Two levels of dog training classes will be held at the Linn-Benton Community College’s Benton Center starting June 25.
Dog Training I will focus on how to positively motivate your dog to respond quickly despite distractions, to reliably come when called, and will teach the technique of loose lead walking.
Dog Training II will build on the skills learned in Dog Training I to include precision heeling, learning new tricks, and politely greeting strangers. This class can help you to begin preparing for therapy work, rally obedience, competing in dog sports, or taking the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.
These five-week classes will meet Wednesdays from 6 to 6:50 p.m. at the LBCC Benton Center, 757 NW Polk Ave., Corvallis. Dog Training I starts June 25, and Dog Training II starts July 30. Cost for each class is $39. Veterinary shot records and dog history form required.
