NYOC’s next training session will start in January on:
Tuesdays, January 10 – February 28 (8 weeks)
Thursdays, January 12 – March 2 (8 weeks)
Cost is $240 for each eight week session.
Registration opens for NYOC members on Wednesday, Dec. 7 and for non-members on Thursday, Dec. 15.
Sorry, but we do not accept registrations before the opening dates.
For experienced NYOC members only, we are offering the opportunity to INDEPENDENTLY use our facility and equipment to train your dog.
There will be two thirty minute time slots (Mat Time A 8:15 – 8:45 and Mat Time B 8:45-9:15). Please indicate which you prefer when registering.
Each time slot is limited to 3 dogs.
Class fees are the same as for regular classes.
Building on skills taught in our Obedience 101 class, this class is designed for those who want to continue bonding with their dog through training, as well as handlers who are interested in building a solid foundation for competition obedience and/or other dog sports.
The course is structured around the needs of those in the class. Fun, motivational exercises are used throughout. Specific skills include:
- a continued emphasis on teaching dogs to focus on their handlers, even with distractions
- solid loose-leash walking and an introduction to precision heeling
- teaching dogs to continue to work well in the absence of obvious food lures and constant treats
In addition to the above, the Spring session of this class also includes the exercises required for the Canine Good Neighbour (CGN) test, as offered by the Canadian Kennel Club.
This is one of two Basic Obedience classes offered this session. They are suitable for dogs over the age of 5 months and are essentially the same.
Both classes involves teaching you to train your dog in basic obedience and good manners. The classes are designed for both family pets and dogs who will eventually be competing in formal obedience trials.
