Beginner Training

6 months of age and older

Beginner training is aimed at training you to train your dog. Emphasis is on the training needed to make the dog a good companion: walk on a loose leash, sit, stand, down, stay and come when called.

You must pass Beginner in order to advance to CGC, Intermediate or Performance Readiness. The test includes a 30 second sit (on leash), a 30 second down (on leash), and controlled walking on a LOOSE leash. The dog must not show aggression towards other dogs or towards people.

      ***Kids & Dogs - FUN FUN FUN!

      The DMOTC is offering a Beginner Dog Obedience Class for Children only! This class follows our current Beginner course, but we also throw in some fun games and tricks.

      This is a great introduction for kids to learn how to develop a bond with their dog and learn important pet responsibilities too! Parents must stay during the class, but the kids will do all the work!

    • For kids ages 12 and up
    • Bring a small toy, a variety of small, soft treats and a hungry dog!


     
  • Guarantee a spot in class - preregister online with PayPal. If you are not preregistered, and class is not full, come 20 minutes prior to sign-up time.
  • Bring your dog, a buckle collar, leash (no retractable leads).
  • Bring soft treats
  • BRING PROOF of current DHLP/Parvo vaccinations, and current rabies certificate. **These records are required by law and must be submitted each time you take a class, even if you have submitted them for a previous class.
