Pet Obedience Classes
Riverside offers two pet obedience classes that will help you teach your companion dog obedience for real life. In Beginner I, you will teach your dog the basics, using positive techniques. Beginner II will help you move beyond the basics and prepare your dog to be a canine good citizen.
The Beginner I pet obedience class uses positive training techniques to teach obedience for real life. Whether your dog is just starting its training or in need of remedial education, this class is for you.
We will use play, praise, and lots of treats to teach your dog the basics of “pet etiquette” and to help them become mindful and well-mannered. We will also address any behavioral issues that have cropped up at home. This group class is for all dogs 16 weeks or over.Your dog will learn how to:
- walk on a leash without pulling
- sit and stay
- lie down and stay
- come quickly when called
On the first night of class, we will provide and fit all dogs with an obedience collar. We will show you how to use them correctly. Each week, we will check the collar’s fit and adjust it as necessary.
This class is not appropriate for dogs displaying dog aggression.
Mondays, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
