This program is our basic group obedience class for dogs 16 weeks and older. If your dog is experiencing severe behavioral issues, please consider working one on one with us before enrolling in this class.  This class is not appropriate for dogs who have demonstrated any form of aggression or leash reactivity towards other dogs or humans, please check out our reactive rovers class if that sounds like your pup!

Classes will cover the basics of positive relationship based training while teaching your dog sit, down, stay, place, and the fundamentals of loose leash walking.As these are positive reinforcement based classes only, we will not be using any type of pinch, prong, or slip collar. Each dog is expected to attend class on either a flat collar, a head halter, or a front clip harness depending on need. Please keep in mind that for MOST dogs harnesses that are leashed from behind will make pulling worse and are thus not suited for our purposes.

A 4 or 6 foot leash will work best for class. Please do NOT bring your dog on a retractable leash. They are unsafe under the best of circumstances, and with untrained dogs they can be life threatening.

Each student will receive a clicker on the first day of class, please bring it back to class with you each week.  Please come to each class with approximately 200 bite size training treats.

These classes do require preregistration please email 2ndchancecanines@gmail.com or give us a call to register. Prepayment is required to hold your place in class and may be paid via paypal or check.
