Obedience Classes

Dream Dogs offers a large selection of group classes for dogs of all ages and skill levels. In addition to standard obedience and agility, we include a variety of mini-clinics and specialty programs designed to keep your dogs (and you!) engaged and excited to learn.


Basic Obedience

Behaviors learned include sit, sit/stay, down, down/stay, stand, loose-leash walking, boundaries, and recall (“come”). We also discuss how to deal with common behavior problems such as jumping, digging, barking, selective listening, and potty training.

Now that your dog knows the basics, it’s time to add some distraction. In this class we concentrate on attention: learn how to build it and maintain it. Behaviors learned include leave it, watch me, go to, stand stay, settle, meeting guests at your door, better house manners, and off-leash sit/stay, down/stay, and recall (“come”). If you like to take your dog to the cafe with you, this class is a must!

Special note: Testing for the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) program is held after the completion of each Intermediate Obedience class. The goals of the CGC program are to teach responsible dog ownership, and to provide basic training and good manners, to dogs and their human companions. The CGC is a 10-step test: all dogs that pass, including purebreds and mixed breeds, receive CGC certification from the American Kennel Club (AKC). Learn more about Canine Good Citizenship.
