The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire offers obedience classes both to its alumni and members of the general public.
These classes will help you train your dog to sit, stand, lie down, stay where left, come when called, how to walk (nicely) on a leash, and so much more. Other subjects like nipping and biting, jumping on people, problem barking, digging, chewing, general grooming tips and how to safely behave in public will also be discussed.
| Classes that are offered:
The Puppy Course: Open to puppies 4 months of age and younger at the start of class. Puppy class covers all the answers to many of the challenges associated with having a puppy in your home. This type of socialization is critical at this young age. Proper socialization and play will assist you in raising a happy, well adjusted puppy.
The Basic Course: Always the most popular, this course is designed to teach humans and canines all the basic commands, and how to raise a well-mannered dog.
The Advanced Course: Open to those who have completed the Basic course, this class not only works as a review of the lessons learned in the Basic course, but it will helps maintain them through 'real life' situations and play training.
Advanced Obedience Graduation
Classes open to dogs (and humans) of all abilities!
Classes run 1 hour long and last for 5 weeks (puppy) or 6 weeks (basic & advanced). Classes are held Tuesday & Wednesday nights at the shelter. Once a class fills, it will start on whichever day and time happens to be available at that point. Class size is determined by the individual dogs and their specific needs (usually 5-7 dogs per class). Taking an obedience course with your dog is a highly effective means of establishing a productive, pleasant, mutual understanding between you and your dog. It provides a framework for your life together that allows both of you to derive maximum enjoyment from the human/canine bond. This basic education is truly so much more than just a method of handling your dog. It's integral to the establishment of a solid team relationship that will benefit you, your dog, and every person your dog comes in contact with, long after the class ends.
Your investment in training your dog will result in a dog that is easier to live with, more pleasant for others to be around, safer from harm, happier and more confident. But most of all, you and your dog will have fun, and people will be impressed by your well-behaved companion!
Classes are always ongoing. To sign up or for more information please contact Instructor Maureen Prendergast at firstname.lastname@example.org. A portion of the proceeds go directly to the ARL-NH.
