Grade 1 is our obedience training class that enables the dog owner to gain control over the family dog. It is for dogs who have attended the Puppy Head Start program or are just starting their obedience training. Dogs must be between the ages of 4 - 7 months to participate. This 9 week course has a total class time of 14.5 hours. Most lessons last 1.5 hours and include a question and answer period. Your dog learns to:

  • Come the first time every time, even when distracted – a potentially life-saving lesson!
  • Sit while greeting guests
  • Not jump up on people
  • Sit and stay even when distracted
  • Lie down and stay even with distractions
  • Walk on a leash happily without pulling you
  • Play and then settle down on command
