Basic Obedience Training

Did you get a new puppy, adopt an older dog, or have never done training with your dog? Starting with Basic Obedience Training is a great way to set your dog up for success and provides a foundation for more advanced training. Teaching the basics is a fun and important step to help establish a strong and positive relationship between a dog and owner, as well as reducing problem behaviours such as aggression or destructiveness.

Our Basic Obedience Level 1 Training program is a group class that teaches dogs a variety of commands including Sit, Stay, Release, Heel, Down, Place and Recall. The class also covers basic problem behaviours such as jumping up.

Our Basic Obedience Level 2 allows you to take Level 1 commands to the next level with more distance, duration and distractions as well as Canine Good Neighbour training in preparation of certification.

Both classes have a maximum of 6 dog participants.
