Obedience Training Classes
Our obedience classes range from basic through advanced. We base our training techniques on the Volhard method. Ebb Tide instructors have years of experience with all types of dogs. Whether you simply want a well mannered pet or are preparing for the show ring, we have a class to fit your needs.
Classes are limited in size so that you can receive the attention you need from the instructor and assistants to succeed.
We have a 48 x 75 foot fully matted building dedicated to training. Obedience classes are held two nights a week all year and Saturdays.
Rally ObedienceRally obedience is a fun new sport where the dog and handler follow a course of signs that tell them what to do such as sit, down, stand, stay, heel; as well as where to go next such as left, right, or about turn.
The dogs really love it as it is fast moving and less formal than traditional obedience.
We offer rally classes from the beginning level thru competition. Contact us for a schedule of upcoming rally classes.
At Ebb Tide Kennels we do more than just teach you how to train your dog. We truly believe that dog training can and should be fun for the trainer and the dog. Our training methods work in concert with your dog's instincts to provide a rapid and fun learning experience. They are based upon years of study, training and instructing.
We are routinely in contact with the best known dog trainers in the country, allowing us to keep up to date with the latest concepts in dog behaviour and training. Our methods must be judged by their effectiveness in reducing problem behavior and in creating a better relationship between dog and owner. Clients consistently give us high marks in these areas.
"I thank the gentle and fun training we received at Ebb Tide for helping me bond with my rescue dog Lucas. He came from an environment that provided little human or dog socialization. We started obedience class just 4 weeks after he came to live with me. The level of trust and understanding between us has grown immensely as a result of our classes at Ebb Tide."
