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.

Few people enter obedience training with any concept of how much fun they’re about to have, or how deeply they’re about to bond with their dog. These two incredibly powerful side effects of

Beginner Obedience compel many students to take training one step further.

Intermediate Obedience bridges the gap between just getting started and getting serious about obedience training. This class helps you polish the skills you learned in Beginner class, introduces you to off-leash training, using hand signals, and prepares you for more advanced training. Intermediate class is where the serious fun begins!

The six-week course meets once a week for one hour and fifteen minutes.

Training FAQ

My dog already knows how to sit, lie down, and all that. Can I just go straight into the intermediate class?

We use the clicker training method in our classes, and all classes are taught on that foundation. For that reason, in our experience, dogs who have been home-trained or attended classes elsewhere have a very difficult time "catching up" in our intermediate class. We believe you, your dog, and your training goals will be best served by attending our beginner class first. Feel free to call us at 479.444.0300 for further discussion on this issue.

Because we want to protect you as well as our trainers and staff from the Coronovirus, we have decided it is in the best interests of all to postpone classes until further notice. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page or feel free to call us on our hotline, 479.935.0811 for updates.

Any credits you have toward future classes will remain active. Beginner and Intermediate Obedience students, we will pick up right where we left off. Be sure to continue working on the skills you’ve learned thus far so you’re ready to jump back in when classes resume.

Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe!
