DOG TRAINING OBEDIENCE CLASSES
Train your dog or puppy with one of Canada’s best dog obedience trainers. As a top national obedience competitor, Keltie R. Lang has the knowledge and experience to balance your dog’s attitude and drive with disciplined work ethic and handler respect. Happy dog, happy home!
Obedience classes classes with Keltie R. Lang will teach your puppy or dog how to be a calm, respectful, and happy member of your household. Through the 6 week program, you will learn the skills to read and handle your dog in distracting environments, both on and off leash. Walking nicely on leash, coming when called, maintaining sit, down, and stand positions, and acting responsibly around other dogs and people are just a few of the obedience skills your dog or puppy will learn.
In Puppy Kindergarten (puppies from 8 weeks to 4 months of age), we cover puppy obedience & manners, life with a new puppy, socialization exercises, and introduction to adult dog obedience. The focus of Beginner Obedience (dogs 5 months of age and older) is on walking nicely on leash, holding placement positions around distractions, and being respectful around other dogs and people. Dogs graduating from Beginner Obedience will have the skills required to pass the Canine Good Neighbour exam.
Training is done from a balanced perspective where the goal is to engage the dog’s mind. By engaging the dog's mind, they learn to listen and concentrate on their handler by making correct choices. This is done rewarding good behaviour and clearly communicating to the dog what behaviours we want and do not want. Dogs learn good behaviour brings rewards and that there are consequences for bad behaviour.
