Here’s a little update on our classes for this session as well as what you can look forward to in the months that are coming. All regular classes are 6 weeks in length and cost $250.
We currently have openings in our Puppy Play and Train class on Thursday mornings for early socialization, this is ONLY for puppies between 8-16 weeks so if you have any friends who just got a puppy this is THE class for them! Feel free to forward this email to them!
Our Level 1 - Puppy Kindergarten classes currently have availability on Tuesday at 9:30am starting on 1/9, Tuesday at 11am starting on 2/27 and Wednesday’s at 9:30am starting on 1/31. This class is for puppies 6 months and younger. For those with older puppies and dogs we have a Level 1 - Beginner Obedience on Monday’s at 11am starting on 1/8 with only 3 spaces left!
If you’ve completed Level 1 January may be the right time to start our Level 2 class. We are offering Level 2 on Tuesday’s at 12:30pm and Wednesday’s at 11am. These classes are rolling admission class (no start and end date), so you can start anytime, as long as there is room in the class. We work on leash walking, go to mat and recalls we learned in Level 1 and add skills like Leave it, Long Distance Downs, Stay and more. Right now our Tuesday class has openings in mid-late January and the Wed class has openings starting on 1/10 or later.
Once you finish Level 2 you are eligible to take most of the following classes in any order*!
Level 3 - Our practice class where we work on ALL the skills your dog knows in more challenging environments. During the winter that means lots of fun but challenging games where we improve your dog’s leash skills, recalls, leave it’s and more all while being around lots of distractions, especially other dogs! In milder weather, we take this class outside and practice in and around West Concord! This class is on Monday’s at 12:30pm and has a rolling & flexible admission (see the web site for details).
Level 4 - Canine Good Citizen class. We are offering this class on Wednesday’s at 12:30pm starting on 1/17. This 6 week class will work on all aspects of the CGC test and culminate in the administration of the AKC CGC test! Here’s a link that explains the AKC CGC program.
Tricks - Our current Tricks class (Tuesday’s at 3:30pm starting on 1/9) is full, but we run this class every session, so look for the next class to start around mid-late February! You can let me know if you want to be on the wait list for that class too! Here’s a link that describes the AKC Tricks Title Program.
Rally - We currently are running two different Rally classes in January, both are full, and depending on demand we may run this class again in February - lmk if you want to be on the wait list! Here’s a link that describes the AKC Rally Program
Our Adventure Class will begin again in the spring, when the ice melts off the trails. *This class is for dogs that have completed Level 3, and involves off leash hikes in local recreations areas. If you are interested in doing our Adventure class, now is the time to do Level 2 and/or Level 3 to qualify!
Remember the time you invest in training your puppy now will pay huge dividends in the years to come!
