Upcoming Dog Training at Canine To Five
We have several new classes coming up at Canine To Five, and we’d love to have you join us!
Our first class is our POTTY TRAINING SEMINAR this Thursday, August 13, at 7:30 p.m. Our Potty Training Seminar is a one-time one-hour session for people only covering all aspects of potty training a dog of any age. You will learn about how scheduling, feeding, and crating impacts your potty training success and troubleshoot any issues you and your dog may be having. The cost for this seminar is $12.
Our BASIC OBEDIENCE CLASS starts Wednesday, September 2, at 7:30 p.m. This 6 week class meets for one hour every Wednesday, and the cost is $125. Basic Obedience covers simple behaviors such as sit, down, stay, come when called, walking on a loose leash, leave it, and drop it. Behavioral issues like chewing, jumping, and nipping are covered as well. In this course we aim for 100% reliability, which means that your dog listens to you the first time every time. The added distraction of the other dogs in class helps your dog learn to listen to you in any environment.
Our ADVANCED OBEDIENCE CLASS starts Tuesday, September 1, at 7:30 p.m. This 6 week class meets for one hour every Tuesday, and the cost is $110 for graduates of our BASIC class, and $130 for new training clients. In Advanced Obedience, you and your dog will learn more challenging behaviors like heel, wait, and place, and you will also increase the difficulty level of stay and come when called by adding more distance and distractions. In addition, you will also work on proofing the behaviors your dog already knows in order to maintain 100% reliability.
Our CANINE GOOD CITIZEN CLASS starts Tuesday, October 13. This 6 week class meets Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:00 p.m., and the cost is $110 for graduates of our ADVANCED class, and $130 for new training clients. The CGC class will prepare you and your dog to pass the AKC CGC test. With guidance in class and practice at home your dog should be able to pass the following 10 items beyond expectations:
