Basic Obedience (for dogs 5 months and older)
Content: This 6-week session is geared toward the adolescent or adult dog that is just beginning training. You will learn to teach your dog to be attentive, sit, come when called, walk politely on leash, down and stay. Your dog will "unlearn" undesirable habits and replace them with good ones. Management skills and problem solving will also be discussed.

Prerequisite: Dogs must be age-appropriately vaccinated; Dogs must be healthy including being free from internal and external parasites (including fleas, ticks, worms, etc).
Schedule: Classes meet once a week for 6 consecutive weeks on the same day of the week and at the same time all 6 weeks unless otherwise noted. Classes are 45 minutes in length.
Week 1 of Class: The first week of class is for HUMANS ONLY - NO DOGS.
