Training for Obedience, Conformation, Carting, Retrieving, Agility; Behavior Problems Corrected; Group Camping/Training

Shalay Kennels offers Obedience Training classes every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. With over fifty years of training experience, we can help you with most anything you need for your dog.
Training classes are $100.00 for eight one hour lessons, that is one lesson per week. We allow you twelve weeks to get your eight classes in. That way if you miss a week, you don't lose your lesson. You can train on Wednesday evening or Thursday evening any week you want (If the weather is bad on Wednesday come on Thursday or visa versa). You will need your dog's shot record, a snug fitting medium link chain choke collar and a six foot, 5/8" leather or cotton web (not nylon) training leash. If you don't have them, we have them here.

Training will include:

*Your dog's basic obedience (heel, sit, down, stay, come, down on recall, walk around other dogs and people while only paying attention to you, cart pulling, plus much more.)

* We will work on any problems you have with your dog (running away, jumping on people, biting, barking, housebreaking.)

* We will work on anything special you wish to teach your dog (tracking, retrieving, tricks)

* If you have a medium to large dog, we will teach it to mow the lawn. This is not a joke, it is a serious part of training.

Shalay offers group weekend camping/training (TENT). You tent camp on the trail with your dog and we train from Friday evening to 3:00 PM Sunday afternoon. You will love it!

If you teach your dog to do a job and give him a job, he won't have all the that time to think about getting into trouble. If you don't have ten minutes a day for your dog, get rid of the dog.

Think about this and we hope to see you soon.
