Dog Obedience Class

At Flushing Animal Hospital it is very important to us that your pet be an enjoyable and well balanced member of your family. We believe that obedience training is an important aspect of any dog's life. To help you in your training efforts, we offer several types of obedience classes: Puppy Classes, Adult Beginners Classes, Intermediate Classes, and Advanced/Therapy Classes. These classes are 8 weeks long.


Puppy Class: $75 for 8 weeks: Did you know that the optimum age for your puppy to learn new behaviors is between 8 and 16 weeks old? In puppy class, the trainer will be introducing several new commands to help you train your puppy. They will be learning how to walk on a leash, the beginnings of sit, stay, heal, and come on command, as well as socializing. Socialization is one of the most important aspects of training as it helps the puppy get used to new people, new situations, and new pets. By doing so they are learning not to be fearful which often times leads to aggressive behavior.

Items to Bring to Class:
• Soft Dog Treats
• A Squeaky Dog Toy
• A Bowl of Water with a Lid (For break time)
• A Regular Collar
• A 6 Foot Nylon or Leather Leash (No retractable leashes)
• A Copy of a Vaccine Certificate (See "Requirements & Schedule" for more information)


Adult Beginner Class: $85 for 8 weeks:
For dogs 3 months of age and over, we offer our Adult Beginners Class. There is no age restriction on this class and seniors are welcome as well! In this class Joyce will be teaching the beginnings of sit, stay, heal, leash breaking, come on command, some retrieving, and socializing. Socializing is a very important aspect of training. It helps them get used to new people, new pets, and new places and by doing so they will be less fearful which leads to less aggression down the road. Have question about class? Let Joyce know and she'd be happy to help!

Items to Bring to Class:

Beginner Intermediate Class: $85 for 8 weeks:

For further training after completion of beginners class, Intermediate class will help to maintain and further your furry friends acceptance and awareness of how to merge obedience with the not so obedient world around them. In this class, Joyce dives deeper into the commands she began teaching them in the beginners class along with adding a few new commands. These include off-leash healing, off-leash retrieving, jumping hurdles, and several others.

Private Lessons: Meet with Joyce for pricing
We offer private lessons for those dogs who need more of a one on one session, either because they are not social with other dogs, or because they need to focus on specific problems. Private Lessons can be arranged around your schedule, just let us know when's good for you!
