Dog Obedience Training Classes
Your dog will learn numerous on-leash exercises on command, including: sit, lie down, stay, stand, heel, come-when-called and how to remain in control when approached and touched by a stranger. The come-when-called command is also taught off-leash. Instruction methods stress motivation and de-emphasize correction or punishment. John Bickel, CKO, a graduate of Jack & Wendy Volhard’s Top Dog Training Camp, and Cornell University’s Solving Canine Behavior Problems seminar, coordinates all of Molly’s trainers. Classes meet weekly for one hour. Duration of course is six weeks. Size of class is approximately six dogs. Includes six weekly classes, training collar and leash and workbook.

After mastering the ten skills, passing the CGC test together, and taking the Responsible Dog Ownership pledge, you and your pup will join the proud ranks of over 1 million dogs who have earned their Canine Good Citizen award– accomplishment that’s definitely worthy of extra belly rubs!

What is TDI?
Therapy dogs are dogs who go with their owners to volunteer in settings such as schools, hospitals, and nursing homes.
From working with a child who is learning to read to visiting a senior in assisted living, therapy dogs and their owners work together as a team to improve the lives of other people. Therapy dogs are not service dogs.
*Important: This program is not for dogs experiencing aggression issues. This is a four-week beginner to intermediate training program in which your dog will spend the first three weeks with one of our obedience trainers. At the end of the three weeks, you return to Molly’s for your first training lesson and your dog then returns home with you.
During the next week you learn how to reinforce and practice the commands your dog has learned. It is recommended that you and your dog return to Molly’s for the free private lessons with the instructor who trained your dog. We recommend 4 TO 5 lessons during this week period. The training lessons must start at your pick up date. We teach you to handle your dog, how to build a relationship of affection and trust, while establishing you as the control person. We will ensure that you and your dog are working comfortably as a team. And the program does not end there, as we are just a phone call away if you need additional information, support and/or training. Includes: four-week program, textbook, training collar, leash, and handbook.og are working comfortably as a team.
