Level Up


Now that you have completed Great Beginnings, your dog is ready to handle the challenges of an obedience class. This class was previously known as Family Dog. We have changed the name to reflect the significant changes that we've made to this program. It truly is a level up in their ability to learn and perform specific commands.

Obedience training requires your dog to be able to listen and respond to your instructions in a very distracting environment. If your goal is for your dog to achieve their Canine Good Neighbour or Dog Therapy Certificate, or to participate in Rally Obedience, Level Up is your next step.

This course covers basic obedience skills, including stays from various positions, heelwork, recall, working around distractions, not jumping up, leave it and more. It will prepare both you and your dog for the more vigorous exercises and challenges covered in our Life Skills program.

After Level Up you can move into Life Skills, Off Leash Freedom, Stress Free Walks, or Canine Freestyle.

PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT THE CORRECT LOCATION. Click on the column titled LOCATION to sort the classes by location.

If you Select a class that is marked CLASS FULL, you will be put on a wait list.
