Grade 1 is our obedience training program that will enable you to teach manners and listening skills to your 4-legged family member. It is for dogs who have attended the Puppy Head Start program or are just starting their obedience training. Dogs must be between the ages of 4 - 7 months of age to participate. This 9 week course has a total class time of 14.5 hours. Most lessons last 1.5 hours and include a question and answer period. Your dog will learn to:

  • Come the first time every time, even when distracted – a potentially life-saving lesson!
  • Walk on a leash happily without pulling you
  • Greet your guests politely
  • Not jump up on people
  • Sit and stay even when distracted
  • Lie down and stay even with distractions
  • Play and then settle down on command
