Canine Influenza Virus has been verified in Fayetteville, AR. Dogs who are exposed to it are 80-100% likely to become infected. With that in mind we are now requiring that all dogs be vaccinated. There are two vaccinations required, the first when the puppy is 12 weeks old, and the booster 3-4 weeks later.

Whether you simply want a well-behaved dog, or you aspire toward competition-level obedience, The Canine Connection’s Beginner Obedience class is the place to start.

In this class, our experienced professionals will introduce you and your dog to clicker training and then teach you to train your dog to:

  • Pay attention to you.
  • Walk nicely on a leash.
  • Sit
  • Lie down
  • Stay
  • Come when called
