Classes

KAOS Dogsports teaches a variety of classes throughout the year, but not all classes listed are held in every session. Sessions run for 7 weeks, and some classes are offered in a 4 week format

Pre-registration is required for all classes.

Classes taught are determined by our waiting lists. If you are interested in any of the classes below, please email the appropriate contact.

Classes are filled from waiting lists from other classes first. For example, if a student starts in Puppy Kindergarten or Level 1 Foundation, their name is kept for the next level and the classes are filled from there to start. Instructors recommend where students should go to next, including when they are ready to go on to another dogsport such as agility or flyball.

Below are the classes that will be offered this winter.

Obedience Classes – Contact: Colette (obedience@kaosdogsports.ca)

Level 1 Foundation Training

Running Wednesdays @ 7:00pm, March 7th – April 25th (7 Weeks)

Open to all ages, all breeds. Building a strong foundation with your dog is like building a house. Without a strong foundation, the house would soon crumble, thus foundation training is important for the family pet, as well as the dog that will go into other dog sports such as flyball, agility, Rally-O and conformation. Basics are sit, down, stay, come when called and learning the heel position. This class is a pre-requisite for every other class that KAOS offers. This is the class that will start to create a bond between dog and handler that is more than just a collar and leash.

PREREQUISITES: none

COST: $120
