Life-saving obedience for any dog!

Grade 1 is our obedience training class that enables the dog owner to gain control over the family dog. It is for dogs who have attended the Puppy Head Start program or are just starting their obedience training. 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. All family members are welcome to attend. Your dog learns to:

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