Basic Obedience Class #3

Third class in a series of six sessions...

IMPORTANT:  THIS CLASS IS FULL...RSVP ONLY IF YOU REGISTERED AND PAID FOR THE CLASS ON  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2014.

Basic Obedience is the foundation for all other dog sports and is offered to dogs 4 months and older.  A dog that works comfortably with his handler is a much easier dog to introduce to Agility, Rally, Flyball, Barn Hunt, K9 Freestyle,Trick Dog , etc.  In addition, a dog that knows what is expected of him/her is a much happier dog in the long run.

In this class you will learn the basic commands....

Sit
Down
Stay
Come
Heeling on a loose lead
Turns

PLUS we will continue into higher commands as the dogs progress.. leave it, recalls, wait, etc.  We also learn several exercises to enhance your dogs focus on you.

IMPORTANT:  All dogs must have all their vaccinations current including Rabies & DHLPP.  Bordatella is also recommended.  Everyone must bring a copy of your dog's records to the first class.  This copy will be filed with your registration form and kept for our insurance requirements.   

We will also introduce you and your dog to the AKC Canine Good Citizen program which is often your dog's first AKC title.  In addition to the basic commands, your dog also needs to learn to be comfortable around other dogs and different people.  The CGC is also a stepping stone for training your dog to become a Therapy Dog. 

As with all our classes, we use the positive training method.  One handler/one dog teams, please.

The class is six sessions long and requires a $60.00 donation for KCA members and $80.00 for non-members.  (the other $20 pays for your KCA membership fee until July 1, 2015)

A minimum of 3 dogs required to sign up to hold this class. 

You will need to bring the following...

Loose fitting collar
6 ft. leash
Lots of small soft treats
Water for your dog
A copy (for KCA to keep) of your dog's up-to-date shot records

    Sorry we couldn't make it today. My son had problems with his car. Leave it and a 20ft sit/stay is going to be a challenge for Sky. She has a very short attention span, but then so dose my son.

    Looking good, everyone. Stays are coming along nicely. See how many times you can use "leave it" this week. See you next week when we will work on sit stay from a 20 ft distance and recall.
