HO2 Beginning Home Obedience

Classes meet once a week for an hour for six consecutive weeks. You are registering for a particular day and hour when you sign up. Should life get in the way and you miss a class, you will work with your instructor and the office staff to find a suitable make-up class.

You do not bring your dog to the first class. It is for humans only to learn about our training philosophy, equipment choices, discuss concerns, etc.

 

For dogs over 5 months of age, and graduates of our Puppy Manners class. Age range is flexible depending on a number of factors. If you are uncertain as to whether or not this is the best class for your puppy/dog, contact the office.

This class works on basic obedience & control, including walking on a loose leash, sit, down & stand stay, come, sit for greeting, go to a rug & lie down. Graduates of this class will learn to respond on the first command!

For dogs with little or no formal training and dogs who’ve done little or no training away from home. Basic behavior problems are addressed in this class. This class is also appropriate for dogs who perform well at home, but are inconsistent around distractions.

 

Here are some guidelines to help you know if Beginning Home Obedience is right for your dog:

  •  You have to repeat commands. We do not believe in repeating commands. Nagging dogs is like nagging children or spouses...and you know how well that works!
  •  You say "No" a lot. We don't believe in saying "no" or yelling at dogs. It might work temporarily, but it doesn't teach the dog what you really want him to do in the first place!
  •  Your dog pulls on the leash. We teach dogs how to walk beside you without pulling and to sit when you stop walking - all on the first command.
  •  Your dog won't come when called. We will show you how to train a reliable recall - and only say "come" one time!
  •  Your dog can't "stay" around distractions. Sit-stay, down-stay and stand-stay with distractions are introduced in our Beginning Home Obedience classes.
  •  You're experiencing behavior issues.

We will help you find the best solution for barking, chewing, digging, jumping up, and other common problems. If most of the above comments apply to you and your dog, then Beginning Home Obedience is for you! If you and your dog are more advanced than this, check out Advanced Home Obedience!

Your entire family is encouraged to attend all of the classes with your dog. However, very young children and/or children with very short attention spans may find the discussion and demonstration format of the course difficult to sit quietly for an hour.
