Is your dog a good citizen when you’re out in public? Or, are you too concerned to take him out with you? Who rules your home?
Obedience lessons with Frontier K9 can help you gain confidence that you can take your pup with you to the park or shopping at local stores. We strive for positive reinforcement to encourage and reward good behavior and good manners, while making each lesson enjoyable for everyone.
Obedience classes can cover the basics with manners and good behavior, following the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) Canine Good Citizen tests, and puppy obedience. I like to incorporate different environments as we see progress to ensure your canine partner is confident wherever he goes with you. Locations include your home, my farm, local parks and even local stores that allow dogs.
These obedience lessons are custom formatted to fit your needs and your dog’s needs. We can work one-on-one, with a second dog, or in a group setting. After our evaluation meeting, I will discuss a plan that I think will fit your dog’s needs, your desires, your family’s abilities and your budget. We work as a team, and this means I want your input to make sure you’re getting the most out of each lesson.
THINGS YOU’LL NEED FOR EACH CLASS
I strive for positive reinforcement, so be sure to bring lots of treats!!
I also recommend:
+ A flat collar to begin (we will discuss use of other types of collars at a later time, if needed)
+ A favorite toy or two
+ Water for you and water for your dog
+ Your dog’s own water bowl (to keep germs at bay)
+ Willingness to listen and learn
+ Openness to have fun!
Lessons will last no more than 60 minutes at a time, though sometimes we’ll end early if we can end on a good note!
