Up Front Dog Center offers programs for Pet Obedience, Competition Obedience, Rally, Agility, K9 Nose Work, and Tracking. Which one you follow is based on your interests.
The Pet Obedience program teaches you and your dog basic skills needed for a well-mannered dog at home and in public places. This program offers a series of classes including: Puppy Kindergarten, Beginner 1, Beginner 2/CGC and Therapy. Additionally, we offer a Tricks class for dogs at any training level.
We recommend all puppies start with the Pet Obedience program and take the Puppy Kindergarten class.
If you have no prior experience with dog training, you should continue in the pet obedience program taking the Beginner 1 and the Beginner 2/CGC class. After graduating from Beginner 2/CGC you are eligible to take the Therapy class.
If you have prior experience with dog training and dog sports, you can jump into one of the other programs at any point.
All classes at Up Front Dog Center are taught with positive, motivational methods. They are intended to be fun for both the dog owner and the dog, while providing the desired results, (e.g., creating the dog that is a pleasure to live with).
