Dog Obedience Classes

Fall 2019

The Southington Recreation Department is sponsoring Dog Obedience classes for dogs 10 weeks of age (by the first day of class) and older. Puppy and Beginner level classes will be taught by Kevin Medeiros; the Intermediate level classes will be taught by Lindzay Medeiros. There are no residency requirements for this program. The fee to participate is $135.00 per dog.

Participants will receive instructions in obedience training including sit, stay, come, heel and other commands. Bring your dog, a training collar and a 6-foot lead to class.

Puppy & Beginner level participants are asked to attend the first class on October 1st without their dogs.

NOTE: This program is not suitable for dogs who exhibit aggressive behaviors towards people or other dogs; dogs with issues of incessant barking are also prohibited. Participants (dogs) attending these classes must be able to withstand an hour in a group setting with 8-10 other dogs and their owners in close proximity.
