Dog Obedience Classes

Fall 2018

The Southington Recreation Department is sponsoring Dog Obedience classes for dogs 10 weeks of age (by the first day of class) and older. The instructor for all classes will be Kevin Medeiros, owner of Stay N Play Pets. There are no residency requirements for this program.

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. Dogs that have already participated in and successfully completed the beginner's level training of this program may opt to sign up for the intermediate level class. (Prior participation in a program offered elsewhere does not qualify for intermediate level training.)

Puppy & beginner level class participants are asked to attend their first class on October 24th 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.
