|Obedience classes are open to any dog of any breed. A dog does not need to be a purebred to be enrolled in training classes. However, for the safety of the other handlers and dogs, those dogs which the instructor deem too dangerous or uncontrollable, will not be permitted to enroll.
Generally, dogs should be at least 4 months of age before starting obedience classes. However, some dogs may be ready at a slightly earlier age. If you have a dog that is younger than 4 months, which you desire to start in class, it is suggested that you discuss your dog's readiness with the club trainer. Older dogs are trainable too! Many dogs have started and successfully trained after the age of 8 years.
The club instructor does not train the dog. The training is done by the handler (the person who brings the dog to class) following the direction of the club instructor. It is very important that the same person handles the dog in class and at home during the 6-week basic course. While young children have successfully handled and trained dogs, we prefer handlers to be at least 12 years of age. Generally, after the dog has completed training and learned the commands, anyone may handle him and expect him to respond.
Class sizes are limited to approximately 6-8 dogs. After classes are organized, your place cannot be filled. Therefore, the club policy is not to refund any fees for missed or unattended classes. Consideration will be given in the event of extraordinary circumstances. A non refundable deposit is required upon registration.
Reminder: Due to class size limits, club members must register for classes. Contact the instructor prior to start date.
