Dog Training at Roaring Brook Kennels

Roaring Brook Kennels now offers dog training through Jillian Cheney. Classes offered are:

Puppy Manners: Those early weeks are such a critical developmental period for your pup and the perfect time to start training. This class is for puppies 10-20 weeks old (at the start of class) with at least two sets of vaccinations shots. You will learn how to teach your puppy to walk nicely on a loose lead as well as these commands: sit, down, come, leave it, wait and drop.

Topics during class will include housetraining, crate training, mouthing or biting, jumping up and socialization. Class runs for six weeks for one hour.

Obedience - Basic/Intermediate: For the first time, we are offering basic to advanced classes in obedience. You will learn to teach your dog to walk loosely on a lead as well as the following commands: sit, down, come, stay, leave it, wait, settle and drop it. Rigid heeling and off lead reliability will also be taught. Every week offers helpful topics for problem solving and enhancing the health and relationship with your best friend. Class runs for six weeks for one hour.

Agility - Coming Soon

Treadmill Fitness: This class is a good way to learn how to use your treadmill with your dog and also provides practical experience with performing general K9 stretches. Stretching increases your dog's range of motion, and the your dog's use of the treadmill is a great way to help your dog with focused energy release. Drop-in or attend for four sessions for a fitness program.
