  • February 16, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

** ONLY RSVP for dogs attending (so 1 RSVP per dog).** No more than 1 dog per person. Class is limited to 8 students. (Note: Total attendee list includes instructors and assistants, so total RSVP count may be greater than 8).

Chako's Pit Bull obedience and owner education course combines basic obedience and manners training with Pit Bull education and responsible dog ownership information. This course always runs SIX weeks long, so please mark your calendars in advance (in the event a class has to be postponed due to instructor illness, the course will still run six weeks total). 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. 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.

Instructor: Apprentice trainer Joni Moore (note: instructors may be subject to change).

By participating in this class, you release Chako Pit Bull Rescue and its officers, agents, volunteers, and representatives from liability for any injury that you or your dog may sustain, including but not limited to injuries cased by the negligence of any officer, agent, volunteer, or representative of Chako Pit Bull Rescue. Please keep a safe distance between dogs at all times during class and use equipment that is secure and properly backed up (Week 1 will discuss equipment options).

Location: 4791 Pell Drive, Sacramento, CA

    It was great to see you all out there this morning! I always love to hear Dawn speak at these orientations. You learn so much about the breed. Looking forward to getting started next Sunday.If you ever have any questions or concerns, jot them down and bring them along. We can discuss after class. Thanks again!

    I'm guessing you will discuss in our first meeting but don't we need some sort of dual collar or leash set up for class?

    I inadvertently paid for this class and also the intermediate one too. Can I get a refund on this payment. We have already completed the beginning class.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
