Sirius K9 Academy Basic Group Obedience Classes run 7 weeks in length and are held in Yorba Linda.
Prerequisite: You must sign up for this class on our website under "Sign Up For A Class", pay a deposit of $50. per dog to reserve a spot and be added to the class roster, and submit your dog's vaccination records via email or fax before the end of the work day the Wednesday prior to the class start date. Please also include the rescue or shelter paperwork if you are wanting to receive that discount in your email or fax to us. You may pay the deposit via our website under "Make A Payment", by mail (if its at least 2 weeks before the start date), or over the phone. The balance is due on the first day of class and the deposit will be applied to the class fee. Contact Caroline at 714-296-9714 or via email at Caroline@siriusk9training.com for more class details.
This class is great for dogs of all ages! We have many dogs that start the class behaving aggressively towards other dogs or that are extremely timid / fearful / shy due to a lack of socialization or improper socialization, traumatic experiences, or just poor genetics, but by the end of the last class improve so dramatically that it is remarkable! (This happens in every class!)
If you are not sure where your dog fits in because you have done prior professional training with your dog elsewhere, please put your dog through our Basic Obedience Test as specified at a neutral outdoor location (away from the non-distracting comforts of your home) to test and judge your dog's skills properly and accurately. If your dog can do all of the exercises without a correction as indicated, then you may schedule an evaluation with us so that we can move you onto our Intermediate Group Obedience class. If your dog cannot pass our Basic test as specified, then you would start there. Basic Obedience Test and Certification
We recommend that dogs be at least 4 months old when starting this class and have completed all vaccinations. If your dog is younger than 4 months old, we recommend that you sign up for our Puppy Manners class.
WE EDUCATE YOU on how to train your dog properly by using both positive and negative consequences together CORRECTLY! We encourage the use of toys and treats to motivate your dog and make it FUN! We have many references and have really great feedback about our basic classes!
Please note: The first day of class is a 3 hour orientation. Dogs do not attend the first class. We encourage the entire family to attend the orientation as it is extremely insightful and educational. Anyone wanting to handle a dog in class must attend the orientation. We will teach you how to get your dog's respect! We especially encourage women to handle the dog in class, as it is very common for women to have a harder time getting the dog's respect. (We will tell you why this happens at the orientation!)
Class Dates: Our next Basic Group Classes begin soon! Our classes are limited in size. Please check our schedules page for start dates.
The 3 hour Basic Class Orientation is held in Yorba Linda once every 8 weeks at 10am and is mandatory for those wanting to attend one of our basic group classes. (You can not attend our basic classes without first attending an Orientation in Yorba Linda first.) You can also attend a one-on-one two-hour private lesson instead of the orientation prior to lesson #2 at an additional cost and join the next basic class if you cannot attend one of our scheduled orientation dates.
The Basic Class Orientation is also open to those who just want to be educated further about dogs in general. It is a wonderful class for those who want to expand their knowledge, improve their handling and leadership skills, fix issues they are having at home, and who want to develop a better understanding of their dog, as well as a stronger bond, and build more trust with their own dog. You can attend just the Basic Class Orientation without joining the basic class for $50.
Please note: If you would like to only attend the orientation but do not want to participate in one of the basic classes, you must still sign up for the Basic Class Orientation and pay for the class in advance in order to reserve your spot. Please put in the comment section that you are just wanting to attend the orientation.
