Basic Obedience Class/AKC S.T.A.R. Pup (6mth +)

Posted in Classes

Basic Class Level I

This class has a well-rounded beginner curriculum designed to introduce obedience as well as good manners and social behavior.  Basic Level I is appropriate for pups of all ages with little to no previous obedience training, including:

  • Young pups (typically in the 6-12 month range) AKC STAR Puppy
  • Rescue/adopted dogs
  • Adult dogs that have not previously attended a formal obedience class
  • Pups that have recently completed our New Puppy Socialization Class

We cover basic obedience commands such as sit, down, stay, leave it, etc. We also introduce leash walking, feeding rituals, tricks, and strategies for impolite behaviors such as jumping.  This is an on-leash class.

Pups under 1 year of age will have the opportunity to earn their AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy title on graduation night.

2SpeakDog encourages attendance by the whole family. If you have young children, we ask that two adults attend class when possible.

If your dog is reactive on leash around other dogs, reach out to us ahead of time to ensure we have the right resources available for you and your pup!

Basic I and II SPECIAL DISCOUNT! 2SD is now offering a "package deal" for Basic Obedience Levels I and II. Students who pre-pay for both classes together receive a $30 discount! Instead of $290 for both classes, you pay only $260! Please let us know if you would like to take advantage of this special! This offer is only good through the first night of your class.

Please Note: If you are interested in training two or more dogs, whether they are litter mates or just house mates, please sign them up for classes or workshops individually. We do not recommend having both dogs in the same class, as they will be more successful building confidence on their own, learning to rely on you, instead of their pack mates.
