Dog Obedience Level 1: Basic Life Skills

Adult Enrichment / Pet Care -
Summer 2024

Discover how to teach your dog a sense of self-calming and desirable house and social manners. Use basic cues such as sit, down, stay and come with both hand and voice signals.

We will also talk about tips for loose leash walking, jumping on guests, and ways to keep our pups mentally stimulated. Our goal is to help you gain or build a trusting relationship with your dog and learn when to meet them in the middle. Behavior modification is a science and applies to all animals, regardless of age.

No dogs on the first night of class. The first class is for the human end of the leash only. Please email proof of your dog's updated vaccine information to your instructor Holly at before the 1st day of class. (Your dog must be up-to-date on both Rabies and Distemper Combo (if under 6 months, bring in updates as they are obtained). Bordetella is not required, though strongly recommended.

Please wear comfortable shoes, as we will be doing some moving around. Other supplies such as treats and leashes will be discussed during the first week of orientation. No dogs the first week.

***If you believe your dog is aggressive or fearful, one-on-one sessions will be more appropriate for you. If you have any questions, you can find info on Unleashed Trainers website at or you can register under the Privates Lessons tab.***
