Family dogs, in our community, have a lot of requirements -- to be good in the house, play nicely with kids, play well with dogs, not bark too much, walk nicely on a leash--just to name a few! Most of these qualities are really learned skills.
AdobeDogs teaches you to use positive training (and food) to help your dog learn basic manners as well as cues, make great decisions, and be calm in many situations. The result is a trusting, happy, well-behaved canine companion.
Molly's AdobeDogs will help you enjoy training your great community dog!
New class schedule coming soon!
Please email me at Molly@AdobeDogs.com if you see a class in the list below that you would like repeated.
Searching for Fun
This is a super fun and exhausting class for ALL dogs--All ages, all breeds, all physical conditions, all levels of training (even no training)!
Heel, Stay, Come
That's it, in a nutshell... Just the basics but the basics under tough circumstances, which is really when we need dogs to work for us, right? Limited to dogs that are FRIENDLY or shy- but not aggressive to dogs and people.
Rally for Fun
This is a fun course; it's a great place to become familiar with some more traditional obedience skills in a light-hearted way. (And learn that training and fun are not mutually exclusive!)
Tricks Tricks Tricks
A whole class of just tricks and fun! While it may sound like fluff, you will learn a LOT about getting accurate and fast responses from your dog. You'll be surprised at how fast your dog can learn fun things you never thought possible.
This class is for everyone!!!!!!
The Accidental Dog Trainer
Do you wonder how your dog learned something? Do you feel like your dog doesn't understand you sometimes? Julie Bond will discuss how we train our dogs—both intentionally and accidentally. (And, how they train us. This class is for people only and meets only one time. Julie is a certified animal behaviorist and a very entertaining speaker.
We will repeat this class in a few months. Check back and don't miss out!
