Dogs enrolling in our Basic Beginner’s class learn how to walk on a loose lead, stay, come when called and many other skills that will make them better pets both at home and out in public. The owners are taught how to handle the dog in a group setting with 2 instructors overseeing a class of 10-12 students. Our Advanced and Competition classes teach you all the exercises needed to compete in obedience or rally at any level. They also give you the control you need to participate in the agility classes. We use positive motivational methods in a small class setting stressing the importance of “having fun” in learning to work with our dogs. Linda has 30 years experience teaching obedience classes in the Louisville area. She competes actively with her dogs in AKC and UKC Obedience Rally, Tracking and Agility trials.
Dogs enrolling in agility should have basic obedience training. Confidence, safety, obstacle control, and handling are taught in these classes. The Handling Classes are designed for those students interested in competing with their dogs in Agility Trials. All of our agility instructors are highly qualified and compete not only in agility but also in obedience with their dogs.
