In this 5-week course, your child will learn positive reinforcements to teach basic obedience commands to your dog such as sit, stay, down, come, and wait.

Class Experience

  • Students will learn how to train their dogs in the commands of watch me, sit/down, take it/leave it, wait, drop/give, stay/come, loose leash walking, and down/down stay.
Space is needed to train dogs. Also, dogs are unpredictable and may not always be ready to learn. Teacher is an AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator and  tester observer with Alliance of Therapy Dogs and has trained and certified five therapy dogs of her own.

Frequency: available upon request
Details: The student must achieve 5 out of 5 commands done correctly with their dog. On the final session, the student and dog must complete specific skills for graduation.
Dog, treats, collar, leash, 15-20 foot long lead, and clicker. Dog collars ($5-$10), leashes ($10-$20), long leashes ($10-$20) and clickers ($2-5) may be purchases online or at a pet store. The collar and leash the dog currently has may be appropriate, but for pulling, another collar or leash may be suggested but not mandatory. A rope or two leashes tied together may be used in place of a long lead. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
It is recommended puppies be at least 4 months old. Dogs and puppies are unpredictable and train differently. Space is needed to train.
