Canine Influenza Virus has just recently 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 by the time the puppy is 12 weeks old, and the booster 3-4 weeks later.

Whether you’re interested in competing in obedience, rally, earning a trick dog title, or just love training your dog, you and your dog will have a ball in The Canine Connection’s Advanced Obedience class. Our experienced instructors “mix it up” every few weeks to keep training fun and interesting for both you and your dog.

Our training philosophy at The Canine Connection encompasses two principles: 1) Training should be fun for both you and the dog. 2) Training means teamwork.

By the time you reach the Advanced Obedience level, you will have experienced both of these principles, and thus this training philosophy, yourself.

Advanced Obedience meets on Mondays at 7:45 p.m. for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Upcoming group class starting dates and topics, along with enrollment instructions, will be announced on this page.

Call us at 479.444.0300 to register for Advanced Obedience classes.

Training FAQ

I want my dog to be a therapy dog. Do you have classes for that?

A very wise therapy dog evaluator once told us, "If someone ever tries to charge you for ‘therapy dog classes', run! Because the training for a therapy dog is obedience training!" And, yes, we do obedience training…LOTS of obedience training. Assuming your dog has the right temperament to become a therapy dog, we can absolutely help you achieve that goal.

I wanted to get my dog certified as a Canine Good Citizen (CGC). Can you help me with that?
