Red Group

  • Puppies need to be 12 weeks old by October 24. Because of this format, you can start the homeschooling with them even as early as 9 weeks of age!
  • Registration is due by October 2. The first lessons will be mailed out as soon as registration is received, no later than October 4.
  • The first lesson includes a shopping reference guide, a “need to know” about coming to classes, your first “puppy management” skill homework exercise, and the first lesson.
  • The three scheduled IN-PERSON classes will be held on Saturdays at 10:00am on the following days: October 24, November 14, December 5
  • Email lessons will be sent before and during/in between those dates to keep students moving forward with lessons.
  • After each in-person class, I send a personalized recap of what was accomplished, and what needs more work depending on your particular class activities.
  • This hybrid style of class has been very successful so far for the previous classes that have enrolled. I will be honest to you though, that it is a lot of work, BUT the results are AMAZING. We are trying to keep dogs in training, increase social skills for the puppies, and keep in mind the safety of all.
  • Our COVID-19 policy is posted on our website. Note: Masks are still required to enter & exit the building, and during close interactions during lessons.
Thank you very much for considering Family Dog Obedience for your puppy training!
