Do you want to have a well-mannered and obedient dog that will be welcome in most situations? In the Beginner 1 class, basic obedience exercises are taught including sit, down, stay, heeling on leash, and coming when called.
Minor distractions are used to ensure success. Class discussions include how to use praise effectively, choice of collars, and information on how to practise outside of class.
In class, we will work on teaching your dog to:
- Pay attention to you
- Walk on a loose leash
- Do a basic recall
- Sit when asked
- Down when asked
- Gently accept praise, rewards, and treats from you and from other people.
This class is a prerequisite for Beginner 2.
