Basic Dog Obedience

The basic dog obedience course is six weeks long and meets weekly for 75 minutes and you will need to commit about 30 minutes a day of training homework with your dog. During the course, you will learn the skills needed to most effectively and efficiently communicate in a language your dog understands. Dogs must be at least 5½ months old to attend this course. The curriculum is challenging, and the dogs need to be mentally, emotionally, and socially developed enough to succeed.

At the end of the course, your dog will have accomplished:

  • Learning to pay attention to you in a distractible environment
  • Sit and down
  • Sit stay and down stay at a distance of 30 feet for one minute
  • Boundary stay at a distance of 30 feet for two minutes
  • Come when called
  • Heeling with turns, sitting when stopping, and heeling past other dogs
  • Enter and exit doors with permission
  • Appropriate greetings of strangers and other dogs
  • Increased dog and people socialization
  • Limit jumping, barking, mouthing, and digging

Additional discussions critical to responsible dog ownership include understanding how dogs learn, equipment education, understanding your dog’s needs, interpreting dog behavior and body language, how to safely greet new dogs, and keeping you and your dog safe around other dogs. 

The course is taught by Paula Yunko, a certified pet dog trainer/dog obedience class instructor, Association of Professional Dog Trainers member with more than 15 years of experience working with many different breeds, species, and behavioral issues. Upon registering, you will be sent a waiver and will need to provide a copy of vet records.
