I have been teaching obediences classes since 1978. It is one of the most rewarding parts of owning Hair Of the Dog! there is nothing better than seeing a dog with no direction turn into a well-behaved member of the family. Classes are held outdoors by the shop, so that dogs learn to work thru distractions of people passing by, kids & bicycles, sounds of horns, sirens, and even the train whistle.
Classes are taught with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and treats.Classes are 8 weeks, one hour per week, with first and last class being 1+1/2 hour long.

Dogs are taught to Heel on lead, the Leave It! command, Watch (to focus on owner), Automatic sits, Sit, Stand, and Down commands, Greeting a Stranger with a dog, Stand for Examination, One minute Sit-Stay, Three minute Down-Stay, Wait, and Come/Recall & Finish command. We will go over breaking bad habits, learning to speak DOG, and socialization. A graduation occurs on the final night of class.
