Basic Dog Obedience
with John Palange
Do you sometimes feel like your dog is the master? A well-trained pet will make life easier and more enjoyable for everyone. In this six-week basic obedience class we will work on teaching your dog to walk without pulling on a leash, heel, sit, down, stay, and come, in a friendly and relaxed way. Dogs should be six months old or older. Proof of rabies vaccination must be submitted to Adult Ed office prior to first class. You will need a six-foot leash and an appropriate training collar. John Palange has trained dogs professionally at K-9 Training Center for over 42 years, with other trainers often referring their most “challenging” dogs to him.

Refining of previously learned commands, such as increasing the duration of the“stay” or moving out of sight during a “down” exercise are also included. Trick training is another facet of intermediate obedience, and tricks, such as rolling over or choosing the right toy from a pile, are easier to teach once your dog has a handle on basic obedience skills.
