During this six week course, we will practice and perfect all test items in the Canine Good Citizen test, and introduce and practice all test items in the Community Canine test (next level of CGC). The class is designed to use the basic obedience established in 100 level training to master manners, like sitting politely for petting, walking on a loose leash through a crowd, etc. This is great class for any dog looking to improve their social skills and obedience in public places.
During this six week course, we will use the obedience skills established in the 100 and 200 level training to turn your dog into the ultimate companion. Dogs will learn off-leash obedience, long distance obedience, new ways to move smoothly through crowded environments and refine impulse control.
These elective classes cover various topics, with behaviors from Agility, Nosework, Rally, Trick Dog, etc. These classes and workshops are for owners who are looking for more than basic obedience and want some mental stimulation, confidence building and bonding opportunities with their dog. Topics rotate, so keep checking the schedule for new training opportunities!

Introduce your dog to the electronic collar. Teach them to come when called, go to place, heel and stop unnecessary behaviors.

E-mail us for brand recommendations prior to the start of class. This class will meet every Wednesday for 4 weeks.
One-hour, one-time training classes so you can reap the benefits of group work without committing to 4-6 weeks of training.

Monday, September 20th from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Saturday, October 23rd from 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Join us at LFL to practice polite greeting with some of your peers. If your dog is too excited when meeting new dogs or people, nervous around new people or dogs? This workshop is for you! We will go through exercise meant to teach emotional self control, so you can feel confident when you approach distractions our in public, or even at your front door.
Get comfortable trimming and grinding your dog’s nails. Nails should be trimmed at minimum once a week, and there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to do them right at home. Short nails can improve your dog’s traction, posture and proprioception. We will have equipment available, but feel free to ask for recommendations as well.
See if your dog has what it takes to earn their Trick Dog Titles! We will be testing dog and handler teams for the AKC Trick Dog Titles. We can evaluate dogs at any and all levels, so if you know more than the minimum required tricks, you could earn multiple titles at one shot! We will also be evaluating dogs for the CGC at that time, by request.
ANY dog can participate and earn titles, as long as they have an AKC number (and ANY dog can apply for a number). If you need help figuring out if your dog has a number or not, let us know and we can help sort it out. We will be testing Leash Free Living dogs for free at this event, but there is an application fee that has to be mailed in to earn the certificate.
