The main reasons dogs are surrendered and then euthanized at animal shelters are behavior related. However, this is not the dog’s fault. Doing nothing about bad behavior only encourages the bad behavior. Dogs are constantly learning and as pet owners. it is our responsibility to teach our dogs what is expected of them. We believe the key to a well trained dog is to enroll them in a basic obedience program. At First Class Canine Training, we emphasize teaching you how to communicate with your dog in an encouraging manner. We work in one-on-one sessions with you or with your entire family. We explain every lesson and provide written materials for you so that you can continue working on building a happy, healthy, relationship with your dog. Basic obedience is the foundation to having a clear communication with your dog. We teach your dog the behavior and give you the tools to reinforce and build on the new behaviors your dog will learn.

Providing your dog with basic obedience training is the best gift you can give yourself and your dog. It is the cornerstone to advanced training and ultimately, builds a better bond between you and your best friend.
