Group Training Classes
Unfortunately group classes are not available at this time due to covid 19 restrictions, but we are currently offering private lessons in 6 weeks sessions and a greatly reduced rate until group classes are able to start again! Classes are held in Lethbridge, AB. Any of our existing group programs are available for this limited time private training offer! These private classes are very reasonably priced at $300 per 6 week session.
Foundation Obedience Level 1&2:
In level 1 dogs learn the foundation skills that will help them to become well mannered dogs that enjoy working the field while under control and are easy to live with for many years to come. This class is open to all dogs over 6 months of age and covers foundation behaviours such as here, sit and/or whoa (depending on your dogs hunting style), stay, heel, lay down, go to bed, as well as introducing some off leash work in a controlled environment. In Level 2 we improve the behaviours learned in level 1 by adding distance, distractions, duration and increasing the difficulty of the behaviours learned in level one. If you think you are ready for level 2 but have not taken our level 1 course, please contact us for an assessment
This class is for dogs up to 6 months old and covers how develop your puppy into a great gun dog! We cover a variety of topics including socialization, including how and when to start teaching your pup formal obedience behaviours, preventing problem behaviours, field introduction, bird introduction and how to build good habits that will help you with later training!
Training the Retrieve Level1&2
This class is great for people who are looking to train their dog to retrieve reliably without the dog destroying retrieve items or playing "keep away". In level 1 we teach both the "take it" command where the dog learns to put an item in its mouth on command, and the "hold" command where the dog needs to hold the item quietly without chewing on it, and in level 2 we merge those two commands together to create a finished retrieve. This class is open to dogs that have passed foundation obedience level 1 & 2 or have passed an assesment.
