Chako's six week Pit Bull obedience and owner education class combines basic obedience and manners training with Pit Bull education and responsible dog ownership information. Learn training techniques, work on basic obedience and manners (sit, down, come and loose leash walking). Learn about the type of collars, leashes, and equipment that are good to use for medium to large dogs like Pit Bulls, and ask questions about containment, behavior issues, etc.
You need ONLY RSVP for week 1 (and pay the full amount) to sign up for the entire six week course. (The cost is $88 for ALL six weeks). $88 per Pit Bull or Pit Bull mix (not per person - you may bring a partner or child 12 or older with you). $100 for NON PIT BULLS (Be aware that week 1 has a lot of info pertinent to owners of Pit Bulls and other breeds often discriminated against -- but there is also information pertinent to all dog owners).
NO DOGS on week 1 - humans only (you might want to bring a folding chair)! Bring dogs weeks 2-6. Expect the class on WEEK 1 to run about two hours Weeks 2-6 last about one hour. Week one's class MAY be at a different location since there aren't dogs and we can cozy up indoors. Stay tuned for location info. This meetup description will be updated with those details, so if you don't get an email, and you sign up, CHECK THE MEETUP DESCRIPTION before Week 1. Also make sure to check your SPAM box for meetup messages related to this class series, including materials emailed out a couple of days prior.
Dogs must be 4 months of age by week 2 to participate and have proof of rabies. Bring proof of rabies with you on Week 1 (if your dog is older than 4 months) and on week 2 (if your dog is turning 4 months just before week 2).
