Happy Dog Days of August to all you Dog Lovers,
I'm thrilled to have Erica Marshall coming back to Breeze Thru to teach sessions of Basic Obedience and Rally Obedience classes this fall!!!
BASIC OBEDIENCE and
RALLY OBEDIENCE CLASSES
Friday nights at Breeze Thru Agility
in Brattleboro, Vermont
Starting Friday, September 16, 2016
with trainer Erica Marshall
Five week session, $115
See class descriptions, times and pre-requisites below
Basic Manners 101 - 6:00pm
This 5 week entry level class will help you learn to train your young dog in the basics of attention, sit and down, leash skills, coming when called and self control behaviors. This class is appropriate for puppies and dogs 8 weeks and up that have had no previous training.
Beginner Rally Obedience - 7:15pm
This 5 week class is appropriate for those dogs that have completed Basic Manners 101 or equivalent. Dog and handler will learn and practice Rally Obedience moves to include heeling, turns, finishes, recalls and other behaviors that are required at Level 1 World Cynosport Rally.
What is Rally?
In Rally Obedience you and your dog learn to work as a team to execute various behaviors and patterns that are eventually performed in a longer course (which is always different) as directed by signs for each move. At each sign you perform the exercise described and then move along to the next sign on the course. The handler is allowed to walk and learn a course without the dog prior to performing it. Adding to the upbeat atmosphere of Rally is that the handler can reward, praise and encourage their dog as they make their way around the course (unlike formal competition obedience).
Level 1 Prerequisites: Your dog should be able to perform basic behaviors on cue, such as sit, heel and down, though these behaviors do not have to be perfect.
