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 an hour and a half to two hours, Weeks 2-6 last about one hour.
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).
Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. (Week 1 begins at 8:30 a.m.) and last one hour (week 1 will run approximately 1.5 to 2 hours). Class held rain or shine since we have a shaded overpass.
Dogs adopted from Chako Pit Bull Rescue get the class for free (but you still must enter $1 or it won't let you RSVP; please note the dog you adopted when RSVPing). Dogs adopted from the Front Street Shelter or County Bradshaw shelter (in either 2012 or 2013) get the classes for $65 (manually adjust the amount when you RSVP and put a note why so your RSVP gets approved).
Instructors: Jackie Marshall with apprentice Shannon
