Basic Obedience

The K-9 Clinic’s obedience series is a four-level, four-week program that emphasizes socialization and handler control. Obedience classes are the foundation for all specialty training and will cover heeling, sitting, recalling and staying down with major distractions. The goal of the obedience program is for the handler to have control of his or her dog while performing off-leash work. If you have questions about which class to join, please contact us at the clinic.

good-dogs-downThe Basic Obedience Class is designed for the new handler and dog. It is a basic class for non-aggressive dogs with little to no obedience, and teaches the fundamentals of heel, sit, down, down stay and recall commands. Held in four-week sessions, each week builds on the prior week’s topics. Basic Obedience classes are held on Saturdays at 11:00AM. Please call us at The K-9 Clinic with any questions about the program and/or if you believe that your dog may need to be evaluated for aggressive behavior. Dogs and handlers are evaluated at the end of the four-week session for progression to the next level of obedience. See The K-9 Clinic calendar for upcoming classes.
