  • “I had a wonderful experience at your Canton store today. This was my first visit but will not be my last. The salesperson was very helpful and extremely nice and was able to answer all my questions. If you have some kind of employee recognition program, she should definitely be recognized as an asset to your company. Again, great experience.” - Cindi M.

Beginner
This course is designed to help create a positive relationship between dogs and their families. Techniques will be used that compliment canine language and nature. This makes it easier for your dog to understand what you are trying to convey. We will address the most common behavioral issues as we establish a common language for training and control. You will learn how to effectively communicate with your dog and gain a better understanding of canine behavior. In Beginner Obedience, we provide the necessary tools to establish a secure and successful relationship. This is the first level class for dogs five months and over.
