. Our instructors have successfully competed in many different dog sports, including CKC obedience, scentwork, sprinters, and rally-obedience.
Our club offers four class sessions throughout the year (September- April). Most class sessions are seven weeks in duration, and held on Saturdays: we offer beginner and novice obedience, and beginner and novice scentwork. Looking to train your pet dog, Beginner Obedience is for you!
Our core classes are:
Beginner Obedience -class is a great starting point for any dog, from puppy to old age, whose owner would like to teach their dog basic manners and basic commands in a new social setting. These exercises include, sit, down, stand, stay, come when called, and walk properly on a leash. When time allows, we play games too. As dog ownership isn’t always easy, questions or problems may arise. These instructors may offer assistance outside of class time.
Novice Obedience - for dogs who have been in a puppy or beginner class previously— for anyone who wishes to take their skills a step further. The focus of this class is to polish the basic skills so that dog and handler could enter obedience competition if they want to. The exercises include stays, fronts & finishes, and heel work, all with precision and polish. This is the perfect class for anyone who wishes to compete in Obedience or Rally-O.
Scentwork - The first level of scent work is BEGINNER and starts dogs off with basic scent work training, teaching the dog to find scents and indicate to the owner that the scent has been found; the next level up is NOVICE SCENTWORK which builds on skills developed in the Beginner class.
Other classes we offer are:
Open Obedience -
Puppy/Basic Manners- a good introduction to training for puppies. Large breeds under 5 months and Small/Medium breeds under 6 months.
