Dogs who are just starting out should enroll in Basic Obedience. Graduates of Basic Obedience should take the CGC class. Even if your dog sits, shakes, lies down, etc. at home, please enroll in Basic Obedience unless you are sure he will listen and respond to your cues 9 out of 10 times the first time you ask in a group setting. You’ll be glad you took your time!

Denise Fenzi TEAM Dog Sports Foundation Level 1

TEAM is an acronym for “Training Excellence Assessment Modules” which were developed by Denise Fenzi as a progression-oriented titling program that emphasizes excellence in training. Each TEAM level adds complexity for the dog-handler team. The dog-handler team is presented with a wide range of interesting skills to master right from the start; there’s no reason to hold back on distance work or jumping exercises while teaching your dog to heel! Titles are earned via video submission. http://fenziteamtitles.com/

This class will introduce skills used in Team Level 1.

Class Policies:

Class registration closes 24 hours in advance of the class start date. You must preregister online or by completing a class registration form in order to attend a class. Classes are subject to cancellation or date changes at the discretion of OTCPBC training staff.

Because class size is limited and sufficient time is necessary to contact alternate students, class tuition may only be refunded if notice, in writing or by email, is received seven (7) business days prior to the start date of a class by the instructor or the director. OTCPBC does not offer partial refunds, make-up lessons, private instruction in lieu of group classes, or the transfer of monies from one class to another.

We do not offer make-ups, private lessons, or transfers of monies from one class to another for any reason, including the onset of estrus in bitches. Handlers may not “drop in” to classes unless the class is a designated “drop in” class.

Our basic obedience classes are not designed to rehabilitate dogs who behave aggressively toward other dogs. Aggressive behavior includes barking and lunging on leash. Contact us at [email protected] for a referral on these issues.

Class fees will calculate a 20% discount for club members) + $4 processing fee for online registration.

Please bring proof of DHP, bordetella, and rabies (as age appropriate) the first night of class.

Please print the following letter containing information about club policies and directions to the facility after you register for class.
