Obedience Training

Overview:

To help you and your new puppy off to a good start, our hospital offers both puppy and adult obedience classes. Have fun learning about health, obedience and behavioral topics while socializing with other dogs! At its core, obedience training is about one key concept in particular: leadership. It's about more than just getting your dog to pay attention to you - a dog will do that already anytime they want a little affection. It's about getting your dog to see you as the true leader of the pack that you really are. It's about getting them to pay attention to you and not the world around them. Once that simple goal is achieved, everything else has a habit of falling into place.
