Dog Obedience

Dog Obedience & Graduate Program

Help your dog be a better "friend" and enroll in our basic course for home or show training. A training collar is used during the class. Dogs do not come the first night. Proof of rabies vaccination is required. Children may train the dog during class as long as an adult guardian is present to take over if needed.

Wednesdays | 6:30-7:30pm | $75 IDR/$85 R per dog Hopkins Park Community Center, Lower Level | January 13 - March 3

Please note: All dogs enrolled in dog obedience will be trained with the training collar. Positive reinforcement is used for correct behavior. Treats are not allowed as part of the training program.

American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen

Transform your dog into an upstanding member of the community! This AKC sponsored program teaches simple obedience skills like sit, down, stay, come, and walk on a loose leash. We also introduce meet and greet techniques and socialization activities to help improve manners and interaction with other people and dogs. Upon successful completion of the 13 step program you may purchase a certificate and title through the AKC. Program is open to all breeds, mixed and purebred. Bring your dog the first night.
