Puppy Obedience is for dogs under 6 months of age and starts the learning process for being a well behaved and social dog. It incorporates the basics of sit, down, come, wait, walking on a leash, mouthing, and manners.
Beginner Obedience is for dogs 6 months of age and older and has the same goals as puppy obedience but also incorporates more distractions. Better dog obedience.
Level 2 Obedience goes beyond the beginner level with added skills and commands. It also introduces the 10 exercises that enable the handler and dog to complete a Canine Good Neighbour Test or to move on to Rally Obedience.
Rally Obedience teaches dogs and their owners/handlers the signs and commands, courses, and moves of this type of obedience. The dogs and their owners/handlers work together, building a bond while they learn as a team.
Agility is an obstacle course sport for dogs and their owners/handlers that also builds a great relationship as a team. The skills worked on assist in learning to handle agility obstacles and build your dogs confidence. Dogs must be friendly, able to get along with other dogs & people, have completed a beginner course of obedience, and be 1 year of age.
"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, & they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day."
"No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you feel rich."
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
