The Family Companion Introductory Obedience Program will quickly provide you with the knowledge to teach your dog to SIT, DOWN, STAY, COME, HEEL, WALK WITH A LOOSE LEASH, NOT JUMP UP ON PEOPLE and more. We use modern, gentle, effective methods. We have recently restructured our program to enable the dogs to learn at an accelerated rate for very quick results. During the classes, you will acquire a thorough knowledge about how dogs learn and a variety of training techniques to suit your individual dog.
We strive to develop a solid relationship between you and your dog by placing emphasis on petting, praise and play as rewards. Food treats are used sparingly to prevent your dog from only listening when treats are present.
You will be taught to apply what you learn in class for use in everyday life.
A fun class where you and your dog learn to enjoy, understand and respect each other. Your dog will develop emotional control and self discipline to provide reliability when encountering distractions.
The classes are held in three different locations.
- On Saturday afternoons in South Rawdon at the Lietash Dog Sport Facility and Grounds (View Map)
- On Sunday afternoons in Lower Sackville at Hiltz Tae Kwon Do (View Map)
- On Tuesday evenings in Dartmouth at Cole Harbour Place (View Map)
The Family Companion program consists of six, one hour, classes for a fee of $195 which includes the tax.
