Classes Offered by Master's Kennels

Six Week Indoor/Outdoor Training Courses

        
     No choke chains or pinch collars are allowed in any of our classes.
The dog learns to obey you to make you happy, not because it has been forced to do something to make you happy. 
"Gregg's Way" teaches you to become a pack leader in a very fun, exciting and communicative way. 
Training becomes a game and all dogs love games.
 

These courses are designed to help you and your dog build a relationship while teaching basic obedience skills. 
Each class increases in difficulty as new cues are introduced and mastered.  Classes teach you to become the "pack leader".
Minimum class size is 3 dogs.

 

  • Puppy Class (12 wks. to 5 mos.) - Teaches puppies to start learning with an easy, fun approach while socializing with other dogs and humans.  The course teaches cues such as heel, sit, sit/stay, down, down/stay, come and more.  Potty training help offered.  $120

 

  • Basic Classes - Basic classes are for dogs 5 mos. and older.  Your dog will learn such commands as heel, sit, sit/stay, down, down/stay, leave it, weaving and come when you are called the first time.  Your dog, using "Gregg's Way", will learn to focus on you and what you desire.  While similar to our puppy class, a variety of distractions are used to solidify the dog's working knowledge.  Your dog will be tested so that you will feel confident in your ability along with your dog's ability to perform each command.  $140


  • Intermediate Classes - Dogs must have successfully passed Basic.  Dogs and handlers will build upon the skills learned in the previous class.  New skills will be added, some of which include Sit and Greet, Weaving with Sit/stay and Down/stay, Recalls to Front with finishes to Heel.  $150


  • Advanced Classes - Dogs must be invited to this class from the intermediate level.  Your dog's focus will be increased while learning additional commands, expanding your dog's vocabulary and ability to better interact with their owners.  Additional commands such as left hand turns, right hand turns, reverses, four-post hub and sit to heel will be added.  Your dog should be ready for its CGC testing and border lining it on its Companion Dog title.  Many of these commands will be either with a dropped leash or off leash.  Your dog will be able to perform all these commands both indoors and outdoors.  $160

 

  • Excellent Class - Dogs must have successfully passed our intermediate class.  In excellent class, your dog will be performing all the above commands off leash and will be ready to enter the ring for its Companion Dog title through AKC.  After successfully completing excellent, the direction that you can take your dog is endless.  Other avenues you and your dog can then pursue include agility, rally, tricks, therapy dog, utility dog, tracking dog, hunting, dog, etc.  This will open up new experiences for both you and your best friend.  $170

 

  • Rally - Fundamentals of a sport where dog and handler complete a course of designated stations.  Each station provides instructions of the next skill that is to be performed.  Rally provides a link from obedience classes to other competitive activities and sports while promoting fun and enjoyment for both handler and dog working as a team.  $140
