Group Obedience Training Class

We have a new and exciting group obedience training class to offer at Dogwood Ranch! Whether you want to have a well-mannered puppy/dog or if you are interested in bringing your dog to a convalescent home as a therapy dog, this class can accomplish both. We will be focusing on the test items for the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen (AKC CGC) test. Passing the official AKC CGC test is a prerequisite to a Therapy Dog class! In this 6-week group obedience training class, we will work on sitting politely for petting, walking through a crowd, stay, and loose leash walking, among many other things!

The class will include:

  • 6 group obedience training sessions geared towards basic obedience and the AKC CGC test

  • 1 Free day of daycare at Dogwood Ranch on a class day

We have a limited class size so please sign up early. To sign up, click the link here

If Sunday does not work for you and there is another day and time frame that works for you for a training class, please let us know! If we have enough participants requesting that day/time frame, we can work to accommodate. Please fill out the sign up link and specify your requested day(s) and time frames. We will reach out to you if we can schedule another class around your requests.

We have a limited class size so please sign up early! To fill out the request form, click the link here. Registering on the link will officially NOT secure your spot. Due to limited availability, we will only be able to accept the first 12-15 applicants. We will be keeping the registration form open to take wait list applicants in case of any cancellations. We will contact you directly by April 1, 2020 to let you know if you are officially in the class or wait listed.  

Our trainer for this class will be Ashley Rosebeary. Ashley has been training professionally full-time for almost 3 years. She started working for Stofer's Labs (Dogwood Ranch's sister company) in June 2017. At Stofer's Labs, Ashley raised and socialized puppies from birth all the way to AKC CGC certification. She is also currently working at California Canine where she is teaching 100% positive/force-free group obedience classes from puppy kindergarten through therapy dog certification.  Ashley is an approved AKC CGC evaluator and has applied for her Dog Trainer Certification through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. We are so excited for you guys to work with her. She is amazing!
