This 8-week class teaches dogs to respond to basic commands, such as sit, stay, and down, and to perform basic tasks, such as coming when called and walking on a leash.

Each weekly session focuses on one to two commands, and features instruction and practice with an experienced trainer. Participants are invited to ask questions and discuss any problems, such as housebreaking, destructive chewing, and fence jumping. Puppy and adult classes available.

Classes are held on weekday evenings and on Saturdays. New classes begin each month. Cost: $120 (non-refundable).

Basic Obedience Refresher. If your dog is not maintaining its proficiency weeks or months after completing the basic obedience class, take part in a refresher class to brush up on skills such as heeling, coming when called, and the long down stay. You and your dog can take part in classes 4-7 of on-going basic classes for $60.

Openings are available on weeknights and Saturdays.
