Basic Training

Get started with Basic Training, open to dogs older than five months.

For dogs 5 months and older, Basic Training (formerly known as Basic Obedience) builds the foundation for all future training.

Level 1: Begin your training journey in this class. While learning basic skills, you'll also strengthen your relationship with your dog. Through positive reinforcement, teams will learn cues such as sit, down, stay and loose leash walking.

Level 2: This class builds upon skills learned in Level 1. Through positive reinforcement, teams will learn more advanced cues such as heel, come, leave it, and how to practice longer stays.  To participate in Level 2, dogs must be a graduate of Basic 1 or another comparable basic training/manners course.

Unless otherwise noted, both Level 1 and Level 2 classes are forty-five minutes long and last for four weeks.

* In-person Basic Training Level 1 and 2 classes are not for dogs that exhibit aggressive or reactive behaviors or have extreme shyness. If your dog exhibits this type of behavior, visit our specialty class listings, enroll in one of our online classes or consider a private consultation. You may email or call us at (207) 985-3244 ext 111 for more information on the training services and programs we may be able to offer you and your dog.
