BEGINNER 101
Class limited to 18 students
7 weeks/$130* (for dogs, 5 months age and over)

(*$10 discount for rescue dogs)

The beginner dog training class covers teaching a dog to sit, stay, down, come, and walk politely on leash.

In this beginner dog training class, handlers also work on getting their dog's attention.

Discussions cover crate training, grooming, housebreaking, and behavior problems.

Handlers must be at least 12 years old.

NOTE: If your dog tries to bite or has bitten a person, or lunges/snaps at other dogs, or you are not physically capable of controlling your dog, then a group class is not a suitable environment. It is best to consult with an animal behaviorist.

Student Review
Hugo sprung back to good health and was able to make it to the rally trial on Friday. We had so much fun - he took 2nd place (97 pts) for trial 1 (his wonderful classmate, Jade, took first with 98). and it was my error that cost him 3 pts. He/we earned 95 for rally 2, which wasn't bad but he was a bit sluggish, not bad for a guy who had been pretty ill the beginning of the week.and not bad with a handler who was shaking in her boots. ;) Anyhow, just want to thank you and all of the sportsmen's members for all you do all year long and for the fun 'welcome to trial' goodie bag. (I'm using the water bottle and Hugo is grooving on the toys. Such a sweet thing to do) and for all of your support and wonderful training that Hugo and I are getting under your guidance. i am so happy for my connection to Sportsmen's. Thanks again - Randy
