For all dogs completing Puppy or Basic
Adventure Dog is a hands-on outdoor training class. In this class we focus on socialization. You will learn how to keep your dog attentive to you at all times during all exercises. (Even in highly distracting environments!) We will focus on all of our basic obedience. In addition we will work on teaching your dogs not to jump up on people, chase bikes, roller blades or any other behavior that keeps your pet from being a joyful companion.
The goal of this class is to have well balanced dogs that are a pleasure to take walking, jogging, hiking, camping, boating or many other outdoor activities.
What is a well balanced dog?
A well-balanced dog is a dog that you can take into any situation and he she will be well behaved and obedient - no matter what the distractions are!
In this class we will be meeting at a different place each week. Activities will include walking and light hiking along an easy trail.

This class is the next step after Intermediate class. Rally is a fun class inspired by the American Kennel Club. Quoted from the AKC website; "AKC Rally is the new dog sport that is taking the nation by storm, a successful stepping stone from the AKC Canine Good Citizen program to the world of obedience or agility. Rally offers both the dogs and handlers an experience that is fun and energizing. The canine team moves at their own pace, very similar to rally style auto racing. Rally was designed with the traditional pet owner in mind, but it can still be very challenging for those who enjoy higher levels of competition." To learn more visit AKC.org
