RUFF AROUND THE EDGES (BASIC OBEDIENCE)  Weeks: 5 | Fee: $225

Does this describe your dog’s obedience? Then this is the class you’re looking for! Basic commands such as sit, down, stay, leave-it, and how to walk on a loose leash are just a few of the things covered. We’ll also show you how to improve your relationship with your dog while making him a well-mannered member of your family. This is a great basic class for recently adopted dogs, pups who have just completed a puppy class, or for older dogs just needing an obedience “refresher!”
NOTE: There is no free play in this class. Dogs remain on leash at all times.

Prerequisite: No prior training needed; dog must be 5 months or older. ** Dogs with any reactivity issues towards dogs and/or people must complete a private lesson prior to joining a class. Please contact me for a referral to a colleague that can help prepare your dog for a group class.**

FOUNDATION AGILITY  Weeks: 6 | Fee: $225

INSTRUCTOR:  MARGARET HUGHES

Are you brand new to agility? Then this is a great class to start with! You’ll learn all the agility
obstacles, start sequencing and learn some of the basic handling moves to complete a course. Foundation Agility
is the cornerstone of the sport of dog agility. Dogs safely learn to navigate equipment, while also
cultivating confidence, body awareness and a bond with their handler. Taught in a positive environment, dog
agility helps develop a strong working relationship between handler and dog, while at the same time teaching
skills that go far beyond agility.

The goal of this class is to safely introduce a dog and owner team to the world of dog agility.

Prerequisite: Dogs must have completed a previous obedience class;  Absolutely no dog aggressive behavior allowed. Dogs must be 4 months or older.
