We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, February 26, 2022.
Karen Clanin has been instructing classes at all levels since 1969 and started instructing for the City of Atascadero in 1979. The Beginning Dog Obedience class will cover sit-stand-down, walking on a leash with out pulling, come when called, sit & down stay. Karen's methods are mostly positive reinforcement, making the learning fun for the owner as well as the dog.
For the 1st class, bring your dog on the collar you have and the leash you have (no harnesses please). Proper equipment will be discussed the first class. Also, bring a smelly, tasty, easy to swallow training treat. Karen suggests keeping the treats in a fanny pack so they are easy to get to.
A copy of your dog's immunization record, available from your vet, must be brought to the first class for Karen to keep. Class is scheduled for 1 hour, but may run over slightly so please allow the time. This class is not for aggressive dogs, if you have a questions about this contact Karen and she may meet you privately for evaluation. Please no wolf or wolf-hybrids in class.
NOTE: Class will be held at Karen's facility. You must contact Karen prior to the 1st class for directions at email@example.com
