Little Moe’s K9 Academy offers classes to help you train a puppy right up to competition in a number of disciplines including Agility, Rally, Obedience and more! With all of our instructors certified in Operant Conditioning Behaviour Analysis, you can have peace of mind knowing you are receiving expert instruction from the most experienced professionals around.
Obedience (Level 1, 2 and 3)
Become a Little Moe’s K9 Good Citizen! Level 1 class will focus on basic manners and problem solving class. Teach your dog all your traditional basic obedience moves sit, down, stay, come, heel position and walking on a loose leash. We want to take it a bit further and educate handlers on how to read basic dog behaviour, is your dog stressed, happy, scared ? Can you tell the signs ? How will you deal with them if there is a problem? Deal with jumping, barking, biting, chewing, etc. Finally we will do meet and greets with people and other dogs teaching the dogs to be appropriate, wait at the door, off or leave it, go to your mat and walking on a loose leash with different distractions. Included when you register for the class is a clicker and a booklet with important information and class homework sheets.
Level 2 we will raise our expectations a little bit! How do we get them fluent in their behaviors anywhere we want to take them? For example going for a walk down town, your neighborhood or going to the park. At least two weeks of this class we will be meeting in different locations in town to work your dogs in real life situations. Other things we will be working on are lots of recalls (come), sit for a friendly stranger, stand stay while being groomed or having an exam, longer stays, faster downs (drop) more meet and greets and heel work.
Level 3 is for those people who want to take their training to another level. Don’t think you have to be competitive to do this class. If you love working with your pooch small to giant and you want to challenge yourself and have a really well trained dog try this you will be surprised how much fun it can be! We will work towards off leash recalls, off leash heeling, out of sight stays, targeting exercises, we will work with the competitive Rally obedience signs and be tested at the end of the course. We will also train at least two weeks of the 6 week course in another location.
Agility (Starters & Advanced)
Agility is fast moving, challenging and energetic activity enjoyed immensely by dogs and handlers alike. It’s also a great spectator sport. Dogs work off lead and are guided by the signals and voice commands of their handlers. They speed around an intricate course over or through a variety of obstacles, including jumps, tunnels, weave poles, even a teeter totter and must complete the course cleanly, within the time allowed. Agility is open to all breeds, and since dogs are grouped according to size, with appropriate jump height and speed requirements for each size range, every dog has the same chance to excel, whether short and stocky or tall and lean.
Agility classes are held weekly, year-round by Kaden Springer of Jump It! Canine Agility.
In addition to a wide range of classes, we are also proud to host Conformation shows, Obedience and Rally trials at our venue. To learn more about upcoming events at Little Moe’s K9 Academy, please follow us on Facebook.
