Advanced Obedience

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 virus, TDTC has had to make adjustments to our Winter 2021 schedule for our Advanced Obedience classes (Novice I, Novice II, Open, Utility, Nosework and Rally). We have all missed training and look forward to seeing you soon.  Please be patient with us as we try to accommodate all of you who wish to return to classes when they resume on the week of January 4, 2021. 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IN ITS ENTIRETY.

  1. You must fill out a new enrollment form as the schedule has changed. The new form is available on the website.
  2. Fall  enrollment is for TDTC members first, then others.
  3. Class size will be limited to 7 students and NO additional visitors.  NO EXCEPTIONS..
  4. You must give a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
  5. If more than seven students enroll in a class we will use a lottery process to fill the class.
  6. Classes will be 55 minutes in length so the instructor has time to clean the ring before the next class.
  7. Enrollment forms must be in by WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2020.
  8. You may either mail your enrollment form, drop it in the mail slot at the club or email it to spotteddogs731@aol.com
  9. Masks are required in all classes.
  10. Hope to see you soon!

Please contact spotteddogs731@aol.com with any questions.

We teach and encourage positive training methods using treats, toys, and verbal praise as rewards.  All instructors are volunteers and have earned at least one AKC Obedience Title with their dog.  All instructors complete a hands-on apprenticeship program and participate in continuing education.
