Dog Obedience and Owner Education

"Basic obedience is the foundation on which every aspect of a happy dog relationship is built. The performance in any dog-related activity can be directly attributed to the quality of the basic dog training to which your canine has been exposed." ~ Ron McGrady

Basic Obedience Training Course

Basic Obedience is run in a group setting with a portion of the class being dedicated to each student and their dog as they work their canine on that particular exercise. Class meets once a week for 8 weeks. 

The dog trainer first explains the lesson, including reasons behind the training, and then demonstrates it using one of the Cedarwoods dogs.  Students then bring in their dogs one at a time, allowing them to focus on the task at hand without distractions.
Tune Up class is strongly recommended after week 4 of Basic Obedience Class.  Tune Up is a drop in class where we work on applying the lessons learned in the Basic Obedience Class under distracting situations. After week 4, students are provided with a Tune-up Pass good for 4 sessions for free!  There is also a Handlers class available for extra instruction on handling the lead.  Please scroll down for dates, times, and registration.
This course will teach your dog the following skills:
They will be attentive to you regardless of distraction.
Walk beside you without pulling.
Sit automatically when you stop.
Down on command, maintain a Sit-Stay and a Down-Stay.
They will understand the command for Recall, Stand and Finish.

Tuition is $255.00
If you are enrolling two or more Dogs from the same household in the same class the cost is $235 per additional dog. Discount is automatically applied when form is filled out.

Advanced Offlead Training

We offer a 12-week Offlead Course that picks up right where we leave off in our Basic Obedience Class.

The classes are held indoors and the dogs advance much more rapidly than in Basic. They work with many distractions; thus, along with having been taught how to learn, they really move ahead. You two are working at a higher skill level which all add up to this being a very fun class. Check out the schedule below for the date of the next start up class.

Completion of Cedarwoods Basic Obedience Class is required or approval from The Trainer to attend this Advanced course

Class Tuition: $285.00
If you are enrolling two or more Dogs from the same household, enter Coupon Code (Multidog) at check out to receive special pricing.

Private Lessons

Over the years our focus has been on classroom instruction for Basic Obedience, however we realize that special circumstances may require a more individual style of training.

For those students who are currently enrolled in class or who have graduated , we also have private lessons for special problems.eas.
