   By Popular Demand TWO NEW classes

starting Friday April 14th  with Jennifer Mogren

HO10 Home Obedience Refresher at 7pm

Does your dog still pull on the leash or need “reminders” on walks?  Does your dog still get too excited on the sit for greeting?   How about coming on the first command, and staying in place regardless of the distractions? Do those exercises need work?  Then this is the class for YOU!

By popular request, we have created a NEW class – Home Obedience Refresher for families who have attended at least one session of puppy or obedience classes with us and need to their sharpen skills before summer fun begins.   It’s for dogs who aren’t quite ready to move to a higher level class (such as Advanced Home Obedience or Agility).  Also great for dogs who ARE attending a higher level class, but need more work on the basics in a class environment.

Feel free to double up on your classes and see faster progress as you attended your regular class and then re-inforce your lessons with this class.

We’re so excited to get this class going, we’re offering a $40 savings, which means the class will cost $135 when you use the code SAVE40 to enroll.   NOTE:  You must register by April 10 in order to use this coupon code.  Coupons may not be combined or used with multi-class packages.

DS1 Introduction to Dog Sports at 8pm

Join us for this fun introduction to dog sports!  This class is perfect for students who want to try out different activities with their dogs. Every week the class will warm up with a quick review of obedience skills and then apply them to a variety of dog sports and activities, including Rally Obedience (follow the course and perform obedience commands at each station), Agility (have fun with an introduction to some of the equipment), Competition Obedience (learn about increasing attention, shaping behaviors such as retrieving) plus a few Tricks and Games (including Tic-Tac-Toe with dogs and humans).

* The American Kennel Club is now offering four levels of Trick Dog Titles that you can earn with your purebred and mixed breed dogs.  Testing/certification may be administered by an AKC CGC Evaluator, and will be conducted at your final class!  For more info:  http://www.akc.org/trick-dog/

These classes are for dogs with good focus and control.  Classes are for fun (not just titles) and are open to purebred and mixed breed dogs.  No aggressive or out-of-control dogs are permitted, so previous obedience classes are strongly recommended.   The cost for each 3-week, 90-minute class is $100 and includes certification/testing paperwork at the final class.  (Students who desire the AKC certificate will need to pay the $20 fee and send their paperwork to the AKC. Performer level titles require a video submission, per the AKC.) Week one is learning the tricks, Week two is polishing your tricks and Week three is an evaluation for your certificate.
