INSTRUCTOR: TANYA YARBROUGH
Taught with pack leadership and clicker training, this class teaches the foundation of building the dogs' obedience with duration, distance, and distractions using verbal cues and hand signals. Includes the skills of sit, stay, down, crate training, feet up/off, and heel with left and right switches.
This is a basic obedience class that uses the MARKER METHOD of training to teach the commands: Focus, Sit, Stay, Down, Place and Come. You will also learn to walk your dog without pulling. This class is fun and reward-based. We welcome all vaccinated dogs who are at least 14 weeks of age. Although we do not focus on problem-solving in our basic classes you will have ample time before and after class to discuss your concerns with the instructor. If your dog already knows the basic commands but is unwilling to perform them under distraction we recommend the "Street Obedience" class.
