1. BASIC CLASSES (w/Graduation):
Basic classes include
graduation at the end. Dogs of all ages can be taught these
AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB (AKC) exercises: HEEL, SIT, SIT STAY, STAND, STAND STAY,
DOWN, DOWN STAY, RECALL and FINISH (and many socialization exercises). In the first
five minutes of the first Basic class, the handlers are taught how to control
their dog on a loose lead and collar.
Handlers need a properly-fitted
collar (some dogs and puppies may be able to use a regular buckle
collar or a "martingale collar"). A 6-ft leash, NOT CHAIN or
RETRACTABLE, is required in order to do all of the
exercises during the entire course.
Please bring current shot records for your
dog to the first class.
Please note: Puppies must be at least 12
weeks old at the start of the first class!
Please call 301-345-6999 and schedule a date and time to
observe one of our classes, this will allow
you to make what Allie calls: "an open-minded decision." After a 15 or 20 minute visit, you will be able to decide if you
want to join us.
note, you will not be allowed to observe the first class of a new class
session. If you just show up at a new class
session, you must join that class, or schedule a time and date to observe.
