Pierce College Extension Beginning Obedience Class

In this 6-week class, you and your dog will work on basic obedience commands such
as “sit, lie down, stay, stand, come, leave it, to heel nicely on a leash and meet other
dogs and people in a mannerly fashion”. In addition, you will learn different dog
sports activities like, “agility with jumps, tunnels and weave poles, competition
obedience/rally exercises, nose work searching and even many types of dog tricks.
With some practice, you will gain more confidence working with your dog, and you
may even be amazed how much fun you can have together.
Prerequisite: The dog must be at least 4 months old and have current vaccination.
Please bring your dog to the first class with any collar and 6 foot leash you normally
use, but no flexi leashes, plenty of tasty treats (dog or human kind, cheese, hotdogs,
chicken, steak etc.) and a toy if they are so inclined.
Laurie Burnam has been teaching dog training in the LA and Ventura area for 25
years, competing in agility, herding, obedience and rally competitions, earning many
titles, awards and ribbons with her Australian Shepherd dogs. Previously she
trained horses and riders for 35 years, also competing in western style horse shows.

Course Objective: This course will help people achieve a better bond with their dog, to show them how to get a mannerly but still happy dog that can be taken in public places with ease. They will be introduced to many dog sports and perhaps decide to continue with more advanced training in one or more of those activities.
