Dog Training group obedience classes are a fun way to learn how to train your own dog, with the added advantage of built-in socialization with other dogs and their owners. Puppies are ready to join a group when they have completed their Distemper vaccine program, usually at around 3 months of age. Commands taught are sit, down, stand, stay, loose-leash walking, heel with automatic sit, come with automatic sit, the finish, and leave-it. Normal young dog problems such as jumping, nipping and stealing are covered.
All graduates of group classes can receive a photo of your dog or pup, suitable for framing, wearinga graduation cap, dated, with dog's name and level of accomplishment.
