Group Obedience Classes

 

This is our most popular option. Classes meet once a week for 45 minutes. Small class size means personal attention. All breeds and ages are welcome. Dogs/pups must have proof of age appropriate vaccinations before participating in any class. We also recommend Bordetella vaccine for dogs over 12 weeks of age.

Basic Obedience
Pictrure of dog Training

Class meets once per week for 7 weeks. Dogs and puppies who have been in the home for at least two weeks and have received at least two sets of vaccinations are welcome. The class covers on-leash basic obedience. This includes loose leash walking, wait, sit, down, come, stay, and a few extras. Emphasis is placed on leadership and developing a relationship with your dog. Classes are helpful for socialization and learning manners. The fee is $85.00 by check or cash & $87.50 by credit card for the 7 week class.

PLEASE NOTE: Humans (without dogs) come the first week with proof of vaccines. Dogs come the second week to join in the fun. Check our calendar for upcoming classes or email training@circletail.org.

Remedial Obedience

This is a drop-in class that meets the first 4 Saturdays of the month from 12:30p.m. - 1:15pm. It is beneficial for the dog and handler to have a working knowledge of basic obedience. This class is an opportunity to practice obedience around various distractions and different dogs and people. Agility activities are frequently incorporated into class. It is a good way to build your dog's confidence. Pay as you go, $5/ session.
