Dog Training

Obedience Training
At The Feed Bag Training facility, we currently offer two levels of foundational obedience classes; General Manners Basic and General Manners Advanced.

General Manners

General Manners utilizes the Third Way of Dog Training, which helps dogs develop a relationship of trust and safety with their owner versus fear of punishment. The Third Way helps you and your dog learn about reinforcing desirable behaviors and managing the environment to prevent undesirable behaviors.

In the Basic Puppy (beginner) Class you will learn the basics of the Eye Contact Game; teaching the dog to focus on you, along with Sit/Maintain, Down/Maintain, Come When Called, Loose Leash Walking and Socialization, along with other behavioral skills. The Basic Puppy Class is ideal for puppies 8-15 weeks old. The Basic Adult Class offers the same techniques as Basic Puppy and is for dogs aged 16 weeks to Senior. The Basic Adult Class is for any dog of any age, but is especially ideal for the newly adopted dog.

In the Advanced Class, all of the above skills are ‘Proofed’ (perfected) plus additional skills and problem solving techniques are taught to help you with your ever-changing furry friend as he/she grows and matures.

In order for your dog to receive the greatest benefit from class, it is vitally important that YOU make a commitment to your dog’s training outside of class. 15 minutes twice a day, every day is ideal.
