Within this program your dog will be working on the place command, heeling past distractions, sit, down, stay at 20 feet, recall at 20 feet, accepting friendly strangers without jumping, walking past other dogs without reacting as well as impulse control.
Advanced Canine Good Citizen Group Class
This is a 6-week class that meets once a week for dogs that are over one year of age. In this class we will be working on more advanced obedience such as entering and exiting doorways without pulling, walking through a crowd in a heel position, walking past food and toys that are left on the ground, heeling past distractions such as (cars, bikes, skateboards), three minute down stay and confidence walking up and down stairs or elevators. All dogs that come to this class must have completed the Canine Good Citizen Certification.
This is for owners that wish to trial their dog in Schutzhund Begleithund (BH) Pattern which is a competitive obedience. Dogs will have to perform at a high level of obedience on leash and off leash.
Looking for a little one on one with a trainer? This might be a good option for you and your dog. The private sessions we will be offering will be either 30 or 60 minutes at our training facility.
Therapy dogs are dogs who go into settings such as nursing homes, hospitals and schools with a handler and volunteer their time to give support and comfort to others. Therapy dogs are not considered service dogs and do not have the same access service dogs do. Diversity K9 offers a unique program that allows us to title dogs through AKC and receive an AKC Therapy Dog title. Within this program dogs will need to pass a Canine Good Citizen as well as an Urban Canine Good Citizen test. After all obedience titles have been met the handler, dog and trainer will have ten visits at either a children’s reading program or nursing home to complete the training as a therapy dog.
A service dog is any type of assistance dog that is trained to help people who have disabilities or a medical condition such as diabetes or seizures. Service dogs are required to complete tasks that the owner cannot do themselves and are considered to have full access into environments/ facility’s other dogs are not. Diversity K9 offers a wide range of service dog training from medical alert, mobility, item retrieval, PTSD, as well as mental mobility.
Board and Train Programs
Diversity K9 offers Board and Train programs for obedience as well as behavior modification. Each Board and Train program will be modified for you and your dog. Every dog must go through an evaluation at the training facility with a trainer to better determine what training is best for your pet.
