Ledgewood - Basic & Advanced Training Classes
We will be holding classes at The Animal Hospital of Roxbury | 1901 US HWY 46, Ledgewood, NJ 07851.
This is an 8-week basic training course where you and your dog will build a solid foundation of behavioral skills. Because this is a group class, your dog will become better able to work around distractions. With our coaching, you will become better at communicating with your dog effectively. The skills taught are: sit, down, stay, here, wait, leave-it, and release. Basic training is for all dogs; it’s for the total beginner or for dogs who have already had some training. Classes will meet for 1 hour each week for 8 weeks. Cost $199.
This 8-week course is limited to 5-dogs that are 5 months or older when the course begins
The first week of class is an orientation. We ask that you not bring your dog to the orientation so the instructor can have your undivided attention as they go over what you can expect from the class. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG TO THE FIRST CLASS.

NOTE: Handlers must be at least 14 years of age or older. Anyone under 18 must have an adult present during all classes. All family members are welcome to attend and observe the class.
This class expands upon basic cues such as coming when called and wait, but it takes them to a higher level. You will learn emergency cues and new behaviors that are geared to be effective even if your dog gets loose. Stopping your dog if he is running away from you, signaling your dog to go into a down from a distance, and asking your dog to come to you while ignoring distractions are just a few of the skills that you will learn in this class. Preparing for safety in the real world is emphasized. This is an 8 week class and it is limited to 5 dogs. Cost $199.
This 8-week course is limited to 5 dogs and is open to any dog that has completed our Basic, Basic for Puppy Grads or Petite Pals course
