Dog Owners Quiz for a "Good Dog"

Ask yourself a few qestions:

Does my dog come to me every time I call him?

Does my dog wait to walk through the door before me?

Does my dog stay in a sit until released?

Do I walk my dog or does my dog pull me down the block?

Can my dog Heel?

Can my dog go to his bed and lay down on command?

If you answered NO to more than one of these questions, there is NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, you should enroll your dog in one of our up in coming classes.

Puppy Obedience Classes

The focus of this class is using positive reinforcement to begin a good relationship between dog and owner. Puppies are introduced to the "sit", "down", and "come" commands, as well as "loose leash walking" and "leave it". Socialization time is provided with other puppies and people, and puppies are exposed to many new sights and sounds in a positive way.
