The COVID-19 situation has changed again, but the State of Idaho has given us some guidelines. These guidelines allow us to return to business with a few restrictions. But for the most part we are 100% operational. Please read and familiarize yourself with the state’s guidelines before registering for a class.
Six Weeks to Success Group Obedience Classes
The 2020 Dog Training Schedule Is here and registration starts January 1st. Our goal with every cycle of classes is to help each dog owner become a better dog trainer for their dog. We’ve lined up the obedience classes in a way that will help you progress into each level and finish by passing the AKC Canine Good Citizen(CGC) test.
All classes will be held at the Star Riverwalk Park at 1000 S. Main St. in Star, ID.
Six Week Group Puppy Class
This class starts you off with a good foundation for the next class and to be successful if you choose to take on training by your self. The six week class will teach you all of the basic obedience skills in a 60 minute group setting challenging you and your dog while building a bond with each other. 5-12 months old.
Six Week Group Dog Class
The group dog training class is designed to work with older dogs who have an understanding of the basics, can hold their attention longer than a puppy, or might have developed some bad habits. The six week dog class will review the basics, address problem behaviors, and work towards more advanced obedience skills. 12 months or older.
Six Week Intermediate Obedience Class
The intermediate class builds off of the basic obedience class adding new skills, duration, distance, and distractions. You must have attended one of our basic obedience classes or private lessons to attend the intermediate class.
