Basic training

General information

Beneficial for dogs who are fully vaccinated and are 4 months and older. You’ll learn effective ways to get your dog to do what you ask while building a trusting and respectful relationship.

You’ll also learn how to give your dog the mental and physical exercise he needs, teach your dog not to jump on you, pay attention when asked, teach him how to sit, lay down, stay, come, walk on leash politely, wait at doors, and shake.

You will receive a packet containing step-by-step instructions on how to teach your dog these behaviors, plus additional information on how to resolve problem behaviors that aren’t addressed in the class.

Participation in the class REQUIRES that you attend the first session without your dog. Please know this mandatory session may differ from normal class hours.

FEE:

  • $109 for the entire six-week session;
  • $95 for dogs adopted from the Sacramento SPCA or the city or county shelters;
  • $75 for seniors age 65 and older.
