Including 1 theory evening
We have designed our obedience training class for people who want a polite, well-adjusted dog who is welcome everywhere. Typical students are graduates from our puppy class, dogs who have been rehomed or adopted longer than six weeks ago (for shorter periods, your dog might benefit from the shelter dog advice package), or ‘standard’ family dogs. We adapt the level of each exercise to each individual participants.
The class is suitable for all dogs over five months of age provided they are temperamentally suited for group training: with no excessive barking, aggression or fearfulness. We can help dogs with these problems more effectively through private classes (pick “behaviour advice or private training” under “enlisting for course” in the registration form.).
If you are curious about what our past obedience students have to say about the course, check our testimonials page (look for the word (‘obedience’).
At OhMyDog!, all obedience classes focus on building and maintaining a great bond with your dog.
We will help you guide your dog into becoming a pleasant companion, even at times of distraction or excitement, without using any intimidation or force.
We sprinkle each lesson with real-life and fun elements, to keep it interesting for you and your dog.
Naturally, you will only get the maximum out of the course if you attend every lesson, and practice, practice, practice between lessons. Carnegie Hall and all that.
Our group obedience lessons are designed for owners who want to improve their dog’s obedience training skills like give them an impeccable recall or a reliable leave it. If you have concerns about your dog’s behaviour (e.g. barking, reactivity, fearfulness, prey drive) and are not sure group lessons are suitable, send us a mail. We will advise you on the best training option for your dog – be it through group training, private training or behaviour therapy. We have qualified private trainers/behaviour therapists on staff who can help. This is our process to help steer you in the direct direction.
