Behavior Specialty Classes

When working with dogs, we take into consideration their mind, body, and spirit. It’s important to address physical issues as they can greatly influence behavior. We also prioritize the emotional well-being of dogs, understanding that certain training methods can impact their emotional health and ability to handle stress. The mind is a fascinating place where it all comes together. Check out our behavior specialty page for a list of upcoming classes!

Competition Obedience:

There are three main levels, or classes, of competition in Obedience: Novice, Open, and Utility. Dogs start in the Novice class and advance to Open, then Utility as they master the increasingly more difficult skills. There are many optional classes to choose from that provide exercises that are half-steps between these classes. Here’s a brief rundown of the core classes:

Novice: This class is for dogs that have been introduced to beginner novice and novice obedience exercises, but need more work perfecting them. This is a teaching class that will help solidify your heeling, sit/stand for exam, recall, fronts, finishes and stays. This class is for dogs that are not quite ready for the Show Ready Novice class with its distraction training and perfecting of the exercises. AKC Rules and Regulations will be reviewed for the Beginner Novice and Novice obedience classes.

Open: Dogs in this class need to perform all of the exercises off-leash. In addition to some of the exercises performed in Novice, retrieving and jumping exercises are included.
