Obedience Training Classes
Will your dogs all sit for a picture? Trim Time’s obedience classes can help you teach your dog to sit and stay quietly for certain periods of time.
Does your dog jump on you and your guests, bark at everyone that walks by your house, take off through the door when you open it or grab food off of your plate when you look away? Obedience classes will help break bad habits and create new, positive habits that you and your pet can feel good about.
Do you dream about having a way to manage your dog’s day to day behaviors? Trim Time’s structured lessons will help give pet owners a handle on any tiresome behavior.
There is no time like the present to begin your dog’s education. Trim Time offers classes for dogs at every stage of development, from puppies to mature seniors. Training can help with socialization and provide your dog a new confidence. Any dog can benefit from attending classes that challenge their intellect and enhance their personalities.
Class sizes are kept small to offer a quality learning experience for both you and your dog.
OUR GOAL IS TO HELP THE OWNER PRODUCE A CONFIDENT AND OUT-GOING CANINE COMPANION!
Get started on the right foot. Learn the basics as you socialize your puppy. Begin house-breaking, inhibit jumping, barking and mouthing. We instruct owners on how dogs process information and how to keep your puppy safe while training. Puppy classes provide a basic introduction to control commands like wait, leave it, quiet, sit, down, come, walk nicely on a leash, “leave it” and more.
We train with praise and corrections, but with puppies, it’s mostly teach, teach and teach.
Classes are 4 weeks in length. Each class is 45 minutes long with time afterwards for questions or problem solving. The cost is $85.00.
Beginner Obedience Classes (4 months and up)
This class sets the foundation for a wonderful family companion. We show you how to build a relationship of trust and mutual respect. Control commands like wait, leave it, sit, heel, down, come and stay are emphasized. Young and mature dogs have a capacity to learn quickly and easily. By the end of this 8 weeks, if the trainer has been working with the dog, they will be able to perform all exercises, except when distractions are just to much for their attention span. More distraction training is used in our Advanced class. We do not train with food because it is unreliable. We train with praise and corrections but you must first teach your dog. Any dog will greatly benefit from beginner obedience training. Instructors are available by phone for any questions in between classes.
Classes are 8 weeks in length. Each class is about 50 minutes with time for questions after class. $175
Advanced Obedience Classes
