Beginner Obedience

Your dog’s first step in their training journey!

Whether you’re interested in therapy dog work, dog sports or just want a well-behaved family companion, the All Dawgs Beginner Obedience class is your first step. In this foundational class, we use a building-block approach to help prepare your dog for future training. Following Beginner Obedience class, we recommend Dawg Manners, Who’s Walking Who and Intermediate Obedience to continue your dog’s journey towards your training goals.

Your dog is depending on you to lead them to learn how to behave properly. You know what you want your dog to do, but do you know how to clearly and consistently communicate this to achieve the results you want? With trainer-lead demonstrations, including beginning to work through distractions, interactive hands-on exercises and written homework, we’ll give you the tools you need to train your dog in a group class.

Taking our Beginner Obedience class is the first step in improving your quality of life. If you change how you behave with your dog, your dog’s behavior will change — for the better!
