Pit-Smart Basic Obedience Course: six weeks, 2/23 start date

  • Feb 23, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This session is full: next course begins April http://www.meetup.com/pitbulls/events/163064632/

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

Chako's six week Pit Bull obedience and owner education course 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 10:30 a.m. and lasts 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 directly from Chako Pit Bull Rescue get this course for half the price (manually adjust price when you RSVP and make sure to note what dog you adopted directly from Chako).

Instructors: Jackie Marshall

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).

    Hey everyone, my puppy (Dyson) broke his leg a few days ago. We are waiting to hear back about when he can get surgery scheduled with an orthopedic surgeon. Because of this, we are unable to continue the obedience class (he is on strict crate/lap rest). It was good meeting all of you and your dogs though! *Dawn, I emailed you as well regarding this.

    I see the class is full--is there a waiting list? It says dogs adopted through Chako get the class for half price but we were told Frankie (adopted Oct 2013) could do the class for free? We are eager to participate in the class and would like some more info!

    I adopted a yr old female rescue over a month ago. She has underlining trust issues especially with men and her memories seem to cloud her thought process. She is very sweet and caught on quickly with sit. Do you think this would be something helpful for her?

    February 2, 2014

    • Dawn

      I think a basic class would be just fine for her; be sure to let the instructor know any issues she has.

    My 3 year old girl, Koni is the sweetest thing at home, obedient, gentle and a good listener. When we go outside on the leash or in the car she is a completely different dog. She barks constantly, refuses to listen and is hard to control. I'm very anxious to be able to take her for long walks. I walk up to 5 miles daily and I am deaf. Having my girl with me would be amazing and a relief. I'm very excited for these classes.
    Because I am deaf ( I wear an aid in one ear for sound but must read lips) I'm hoping the classes won't be too hard to follow.

      There may be some times when it might be but let the instructor know. There is a p.a. System we can set up near you and a helper may be able to stand near you and restate instructions so you can read lips.

    I adopted Dyson from Front Street Shelter in December and got a voucher for free classes. He is finally old enough for his rabies shot tomorrow, so I am ready to sign up. Do I need to bring the voucher and receipt with me to the class? Pay first and get a refund? How does this work?

    January 24, 2014

    • Dawn

      Just read and pay $1. Bring voucher first week.
