Group Class Training Application Form

Where and When

Classes are tentatively scheduled for November.  Please contact us for further details.

Classes are one hour.  However, we are pleased to stay after class to help you and your dog if needed.  There are 7 training sessions, with the AKC CGC test on week 8.  AKC Good Citizen Test fee is included.

Call 386-325-3378 to have any questions answered.

What Skills will I learn to teach my dog in this class?

Learning is Fun for you and your dog, and through Positive Reinforcement techniques we will show you how to open communication with your dog that you never thought was possible.  Skills such as Sit on command, Loose Lead Heeling, Down, Stay, and Recall. Walking through a crowd, sitting quietly while your away, touching your dog's feet and brushing are other skills we will work on. We will even practice by doing a Buffalo Town Walk where we show off your dog’s new skills! You and your dog will be able to take the AKC Canine Good Citizen test on week 8 and those that pass can apply for the AKC CGC certificate.
 

Equipment needed Prior to starting Class:
 
1.) 6' leather lead with good quality snap , these leads last for Years and have high quality snaps for safety Plus they are much more comfortable and easier on your hands than nylon. Nylon leads are acceptable, but not recommended.
 
2.) Collars: Please call us to discuss the best type of collar for your dog. We personally like nylon "slip collars" or Rolled leather buckle collars. We do allow chain "training collars" however they must fit correctly (measure your dog's neck circumference and add 3"). We do not recommend or allow prong collars.
 
3.) Rewards Bag- similar to a fanny pack these are a vital part of our positive rewards based training program. This is a Very Important training aid that makes it possible to reward your dog at the correct time. These are available from Canine Companions - two types that range from $14.00 to $25.00 plus tax.
 
For collars and leads we suggest the following company:  J&J Dog Supplies

Class Absence / Refunds:
 
Class attendance is essential to the training process. Each class builds on the next so class absences cannot be made up during the regular training sessions. If possible we will offer private make up classes at a reasonable fee at the trainers convenience. 
 
Because our classes are limited to 10 participants, we cannot offer a refund once class has started. We will offer a discount on an additional class to those who cannot complete classes signed up for but not completed.
 
Females in season cannot participate in class.  If your dog comes in season during class, a discount on an additional class will be offered. 
 
Classes will be cancelled due to weather if the Florida Department of Transportation (FlaDOT) has posted limited driving warnings.  Such class cancellations will be made up the following week, based upon weather conditions.

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. Those who complete this class will see a marked improvement in their dogs focus and heeling and should be ready to compete in AKC Novice Rally if they so choose.
