Pit-Smart six week basic obedience class

** ONLY RSVP for dogs attending (so 1 RSVP per dog).** No more than 1 dog per person.

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, 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 6:30 p.m. and last one hour (week 1 may go longer). Class held rain or shine.

Instructor: Dawn Capp

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).

    Will there be a basic obedience class near Elk Grove any time in the near future?

      Most of our classes are in the Sacramento area, but we sometimes do try classes in surrounding areas. There aren't plans for the immediate future as we don't have a location to hold classes in Elk Grove (but if you know of any, let us know and we'll look into a class in that area!)

      I'll keep my eyes open. Sacramento area would work, but Yolo was just to far.

    I could not find the location or people, at either the Pell Street or the Front street addy :( .
    I hope perhaps I can attend another 'Initial session' so that I will be caught up before the next class.

    Yes, Marie, this class is still a go. I did not include it in the roster simply because it is already full with a long waiting list!
