OBEDIENCE TRAINING

Obedience Training-Intro
The benefits of obedience training far outweigh the short period of time spent in training class and working with your dog. Not only do you train your dog to respond to basic obedience commands, you learn how to communicate with your companion. The basic obedience training commands are heel, sit, stay, come, down.

For folks who may have an interest, there are numerous other Obedience Training Clubs around the city which take Obedience Training to the competitive level, which incorporates the basic commands off-lead up to scent discrimination and hand signals. While this is not for everyone, it is a lot of fun for those who are interested.

For further information concerning basic obedience training, please contact our Clinic or do an on-line search.

All Breed Obedience Training Club
