Basic Obedience Series ~ for dogs six months and older ~
This class offers education for the older dog, who can now focus for longer periods of time and who also may be showing some adolescent tendencies that need to be addressed. Some behaviors just aren’t cute when Fluffy gets to 50 lbs!!!
Dogs will learn sit, down, stay, come and stand with distractions and off leash. Walking on a leash without pulling, about turns, automatic sits when you stop - are also taught. Distance is added to all stays and recalls.
Discussion includes socializing, spay/neuter, jumping, destructiveness, handling, feeding, etc. as well as individual problem areas.
This class will also include exercises to prepare your dog for AKC's canine Good Citizens test. Testing may be arranged and performed at SmartyPaws.
You will have written homework of items covered in each weekly session.
