American Canine Training is now offering our “Not So Basic” basic obedience class.  This course provides tips for improving canine manners including no digging, no barking, no jumping and elimination of all other naughty dog habits.  It also offers basic obedience commands including sit, down, stay, leave-it, come, and how to walk on leash.  To keep things fresh, all commands are then used in conjunction with an introduction to agility equipment.  Classes are based on the dog’s knowledge, not age or size, and are designed for dogs with little or no formal education.  For questions regarding the classes, please feel free to visit or call Kathy at 702-893-0300.

Week #1: Dogs are excused from Week One, but their parents will learn the concepts of positive reinforcement and will be given a list of things needed for the duration of the session. Parents will also learn techniques for dealing with issues like barking, digging, destruction, jumping and other doggie no-no’s.

Week #2: This class teaches the dog to focus on the pet-parent with the name game which is the cornerstone to a well-behaved pooch.  It also teaches “sit,” “down” and a “release word” so that dogs remain on command until the pet-parent says they can get up.  Parents will also learn the technique of “cradle massage” to help relax their dogs and get them used to being handled so grooming and vet visits are less stressful.

Week #3: All previous information will be reviewed and this week’s lesson will cover learning to walk nicely on a leash so that dogs can be properly and pleasantly exercised.

Week #4: Week four includes the “stay” command, “leave-it” and “give.”  “Stay” helps the dogs learn patience and boosts confidence.  “Leave-it” teaches the dog not to take things without permission and “give” teaches the dog to relinquish anything in his mouth without a tug of war or chase.

Week #5: This class will review all previous material and will introduce the recall in which dogs will learn to come when called.

Week #6: All previous work is reviewed and a fun and informal “final exam” is administered before a graduation ceremony.

This course is designed to take your dog’s obedience to a higher level and teach all elements to prepare to pass the optional Canine Good Citizens test upon graduation. This class will also help prepare dog and handler to register as a Therapy Dog Team in the future. All Basic Obedience commands will be reviewed and mock CGC and Therapy Dog Tests administered. Dog and handler should have a good working relationship prior to taking this class and have completed at least one Basic Obedience class. Commands will include long down stays, group place, formal heel, maximization of recall and much more. Agility equipment will be incorporated to encourage fun and focus for handler and dog.
