Gableridge Obedience Classes: 

prinag2I believe that Dogs can learn appropriate and desirable behaviours without the use of force and punishment. Using positive techniques you can not only teach your dog the behaviours you want but you can create a dog that is thinking about ways to offer you behaviors that will be rewarded.

Dogs participating in Obedience classes must be at least 16 weeks of age and up to date on rabies and routine vaccinations. Details of upcoming classes can be found below.  You may register for classes by filling out the online form.
