Obedience Classes

Please contact Ellen Blitz esblitz@att.net first to discuss if this is the correct class for you and your dog.

Below is a list of our upcoming obedience classes. Both purebred and mixed breed dogs are welcomed and encouraged to participate in our obedience sessions!

Advanced Obedience Classes taught by Missi Roland who has been involved in competitive obedience for almost 40 years. She has titled her own dogs and those of her clients with great success. Missi has competed in multiple dog sports including Barn Hunt, Tracking, Freestyle Dancing, Flyball, Dock Diving, Hunt Tests, Agility, and Herding, thus providing her with alternate approaches for training obedience. Missi’s titles include three AKC OTCh’s, three UKC OTCh’s and a CKC OTCh. Missi aims for happy, driven to work dogs that are not robots! “I prefer the attitude to the accuracy but feel you can train to get both!”.

Private Lessons are available
