  • 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 $90 for ALL six weeks). $90 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). Dogs adopted directly from a Chako foster home get this class for 50% (manually adjust amount and indicate which Chako dog you adopted).

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

      Liberty there aren't great ways to make it up but you can ask Joni the instructor if she can take a few moments to catch you up. Many places, like spca, do require attendance at the first two weeks to continue (and don't offer refunds). We try to be a bit more flexible but you will have to pay a bit of catch up and you will be behind a bit on week 3 unless your dog already has some decent basic obedience. We look forward to seeing you both.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
