Naughty to Nice: Manners Thru Games

6 weeks, running Wednesdays starting February 1, 2021 at 8:00pm.

Whether you have a new puppy or want to teach an ‘old dog’ new tricks, this class is for you! Learn how to train new skills, in short, game based, training sessions. We will teach you and your dog valuable life skills including leave it, recalls, stays with duration, engagement, listening through arousal, loose leash walking, crate training, greeting people with four paws on the floor and more, all in a fun, game based environment! This class is a great class for pet families or if you want to do any dogsports, like agility, rally or flyball too, as it focuses on building a solid foundation.

Canine Fun 101

6 weeks, running Saturdays starting January 30, 2021 at 10:30 am.

This class is an introduction to all that we do with our own dogs. The class is divided into working stations with foundation obedience being one of the stations every week. Other stations include how to play, learning to jump, rear end awareness, tunnels, barrels, targeting and some introductory skills used for flyball and disc. Most dogs and handlers benefit from having Foundation Level 1 first, but some can go into this class with prior training elsewhere or with an experienced handler.

Level 1 Obedience

6 weeks, running Sundays starting January 31, 2021 at 12:30pm and Mondays starting February 1, 2021 at 6:30pm.

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.
