Adult Training Sessions


Our Ohkom Calendar and Events is here.  This will show you all the classes and events we hold, the  start of classes and the end of classes. When I am open and when I am closed. Please refer to it often.!  The Registration form is here. See Intermediate Obedience Below.

Obedience is recommended for dogs of all ages.  Better to start at a young age, but older dogs have excelled and enjoy having  the special attention.  We learn basics, from sit, down, come to train your companion to be well mannered to competition levels. Many of our students have AKC obedience titles. You are not required to compete to attend our training center. We train first and foremost for family manners and companion.

If you are a New Student over six months of age you will be required to come in for an Evaluation.

Obedience Classes Range from Beginner Pet Companion  to Competitive Performance Events. I have competed in AKC, Conformation, Agility , Obedience and Rally since 1990.  In 2012 I started competing in CPE Agility. Myself and my students are locally recognized in many title accomplishments in both AKC and CPE, AKC Canine Good Citizens Program and Therapy Dog.

Instructor’s Choice

A Class for the dog who wants to do everything, this class is allotted for Instructor to choose the activity (obedience, rally,  open obedience, agility) for the class. This is a pre-advanced to advanced level class. Students will be asked to help with equipment set up and tear down.

Rally Obedience

This class will combine your basic obedience skills with handling techniques.  Communicational skills with various obedience exercises.  This class will gear you towards competing, not required, should you choose to test your skills under a judge. Fun and challenging.

Beginner Novice Obedience

A new venue introduced by AKC in 2010.  Great class for the after basic class dog and the retired dog. Includes Rally, Obedience, Sit for exam, Sit stay and Recall. VERY FUN and great way to introduce even the most novice dog to the ring. ALL ON LEAD. Do not need to compete to take this class. It teaches great discipline and again very fun for the retired dog that still likes to learn.
