This class is a great all types of puppies as it will help build a solid foundation for a well-round pet.
PREREQUISITES: Puppies must be under 6 months of age.
Obedience Foundation Level 1
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. The basic sit, down, stay, come when called, and learning to walk with a loose leash will be introduced in a fun and informal way. 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.
Obedience Foundation Level 2
This class is a continuation of Obedience Foundation Level 1, by increasing distance, duration, and distractions while expanding and strengthening the skills learned in Level 1. We will also work on refining the heeling exercise, team bonding through games and tricks, and stimulating real world scenarios for a well-mannered pet.
PREREQUISITES: Obedience Foundation Level 1
Obedience Foundation Level 3
