RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital has new dog obedience training classes forming beginning in February.
The vet center offers classes both for dogs that have never learned basic obedience and dogs that perhaps don't learn as quickly as most or forgot what they've learned. "Beginner Puppy" and "Beginner Adult Classes" teach the basic commands, how to socialize your dog and how to use schedules to maintain behavioral wellness.
The "Advanced Beginner Class" is offered to dogs that have taken a beginner class and have an understanding of the basic commands. Owners and their dogs will hone the skills learned in the beginner class, and also work on left and right turns, recalls with distractions, sits and downs with walk arounds, down from stand position, and stays with distractions.
- Beginning Puppy -- for puppies age 3-6 months -- on Mondays, beginning Monday, Feb. 22 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
- Advanced Beginner -- on Mondays, beginning Feb. 22 from 7:40-8:40 p.m.
- Beginner Adult -- for ages 6 months and older -- on Fridays, beginning Feb. 26 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
