Canine University offers classes for all levels, abilities and
interests. All courses are taught using operant conditioning
through the use of a clicker and treats.
Beginners Classes are Open Enrollment, this means there is no need to wait, you can start this week!!
Puppy Kindergarten- just for pups 8-18 weeks at the
start of class- is held Tuesdays from 7:30-8:30 pm.
Beginners Obedience, appropriate for all ages, perfect
for dogs who have had no formal training and also a good starting
point for those who have taken a class at their local pet
shop or shelter. Open Enrollment Obedience is offered Wednesday
evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm. Orientation- attended without
your dog- is every Wednesday at 7:00 pm.
Each of Canine University's beginner classes offers solid,
foundational training to get you started on realizing the
companion of your dreams (or at least a dog you like to live
with!). We'll gladly help you set and reach your goals, and
provide lots of coaching and attention to those special areas
As your dog's abilities increase, this class format allows
students to successfully transition into Intermediate coursework.
Good Manners Everywhere builds upon concepts learned in
our beginners classes. It's the appropriate Next Step from
puppy or adult dog beginner obedience. As this course is open enrollment, graduates of our beginner classes can start any Wednesday at 7:30.
Specialty Courses have a specific agenda- whether
it be working with a reactive dog, teaching tricks or good
behavior in different settings.
Workshops and Seminars We occasionally offer single-date lectures as
well as hands-on workshops in our class schedule. These may
target nuisance behavior, prepare you for the AKC Canine God
Citizens test, or cover topics on canine social behavior.
