Brody's Boot Camp

Why Take Obedience Classes?

Because, a dog’s ability to understand and respond to commands can save his life!

Obedience classes are a great way to socialize with other “dog people,” but more importantly, a way to socialize your dog. It's lots of fun for both of you. Your dog gets to be in the company of other dogs, see new sites, smell new smells, hear new sounds, and be the center of your world for a full hour and a half.

Training is also a tremendous bonding experience between you and your dog, which is so important for a successful relationship.

Lack of education is the worst excuse for giving up a dog, but one of the most common. Dogs are NOT dumb. They just need to be taught the rules and what’s expected of them. And, with so many trainers and methods available, there is no excuse not to train your dog. Obedience training builds your dogs’ self confidence. It also relieves boredom and provides exercise, both of which help to eliminate unwanted behavioral issues and maintain proper mental and physical health.

Again, socialization is so IMPORTANT and should start as early as possible in order to have a well-behaved and well balanced dog. Even if you don’t take formal obedience classes, just get your dog out there around as many different animals, people, and stimuli as possible. And don’t forget to include plenty of daily exercise, exercise, exercise.

Training your dog is a win-win for both of you, and dogs love to learn!

In My Class

You will receive plenty of individual attention, which is the reason for keeping class size small.
We will discuss and demonstrate how to properly use training equipment.
We will use praise and positive reinforcement (and maybe a few treats!) to reinforce proper behavior.
You will learn the basic obedience commands: Sit, Stay, Heel, Come, Lie Down, and Attention.
We will practice using these basic commands in day-to-day situations.
We will prepare for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test by incorporating the 10 test items into our weekly class format.
And, we will keep it fun by spending a little time for "doggie socialization".
Our Advanced/Fun Class will reinforce basic commands, off leash work, introductions to Rally and Agility, and some competitive, fun and games.

The only guarantee is that in my class, you and your dog will learn something, and will have fun doing it! If you follow through and practice with the tools you are given, you should have a happy and obedient dog in no time. Remember, you will not achieve success without CONSISTENCY. Your dog needs you to be the leader 24/7, which is your job and part of your commitment as a dog guardian.
