Utility Obedience Training
Utility is an advanced class of competition that is offered once a dog and handler team have earned an Open Obedience title. Utility exercises are quite different from the exercises in Open and are typically broken down by exercise into smaller “seminars” for training. The Utility exercises include: the Signal Exercise, Scent Discrimination, Directed Retrieve (gloves), Moving Stand and Exam and Directed Jumping. These seminars are taught periodically depending upon demand.
Young puppies are very open to learning new things and we offer a fun class that helps foster their eagerness to learn and work at an early age. Puppies must be at least three months of age and we recommend they have a minimum of their second set of puppy shots. This six week class is offered upon demand, no more than two times per year.
Rally is a form of obedience where the handler and dog team proceed through a course of signs with obedience commands written on them. Competition includes three levels: Novice, Advanced and Excellent with the signs/commands becoming more advanced. Rally classes are offered upon demand, typically once per year.
Obedience Practice (Drill)
On the first through third Tuesday of every month, we will offer an obedience drill class starting at 7:30 for approximately 45 minutes. This class is open to anyone with a moderately trained to experienced dog and offers attendees an opportunity to practice their skills in a group class with other dogs and distractions around, While there is a class leader, minimal instruction is provided. Drill class is $10/session for non-Club members and $5/session for Club members. Although this is a non-registered drop-in class, a $30 pre-payment for classes is required through PayPal at this time. On the first night of attendance, participants will receive a ticket for 3 or 6 sessions dependent upon Club membership status.
We also offer Open and Utility Run-Thrus when there is enough interest.
Our classes are held on the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds (Davie)
